Patient Comments (105)
What I was most impressed with was the phone call from Dr. Demeter the day of the surgery. What Doctor actually makes these phone calls themselves?? Everyone is personable and professional. Karen is the epitome of an excellent first impression of the office. I will return and suggest everyone to go to this office! Thank you to everyone that I came in contact with...Truly a great experience!
i first came in not knowing what what be final outcome. thought it would just be something routine and would not really change anything and expected a long road to fixing my problem. but i was completly wrong. first off doc and staff was amazing. GREAT people. GREAT attitudes. very nice very professional. they explained everything to me step by step. listen to everything i had to say and answered every question. my results were WAY BETTER then i thought. 200 percent satisfied with my visits.
Dr. Demeter was wonderful at listening and explaining everything. He even called to check in on me each evening after each of my 6 procedures. My legs no longer have the pain in them that I had before my procedures. He answered all of my questions even on a weekend that he was out of town when I had some concerns. He called and checked in to make sure that everything was okay after he had me get my leg checked out. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking treatments on veins.
great Dr and staff
Excellent service, I can tell a huge difference in my legs already, and I am much more confident with my legs. From day one I always felt like Dr. Demeter and all of his staff care, and are always so kind. Every time I called or visited the office, Karen always goes above and beyond to answer my questions and has the best attitude every single time. Thank you all so much!
Dr. Demeter and his staff are all wonderful. This is truly the happiest group of people I have ever encountered in a doctor's office --- or any work environment I have been in. Together they create a very stress-free experience and make you feel more like a friend than a patient.
Dr. Demeter and his staff are top notch. I was very nervous at my initial visit. He and his staff made me feel so comfortable and answered every question I had...and I had a bunch. I would recommend Dr. Demeter and his team to everyone. I only wish I would have done this procedure sooner.
I had a FANTASTIC experience. Mandy was the bestest!
A very positive experience that met all my expectations. Very professional and kind; I have recommended to family, friends, and co-workers.
I had a great experience with Dr. Demeter. He and his staff are kind, caring and knowledgeable. They took time to answer all of my questions and I never felt rushed. I highly recommend Dr. Demeter.
Best staff very friendly
Dr Demeter was very personable, was always on schedule and provided excellent information throughout the entire process.
Very pleased with the whole procedure.
Dr. Demeter and his staff are so kind and personable, and very organized, which I appreciate! I came to this office for sclerotherapy to treat some unsightly veins in my legs. I was very pleased with the thorough exam and the treatment. I can't believe the improvement I've seen! Can't recommend this office enough!
When I first started this process I was unsure of what to expect. From the first day in the office I was greeted with very kind and professional people. They were very good about explaining the procedure and the entire process. After four operations I am finished and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thanks to Dr. Demeter and his staff.
Dr Demeter was great to work with. He has excellent bedside manner and took the time to explain the procedure and answer any questions. His office staff was also very friendly and professional at all times.
Great results for treatment of varicose veins
This was totally a great experience. I learned a lot, and enjoyed talking with the doctor and his staff.
Dr. Demeter is a great doctor...skilled, experienced and well trained. The staff is amazing...friendly, qualified and hospitable. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone needing a vein procedure or general surgeon. The doctor has done several surgeries for me, as well as venous reflux surgery.
very personal and professional and knowledgeable
Everyone was super nice, helpful, friendly and did not rush me with my appointments. I am very pleased with the end result.
every person including the doctor was friendly, informative and expert. every step of process was positive
Great experience answered all my questions great results
The provider did a great job.
I could not ask for better vein care. Several options were explained to me and the experience was much better than expected.
When you enter Dr. Demeters' office you feel like you are in good hands. The entire staff looks professional and conducts themselves in the same manner. They take time to make you feel comfortable and address all of your questions and concerns. I was surprised but very pleased that Dr. Demeter follows up every procedure with a phone call to determine how are feeling and whether you need any additional help from his staff. I would definitely recommend him as a top health care provider.
Very good care and explanation of procedure.
I had surgery for same thing at another surgeons office and this experience was so much more relaxing. Staff is king and knowledgeable.
He is experienced as a surgeon in treating varicose veins, and his support staff is great.
Staff and Dr. Demeter took time to explain every procedure, answered all before and after procedure questions. I was very pleased with the results and the experience.
Easy to talk to. I think he did an excellent job on my legs.
Dr. Demeter explained from the very beginning what I needed done. Then as each different procedure was happening he and his nurse explained and talked to me the entire time. The entire staff from the office receptionist to the doctor were very friendly and welcoming.
Very positive experience and he explained every detail of the procedure. It was nice surprise Dr. Demeter called my Friday night after my procedure to check in on me.
Dr. Joe was excellent. Great sense of humor which was important to me. made me feel very at ease with all the procedures.
The procedure was not painful but the improvement was what I had wanted.
The staff was always friendly and took time to explain things, never felt rushed. It was easy to get scheduled in a timely manner. My veins before made me have very low self confidence and now a stranger would never know I had surgery, the results were great. My mom will be coming here next month and I am confident she will have great experience as well.
Dr Demeter and staff are very caring and provide a great experience from start to finish.
It was a great experience. I was happy to learn that the pain and discoloring could be easily fixed with simple procedures. I liked the way I was informed every step of the way. I ended up also coming back to have dark veins removed on both legs.
Everyone I met with in the office was very helpful and made my experience very good overall. I will definitely be back.
I had a very good experience throughout my entire procedure. Dr. Demeter took the time to explain everything in detail in regards to my surgery. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable also. I feel I received excellent care.
I walk five to nine miles a day without pain. Waking up in the morning is truly joyful for me!
Dr. Demeter and his staff were very personable and I enjoyed coming to this practice to get relief from my venous reflux!
my experience has been fantastic. everyone takes time to meet your needs and concerns. they make you feel like your family.
Dr. Demeter is knowledgeable , professional, and a gentleman. His office reflects his goodness and concern for all his patients. All offices should be run so well.
All the staff as well as Dr. Demeter all kind and caring. Professionally handled my vein issues.
Surgery to close varicose vein. Very easy process and great results.
Professional! Entire staff and Doctor Demeter was Awesome!
Doctor Demeter and his staff are exceptional. They explain all the pros and cons for the procedure and make sure you are very comfortable with your decision. The facility is very patient friendly and does not really feel like a doctors office. They provide water, coffee, and mints to make you feel very at home.
I want to thank Dr. Demeter and his staff for finding my diagnosis and fixing it. They are very helpful with everything. They answered any questions I had. Thank you again.
