Always a good experience as long as I'm willing to get appoints with the care team rather than my primary care provider.

This is the first time I have seen a DR. locally. I was very pleased with all aspects of the care I received. I really like the concept of MY CHART which I used this week.

I greatly appreciated Dr. Dean listening to all I had to say and making great recommendations in a medications for me to take. I also greatly appreciated Dr. Dean referring me to a PT that was available in the office, who showed me several very helpful stretches that really helped me recover more quickly.

I saw Dr Dean for what I thought was a sinus infection. She questioned my dental health and, sure enough, I saw my dentist and need oral surgery. No sinus infection but she was astute enough to recognize my allergy meds were not working and prescribed a generic Claritin which made a great deal of difference.

Dr. Dean did not seem to take my concerns about taking oral steroids seriously. I told her that I have glaucoma and that I was worried about steroids raising my eye pressure. She said that it would be fine. I talked to my eye doctor and he told me that it was not a good idea to take steroids, especially orally. I did not take them. I asked her about an injection in my foot for the plantar fasciitis, but she said that I would have to see a podiatrist for that.

I'm a new patient so it was difficult in getting my first appointment. I took several weeks. Perhaps a new system is needed. However, I'm very satisfied with my Doctor.

She asked me not to vomit on her in my nauseated state! She was physically tentative about even touching me for heartrate, lungs, and ear checks. She never acknowledged or asked about me being a mother to young children and my breastfeeding status. She subsequently had to send her nurse in to change a prescription.

this was my first appointment with this doctor. my previous Dr at [...] left the practice. the only Dr. in the Three Providence general practice system available was this doctor. I waited two months to see her I am frustrated that it takes that long to see a doctor especially when you are already a patient in the providence system. I also like electing a doctor and not get the " only one available". Did I like her,yes. But if it was someone I was not comfortable seeing, then what?

Dr. Dean was very attentive & understood the problem perfectly.

i was looking for a doctor closer to me. i just moved to olympia and didn't want to keep driving to Fircrest. she wanted to take me off all my pain meds and treated me like an addict. im not an addict i dot need to be weaned off anything. i hate pain meds but i need them sometimes to get through the day. she wanted to "wean" me off of them. she assumed i needed to be weaned off. with out even giving me another solution for my pain.

in this case, it felt like the doctor had already made her mind up about what the diagnosis is. she did not really entertain a theory I felt could be the case. Secondly, she said I would probably have the swab results within a week. I contacted them and was told it could take 2 weeks. Today [...] is now 2 weeks and I do not have an answer yet. The doctor was thorough with her exam and I feel she had the information i needed. She just came across as if she knew already without really giving a good reason why my theory wasn't possible. Since I haven't received lab results yet, I still think it's possible she was wrong. I'd really like to get my results soon.
