He communicates well, answers all my questions and did a great with my two surgeries.

This doctor seemed alright until he offered to get wax out of my left ear without any explanation that there will be a bill for it. Got surprised with $184 bill for one minute of his time for something I did not ask for. I was there for my throat, not my ear.

My daughter had problems with her adenoids and he did a great job with handling her surgery and was very one on one with explaining all aspects. Didn't feel like a number.

I met Dr. Deem through my HMO to evaluate a sinus condition I've had my entire life. We discussed options, but unlike other Doctors there wasn't a rush to do surgery for the condition. We tried several options that were the least invasive. These didn't achieve the results we both hoped for. Once established that surgery looked to be the best option we has multiple discussions on the procedures to the point I felt like I knew exactly what he was going to do. This inspired great confidence
