Patient Comments (1)

I can not recommend Dr. Demar because he was not thorough in his examination of me. He did a very quick body check and missed a suspicious mark. This led to a very involved medical procedure later on. If he caught this earlier, I would not have the trouble I am having now. Use him at your risk....more
