Dr. Demnecki did my gallbladder surgery in 2018 and recently bi-lateral hernia repair. She is a wonderful surgeon and I highly recommend her for general surgery.

Dr. Demnicki saved my wife’s life. We were in the ER at CCH and they determined my wife had a hole in her colon. Dr. Demnicki took her to surgery and saved her life. She is compassionate, caring and an amazing surgeon!

Would not recommend. She is abrasive with no bedside manner. Very condescending and was dismissive of my concerns. I noticed that the reviews that say how kind, caring and wonderful she is are older, she has clearly become cynical and perhaps burned out because those words do NOT describe the surgeon who treated me.

She did not care to listen to or address any of my concerns while I was in the hospital. She did the same at my follow up. It was obvious she had no interest in my situation and did not care about the unusual symptoms I have been feeling. As a result I am now back in the hospital and the doctor seeing me now said this stay could have been avoided if the issue was addressed in a timely manner. She seems very self centered and does not care to deal with patient concerns.

West Chester, PA – Aug 02, 2017
After the hospital made a number of very awkward and ill timed decisions on my care, I finally saw Pam Demnicki for "emergency" surgery on Monday at 4pm, almost a week after checking me in and barely remediating my symptoms. By Monday at 9pm, my pain was easily in half and I had a solid understanding of the next steps and actions. She and her partner Steve were the only helpful - and informed physicians in my entire CCH stay.

cristene gonzalez-wertz in Kennett Square, PA – Jun 13, 2017
I found Dr. Demnicki to be very pleasant, kind, and caring. She took her time when she explained my problem, and what she'd do to fix it. I didn't feel like a "number," you know how some doctor's barely let you get the chair warm before they're rushing you back out the door. She made me feel very comfortable right away. She answered every question in detail, and that put my mind at ease, and follow-up visits were the same. I highly recommend her to future patients.

After bring admitted and discharged 3x over a period of 3 months it was finally determined that I had a complete bowel obstruction& needed surgery. My drs wanted to send me downtown but having had prior experience with the surgeons at Chester County I asked that they be consulted first. Well I was completed.blessed with Dr demnicki. She single handedly saved my life that day & her care and compassion was above anything I had ever experienced. She was reachable after my DC home. She is top notch

An amazing doctor and incredible surgeon. Dr. Demnicki has the kind of bedside manner you wish all doctors had. She is a rare and special individual who truly cares about her patients and their families. Even if I moved away I would return to the area just to utilize her services for myself and that of my family members.

Betsy in Kennett Square, PA – Mar 13, 2017
After being admitted to ER, I was placed in Dr. Demnicki's (and team) care for a week. She is top-notch, my outcome was excellent, and her connection to patients terrific. She also never hesitated to call upon specialists for additional review/opinions. Very fortunate to have been under such skilled care.

West Chester, PA – Feb 20, 2017
Dr. Demnicki is a doctor that lacks compassion and any bedside manor. She is abrupt and condescending and had little interest in actually helping the patient. She spent zero time reading the file or reviewing any notes before seeing my father. She also read the CAT scan incorrectly. I can understand why she had time on her calendar to see my father on such short notice. We have had good experiences with the other surgeons in this practice, but I would avoid her like the plague.
