in Summersville, KY |
Dr. Dimar is amazing!! I am 37 years old now. He did my spinal fusion when I was 16. He always takes the time to listen to my problems and ask about my family. He does a thorough examination every time I go. I went into surgery with partial paralysis. (My spine looked like a bomb went off in my back.) I currently have back, hip, and leg pain, but by the grace of God I am walking. Thank you Dr. Dimar for all that you do. You are the best!!

I have seen Dr. Dimar on 3 occasions and every time he was rude and didn't bother to take the time to listen to me or answer my questions. He is cold, standoffish, and talks down to his patients. If I could give him a negative score, I would! I have had 2 other doctors read my MRI's now, and both found things he missed as he simply dismissed my pain. I will never step foot in his office again!

If i could give a no star thats what he would get. I found him to be to busy to talk to his patients. He was rude, and only gives a new patient 15 minutes. In that 15 min he will look at your mri or xrays, and do a neurological exam and will walk out and send in a nurse to finish up with you. I was just fed up with him so i actually decided to get a second opinion and drove to nashville tn., where i was told what was really wrong with my back the doctor, basically said this guy is a quack.
