On the first visit, he explained the procedure clearly, also the possibly risks. He is very easy to talk to and takes the time to answer any questions. Subsequent visits were very much the same. Very satisfied with the outcome.

Dr. Dement has been my doctor since 2014. I had total knee surgery on my right knee in April 2014 and in June 2015 I had total knee surgery on my left knee. My knee surgeries and recoveries were excellent. At present I receive injections in both shoulders for arthritis and bursitis. I have complete faith and trust in Dr. Dement for the treatment he has given and continues to give and would not want anyone else as my doctor. I would recommend him to everyone who may need his care.

Dr. Dement replaced my left knee on March 20, 2018. My surgery and recovery both went extremely well. I had very minimal pain and was walking without a cane in less than two weeks. When meeting with Dr. Dement, he is always cordial and outgoing. His staff at Asheville Orthopedic Associates is outstanding. I can recommend Dr. Dement without reservation.

In my experience, Dr. Dement listens, explains, and answers questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. Although I will be leaving the area and will not ask him to perform surgery on me, I would not hesitate to do so, as all signs point to competence, thoroughness and kindness.

I found Dr Dement to be a very caring, considerate, patient doctor who treated me as if I were his only patient. I could tell he was very busy but he took time to sit, look at me and listen to me. I have had experiences with doctors who would rush in, hardly make eye contact, and after they rushed out, I could hardly remember what they had said! Dr Dement stays and explains things throughly so that you understand what is going to happen and why. His staff is also excellent and caring.
