Dr. Dean S had excellent diagnostic skills in his area of expertise allowing him to determine the appropriate treatment for my condition.

February 26, 2018

we waited for 75 minutes to go back to the exam room, then an additional 10 minutes before seeing the doctor. he was thorough with the exam but didn't really speak to any care or what I should do until my next visit (ice/warmth/stay in sling/etc).

Dr. Dean explained the surgery I need for my fingers and showed me x-rays to help me see my problem. I felt very pleased he spent time with me .

February 14, 2018

All good. Will continue to use him to deal with my "trigger finger."

February 12, 2018

Everyone was very caring. Door to door around 45 minutes. whoop whoop! I was very pleased with all aspects of this visit. ( receptionist, nurse, X-ray tech, Drs)
