Patient Comments (2)
Asheville, NC |
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.
in Bakersville, NC |
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.
