We are a husband and wife practice which allows us to provide a warm and caring approach in a very sophisticated beautiful and homey like office. Dean tends to be serious, clinical yet conservative While he is a very creative out of the box thinker, he always does the right thing for patients and does not sway away from performing what is the right procedure for the right patient. Dean always puts the safety of the patient first and foremost. So he gets excellent results while being conservative for the safety of the patient. Dean will use cutting edge technology when he believes it is appropriate, but will also go with the traditional when that is appropriate. The bottom line is that each patient gets very individual approaches and we try very hard to match the approach with the patient. My role in the patient experience is to provide the woman’s touch. I first see the patient and truly listen to what her issues and concerns. I get an overall assessment about the patient, health history, social history, emotional issues, financial capabilities, try to get any hidden agendas, family issues, etc. By the time Dr. Kane enters the room, you and I have already figured out what is the best approach for you. I am a patient advocate. The patient knows that I have truly listened to what she wants and I explain what she wants to Dean. The patients can rely on me to be honest with my opinion and help her focus on what she came in for. I am very easy going and caring about all our patient needs and they know that they can call me for any problems or questions any time. I try to be extremely personable, but I educate the patient on the procedures with a simple explanation that women can identify with. I am easy to talk to and I give all our patients my cell phone number so that they can call me any time of day or night. We are totally accessible to our pts nearly 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We carry our phones when we travel and answer patients calls wherever and whenever they call. Our office is close to our home so it is easy for us to see a patient in the evenings or weekends with problems of concern. We have taught and instructed our staff to put our patients first, always! They are an excellent staff who follows our philosophy extremely well. Our staff are all friendly, helpful and caring to all our patients. Patients say that they love just coming to our office, they love our home like atmosphere, they love the way they are always treated and they truly enjoy seeing us. We have a unique patient demographic with an wide patient base. We have from the very wealthy and VIPs in our community to middle and lower financial classes. Baltimore has a very high ratio of African Americans and increasing mix of Hispanic and Asian clients. So, we have a practice very rich in diversity from racial mix to ethnic mix. We pride ourselves on this diversity of patients. As a result, we have special lasers to cover the span of color of skin tones. Our Skin program, using the Obagi program has shown tremendous success for all color tones, our before and after pictures are incredibly affective. We are also unique in that we are a one stop shop. Our medspa offers all skin products, laser services, facials, massages. We have a weight loss program run by a highly qualified nurse practitioner. We have a complete, fully accredited surgery center run by a incredible nurse anesthetist who mainly uses twilight to deep sedation. We perform the vast majority of all our surgeries in our office from facelifts, eyelids, brow lifts and nose jobs to tummy tucks, liposuctions and breast surgery including augmentation lifts, reductions and reconstructions. Almost all patients prefer an office OR than to have to go to the hospital. Our practice is a national training center for Botox, Restylane, Juvederm and Obagi, which means we are experts in these areas. Dean teaches other physicians on how to use these products and has been known for his unique out of the box.
