[...] Frankly, her irritable tone and negative attitude humiliated me at a time when I sick (cold/flu). I wouldn't want anyone to feel that vulnerable in any situation; to experience such a sensation in a doctor's office is, in my mind, untenable. I can only hope that Dr. Deans was having a very bad day herself--we are all human, regardless of profession, and perhaps she did not sleep well the night before or was dealing with a personal crisis. But I also hope she is aware that her overt hostility and palpable negativity must be redressed should it continue to be manifest in other situations. The result for me is that I did not feel comfortable asking her about another ongoing health concern related (I imagine) to the menstrual period that I told her I had skipped in December. She made me feel ashamed and confused at a moment when I had turned to her for help. I left the office in tears.

I am a big fan of Dr. Deans. I know she cares about her patients. I like her communication style, its direct, clear and to the point. She always takes time to answer my follow-up questions. I am a detail person, so I appreciate the level of detail she provides. She consistently explains her rational or thinking about a decision. Dr. Deans (and of the office in general) and very responsive to email (MyChart). She also interpreted my annual check-up results over email which was very helpful. I have a Zika test performed that wasn't handled properly by the State testing service. Dr. Deans called me personally to explain what happened, the impact and what they were doing to ensure this doesn't occur again. She took responsibility and answered all of my questions. She earned my trust during this experience.

In this day and age, it is sad that physicians have to allot only 5 - 10 minutes per visit per patient, so that they can squeeze in all their managed care patients and still earn the same salary as when they were seeing less patients. It is a good thing that I am relatively healthy.

Dr. Deans was easily the best overall medical practitioner I have ever seen. She was referred to me and I completely understand why. I am happy that I have recently established her as my primary care physician, and while I hope to rarely need medical care in the future I am confident that Dr. Deans is well equipped to be my first medical option.

I was in severe pain and she decided the easiest thing to treat me for was a bladder infection, even though the dip stick test didn't fully indicate that. If she had done a blood test and a cat scan at that time, it would have saved me 5 days of pain. I am not happy with Dr. Deans or Dr. [...].

dr. deans is a great provider. she is professional and explains things well, including why a medication is needed and how it can help (i.e. alleviating symptoms, reducing inflammation, etc). she explains what she is doing during her exams which is helpful for the patient to understand the need for her examine the area. she is an asset to the office in my humble patient opinion and why I haven't looked for care elsewhere. she's amazing.

I wish my mom could see her. (Dr. Deans) [...] I would have liked to spend more time, and be more casual and slow about things. I just think things used to be less rushed at the doctors' office. It maybe a majority demand for things to be rushed- unfortunately. [...]

I like Amy Deans & her style quite a bit. She's straight forward, listens to you & answers questions. We spent time on the internet on CDC website looking at the map to see what immunizations were required. [...] I changed my mind about route after talking with pharmacist & Amy Deans went along with my new decision. [...]
