Brandon Dean originally pursued a business career because it involves hard work, problem-solving and collaborating with others. “I felt that medicine gave me those same opportunities, but in a way that I could better help other people,” he said of deciding to become a physician assistant.
His love of athletics drew him to specialize in Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. “I know how hard it is to be told that you have to put a hold on doing the things you love, to let your body heal properly.”
He endeavors to provide individualized care, which he believes is accomplished by listening to his patients and learning what goals they seek through treatment. “I can then provide them with education on how to approach their treatment and let them make decisions on how they would like to go forward. In this way, we can work together to find a treatment plan that works for them.”
In his practice he has learned that everyone has “that thing” they love to do. “Whether it is arthritic joints or acute injuries, we can help give people back their lives so that they can be active and without pain again. I feel humbled and honored to be a part of something that can have such great impact on other peoples’ lives.”
Mr. Dean and his wife and their three children enjoy the outdoors – especially hiking, biking, camping, rock climbing, and snowboarding – and he also runs half marathons and plays volleyball. He and his family also enjoy serving their church and community.
