Have you seen Dr. Dean R Conley?
If I could give him lower than one star I would!!

This doctor is very arrogant and rude!! I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2012 and went through Chemo, Mastectomy, and radiation. After having surgery and being hospitalized 9 times in one year I was having some issues that required Dr. Conley to do an endoscopy. I have gained around 50 pounds due to medicine that I am on and being hospitalized 9 times. He was so rude. Told me I was overweight and that was my problem. Believe me I know I am overweight and don't need him to tell me that and wasn't there for him to tell me that. My Mother was in the room with me and it took everything she had not to go off on him. Really didn't need his boost of confidence after just loosing my breasts!! Will NEVER go to him ever again and pray no one else ever has to go through this. His hospital staff is awful too.....try having a blood pressure cuff on the arm they put the medicine to put you to sleep with. It burned terribly!! Horrible experience and believe me for over 3 years I had been through much worse.

I'm an attractive older woman who saw Dr. Conley for a consult only. My misgivings about having a colonoscopy were received in an understanding manner, and he suggested an alternate test. However, he made several remarks during the visit, comparing my physique to a "plough woman" and remarking on my strong legs. I'm 5'6", and not overweight, but I'm not petite. Inappropriate, rude, and irrelevant comments. Creepy. Won't go back.

Happy to find a doctor who cares

I am writing this on behalf of my husband, he saw Dr Conley for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Dr Conley did not baby him. He is obese, Dr Conley said lose weight. He eats the wrong foods, Dr Conley recommended a healthy diet plan and offered to refer him to a dietician. After an EGD and Colonoscopy and for the first time being on the correct medication he is on the mend. I know people always find time to complain but rarely take the time to compliment. I think Dr. Conley is a great doctor.

It's his way or the highway. I literally got a 2ND opinion from one of the top GI's in the country and Dr Conley yelled at him for not insisting I need surgery. Needless to say, I trusted the top GI, who also helped find me a new, local GI for further treatment. I'm one of the lucky ones who was brave enough to get not only a 2nd opinion, but also a better one. That 2nd opinion has helped keep Me and my insides intact and while things aren't perfect, I'm doing much better than I did under the care of Dr Conley. He literally let me bleed for 3 years and acted as though it wasn't a big deal.. how is that not a big deal? Anyway, be careful when choosing your physician and do some research. I would have never chosen him as my Dr., I was referred to his partner and ended up with him.

I saw Dr. Conley and was very impressed with his bedside manner right away. He was not my first gi. I had been through the ringer with another doc and Dr Conley was honest. He said I don't know whats wrong right now but together we will figure it out. Turns out I have Celiacs disease. Thank you Dr Conley for your help.
Arrogant and behind the times

Do not waste your time seeing Dr. Conley. I went to see him as I kept having ongoing diarrhea. He told me I was a bit overweight; I am 5'7" and weighed 136 when I saw him (according to my BMI I am in perfect range). He was arrogant and did not listen to anything I said. His demeanor was creepy at times, like he was leering at me; it was uncomfortable. He scheduled me to do a lactose intolerance test. Problem was, when I returned the following day after drinking the pint of whole milk as I was told to do, the nurses had no idea how to administer the test. They told me the nurse who always did the test just recently quit but they would try to "figure out" how to work the device. Even though they had no clue what they were doing, Dr. Conley declared I was not lactose intolerant and shewed me out the door. I will never see this doctor again nor would I ever recommend anyone to see him.

Dr Conley and his staff saved me. When I went to Dr Conley I was very sick. He and his staff took care of me. It was nice that they all were so concerned. Now I am on the mend and I recommend Dr Conley to all my friends.
Love Dr Conley

I had the opportunity to see Dr Conley recently and was very happy with my visit. Not only did he spend time with me discussing my problems but he made sure I understood what he was saying. He didn't try to use big words to intimidate me or make me feel dumb. He wanted to do an endoscopy on me right away and walked right up front with me and made sure I got worked in himself.

Dr. Conley was one of the only Doctors I saw with recent health problems that actually sat down and spend considerable time with me. He listened to me and reviewed all my records from other doctors. This was the first time a doctor had done that. I will continue my care with him as I feel he is very caring and through.
