I came in for appointment about my knee, while I was there I mention to Dr Demuth my shoulder was hurting and started to explain my symptoms to him and he rudely cut me off and stated if I wanted to talk about that he I can make another appointment with him on another day to discuss this. there are better ways to talk to humans but he lacks that trait. He was very rushy with my issues and didn't really take the time to listen to my concerns, I ended up changing offices, its a drive for me to get there but with feeling like the DOCTOR I am seeing actually CARES about my well being!

I just took my 13 yr old grandson to Dr. Demuth for a fractured foot and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. We didn't wait long and he answered every question we asked with patience and detail. I would highly recommend him for anyone who needs a good orthopedic doctor. The staff was very friendly as well. My grandson really liked him and for a teenager that's saying a lot! LOL

50 minutes after scheduled appointment time and no explanation as to why the delay, only was told it could be another 20 minutes. I ended up leaving. No apology, only glares from front desk. Way too much personal conversations going on between employees.. total lack of consideration for a person's time.

2 HOURS TO BE SEEN!! DO NOT GO THERE!! He makes comments Out in the hallway about clients and is so rude. I am truly disgusted with how he acted with my appointment. I will never step foot in his office again. He treats you like you are beneath him.

I am pleased to say that after the horrible experience my husband endured last week with this, ??, he was able to find a great doc! And will be getting a new knee this summer. The xrays showed severe arthritis, worse than the last knee. 40 years of climbing trees, will do that. But dr dumbuth says it wouldn't. I encourage anyone who does end up seeing this clown, get a second opinion. And for anyone thinking about seeing this clown....DON'T!!

If I could choose no stars I would. like others I felt he did not care about me or my problem. From the start of the appt to the end I felt I was wasting his time with my problem. I was told that he doesn't "do back problems" I should look up and experiment with exercises. no need to get professional help. I could go on how unprofessional this visit was. a complaint to my ins was made !

2 HOUR WAIT FOR 7 PATHETIC MINUTES OF YOUR TIME! Stay away from this practice, This Dr. is to busy to be a Dr. that cares, makes patients wait over 2 hours to be seen than has attitude. How dare you tell a patient you are to busy to play on a computer to review films, is this what you have become? It is your job to review films to be a good doctor.

I have been a patient of Dr. Demuth for a few years now. Dr. Demuth is very knowledgeable and informative. He takes time to go over everything with me including the proper way to exercise and stretch. I find his staff very friendly and professional both on the phone and at the office. They always squeeze me in for an appointment when needed. They are helpful and knowledgeable when it comes to insurance. I was very pleased with my experience and would highly recommend this office .

While waiting 2 hours I noticed staff was rude. Upon entering Dr was not apologetic about the delay. Upon making appt they prescribed xrays to be done prior to the appt. Problem is they only did ankles and not my feet. Apparently because the problem is just under my ankle in the subtalar joint the Dr decided to dismiss the fact that I've been in pain for 20 years he acted like i was lying. He even declined to look at another Dr findings from xrays in 2001. He took 5min from his day.

I would not recommend this physician to anybody. He does not care about his patients and is more or less in it for the money in my opinion. His office staff mirror his poor bedside manner, they are rude and unprofessional. Please stay away from this practice.

The nicest way to put it is that he is not a people person. Was told to put on a hospital type gown for an exam, but there was none. I felt like he was talking down to me when I would ask questions. He had such an arrogance about him when I asked questions that I stopped asking questions. I got dressed and left. If I can't feel comfortable speaking to my physician, then there is no reason to continue.

My father was seen after a severe MVA. He has a terrible bedside manner. Dr, Demuth misdiagnosed a foot injury as an ankle sprain and told my father that he could walk out of the hospital. He meanwhile, has not been able to put any pressure on his foot and has walked with a walker. We saw a Medstar Ortho doc who re scanned the foot and diagnosed multiple fractures. Further instructions are non weight bearing and most likely surgery! The wrong initial Dx set us back 2 weeks!!

Been there 4 times now. Three out of the 4 times, they've called and changed the time of my appointment. More surgeries, they said. Also said I can change the day if it doesn't work for me. He's only here 1 day a week, so that won't help. He'd be late next time too. Then when the time comes, I'm there on time but have to usually wait an hour to see him. Will be changing after my next appt tomorrow! Not worth all the aggravation to me. I understand emergencies, but this is constant.

I wouldn't recommend him. Very slow! It took forever to be seen. Finally when we were seen he couldn't find anything wrong with my daughter. Which is fine if he didn't find anything but not how rude he was about it. He said my child was saying she was in pain because I gave her medicine. And because her normal doctor put a wrap on it. Didn't matter that she was wake up screaming in pain for a week before any way of that and still is. He told me being a parent is stressful. We will never be back.

My 89 year old mother fell and fractured her femur. Dr. Demuth did an orif procedure to repair the fracture. He was clear and concise when discussing her diagnosis, the repair, and possible outcomes. After the surgery, he was willing to have her discharged to home rather than sending her to rehab. She successfully rehabbed at home, turned 90 in the meantime, and is currently ambulatory with a mobility aid and some assistance at times. He has been personable and engaged in follow up visits.
