Dr. Dean gave me some really good advice on another problem I am having & referred me to someone.

Wonderful doctor and staff. Seemed organized and answered all my questions and concerns. I thought the hospital staff was also excellent. It was my first time at Passavant.

This was a follow-up visit for my broken wrist. Staff very concerned about my treatment and x-rays to show healing. My appointment was on time even a few minutes early. I had no wait time between the nurse taking my vitals to my seeing the doctor. Great experience.

Dr. Dean has worked with me the past year and three months to rehabilitate an injured wrist. He was extremely knowledgeable and caring each and every visit. When I had my surgery, I saw him before and he spoke to my father after the surgery. I felt his level of care was fantastic! This injury was work related and I never felt like I my treatment was rushed or different due to the workmens comp claim.
