Dr. Demicco mishandled my health. He put me on methotrexate. It was so strong that I was unable to function properly for five days after each weekly dose. I was on this medicine for three months. My health was not monitored. When I went to my new intern for a check-up my labs showed severe liver problems caused my the methotrexate. He also looked through my file to find the labs that caused the prescription of methotrexate belonged to another person! I spent time getting my health back together.

Dr Demicco is an excellent physician. He takes the time to listen and discuss to your concerns. He doesn't rush through your visit. The best of all is your actually able to see him and every one else. As well as it doesn't take months to get an appointment.

Dr. Demicco is a good doctor but his staff is a problem. Most of the time when I call his office it rings 5 times then disconnects. You can't leave a message unless it's after hours. It's very difficult to get through. Some days I have to call 10 plus times before someone answers. It's impossible to get the office manager to return or take a call. With this extremely poor service and billing issues I cannot recommend.

Dr. Demicco is the best Doctor in the world.. He has the best bedside manners. He has patience,he understands and he totally listens to the patient. I was diagnosed and I have been taken care of by the best Dr. and his Staff is the nest ever. I am so thankful and truly blessed. My body stays in severe pain, fatigue and stress. Ive been hospitalized so many times. Dr. Demicco gets to the bottom of my health issues. And knowing whats going on makes me feel better than not knowing. I have Lupus SLE
