Dr. Robert Dean is an active member of the American Board of Internal Medicine and has practiced medicine in Palm Harbor, Florida for over 15 years. He has supplemented his Internal Medicine training with clinical experience in interventional spine and musculoskeletal procedures. This allows him to better determine an effective treatment plan and to order the tests and procedures most useful in a patient’s care. By listening to and putting into “plain words” confusing medical jargon, Dr. Dean educates patients regarding their injuries as well as their different treatment options.
All of the physician's at Tampa Bay Spine Specialists make it a point to familiarize themselves with the training and skills as well as the office environment of any outside physician or therapist that may become part of a patient’s care.
The mission of the Tampa Bay Spine Specialists team of physicians and surgeons is to provide the highest quality medical and surgical care for people traumatically injured in a motor vehicle accident. Creating an environment in which diagnosis, treatment and patient compliance leads to health care excellence.
