I would definitely return for care from Dr. Dean. She is professional, kind, and caring. She provides options for care.

I loved that Dr. Dean spoke directly to me without typing into a computer.  She explained every option and made my decision easy. Everyone was pleasant and professional.  Great environment.

Dr. Dean and her staff were fantastic! Everyone who I interacted with was great! So happy with the care I received!

Erin Dean and her staff have been very good to treat and care about my injury.  Would highly recommend her and staff.

I would never consider myself as a typical patient.  There are never any typical symptoms for any issue.  I felt an ache in the back of my leg and called Dr. Dean.  She suggested I go to the ER to scan for DVTs and was 100% correct.  We are very thankful for her.

I had a great experience and Dr. Dean was wonderful. I would most certainly recommend Dr. Dean to my family and friends, if needed.

The care I got at Crystal Clinic by Dr. Erin Dean and staff could not have been better. Dr. Dean cares about her patients. Thank you all.

VERY PROFESSIONAL & RESPECTFUL SERVICE. Dr. Dean was so interested in my welfare - physical emotional after a metatarsal fracture.

I had a wonderful first time visit with Dr. Erin Dean. She listens attentively and asks many questions. She explained things clearly and I never felt rushed. I highly recommend Dr. Erin Dean.- Constance

Dr. Dean and her staff are just incredible! My wife and I feel blessed to have found her and happy that she was accepting new patients!

The way my wife and I were treated by Dr. Dean and ALL of her staff from day one was just the best!!  She is very caring, listens to me, takes her time with the appointment; you never feel like she is just going from patient room to room trying to check it off her list.  She truly takes the time with patients and talks with me and my wife.  She is great with her staff and in turn it truly makes a wonderful team. We have worked with Anthony, Alescia, Eric, Diane and the many others on her team and everyone is just so nice and caring.

Dr. Dean took my very messed up ankle/foot and performed a very serious, long surgery and WOW, immediately following the operation I had pain relief and now, with CC’s help, I have been recovering for several months and am starting to slowly walk again.  INCREDIBLE!!  Believe me, all through this time I have given the staff some unique challenges (with extra casts needed, modifications to the casts!, disability paperwork, etc., etc.) and always, and I do mean ALWAYS, my wife and I are treated very nicely and never rushed and never made to feel we are being a bother.

I honestly don’t know where I’d be right now if I didn’t find Dr. Dean; she is unbelievably talented and a very skilled surgeon.   I am truly thankful every single day for her.

From my first visit to Crystal Clinic, I have had nothing but a great experience from all the staff.
