    Dr Dean is an unmistakably outstanding doctor, especially for children. He was able to listen to the ramblings of concerned first-time parents and provide very clear and supportive guidance for next steps. A truly wonderful experience all around

    Was included in speaker mode via cell phone since I as mom, was not able to be in visit because of work. I was able to speak with doctor and interact to suggested interventions and for clear home care instructions. I personally felt that this was necessary and doctor made it happen. :)

    Girl at the front desk that checked me in had a straight face from the beginning to end. I was with my newborn and my five year old and she made me and I daughter feel not welcome. I understand she might not been having a good day but there is no need to take it on other patients.
