Very low opinion of this doctor. He treated my young adult daughter for a kidney stone. This was a 3mm stone, he insisted on putting in a ureteral stent before sending her home from the hospital. When he told us to make a follow up appointment, I informed him that our insurance was not accepted at his practice as I found this out a couple months prior when I was to follow up with his partner for a kidney stone. He said that well, he could independently choose to if he wanted. I believed him. Costly mistake. We had to pay a lot out of pocket for that. Ended up following up with another urologist who was great. He treated my daughter very well and in the way I expected the treatment for a 3mm stone in the first place. Everyone in our family has had them and I am a nurse. I know a little about kidney stones and how they are usually treated. This incident was 7 months ago, still paying a bill from this unnecessary procedure.
He seems very knowledgeable, but lacked faith in my own assessment saying Im looking for a diagnosis. I believe the entire reason a patient goes to the doctor is in search of a diagnosis to the problem they are having. I thought a patients initial assessment of symptoms were used to help guide doctors in their testings, not to be ridiculed.
I have known Dr Dean for approximately eight years. I was very disappointed when I heard that he was leaving the Baton Rouge area. He is an excellent doctor, a great humanitarian.
I would not recommend this physician. He has a very nasty attitude and demeanor. He asked inappropriate questions and made me feel very uncomfortable. I am usually in a pleasant mood but this man made my blood boil.
After waiting to see Dr. Odell Joseph Dean, Jr for 3.5 hours, he came into the room with a very arrogant attitude. I felt sexually harassed from the moment he started with vulgar details that could have been explained in a much better manner. I think he was disappointed that it wasnt my husband he was seeing for that visit. He seemed to get really into all the explanations with very sexually graphic details. This seemed to be very pleasurable to him and seemed to highly excite him, way too much for just an overactive bladder diagnosis. I recommend no one see him and be put through this terribly horrific game he plays.
Dr. Dean is very compassionate and concerned about the patients understanding of his diagnosis. He even wrote his findings down on my note pad so I could take it home for her to read
What a wonderful and caring physician. I saw him in Baton Rouge for a recurrent problem. He was my 4th urologist and the only one that got me back on track. Great bedside manner. I cant say enough!!
Very thorough, took time to explain my problem and treatment options, and really cares. Even impressed my daughter, and thats never happened before. Hes an excellent, superior physician!
Amazing doctor who truly cares about his patients. He made me feel so much better. Best doctor in town!
Arrogant with no regard to the amount of time his patients are kept waiting.
I had use this doctor for several months and then developed a sever UTI and had to go to ER and this doctor put a stent in my ureter to supposedly to help pass a kidney stone. Needless to say since I did not have insurance he would not treat me for my follow up after instilling the stent and would not remove it. Ive now had the stent for 3 years and it has calcified in the ureter. The new doctor that I see now has tried to remove it after using lithotripsy without success and may have at least 2 more lithotripsy treatments in the hope that the calcification can be loosen so the stent can be removed. I would not recommend Dr, Dean as a urologist unless you have very good insurance or he will do the same to you as he did to me.
DR.DEAN IS A WONDERFUL DOCTOR. HE SAVED MY LIFE. I HAVE REGAIN MY FAITH IN DOCTORS AND MEDICIAN.
I would recommend Dr. Dean to everyone. He is a blessing to medicine
Without a doubt the best urologist between Dallas and Louisiana. He is blessed with an overabundance of energy, compassion, and intelligence.
