Dr. DeMore is an excellent surgeon and took time to listen and explain the procedure to me. Very compassionate.

I had an absolutely horrible experience with this doctor. She performed a surgical procedure, without explaining in detail how the outcome will turn out. The surgery was very poorly performed, and left a huge scar that I will have for life. Best advice, find another doctor.

Dr. Demore was my surgeon at UNC Chapel Hill, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2013. She was a great doctor and very encouraging and sympathetic in conversation with patient. I highly recommend Dr. Demore to anyone looking for an outstanding doctor.
