Olney, MD |
Dr. DeMarco was so tuned into everything - I had a plethora of information for him and he took it all in easily and patiently answered my questions with a terrific bedside manner. He was supportive and kind and suggested we look at Xrays together which was really nice! (Other experiences with doctors have been waiting nervously in the exam room until they come back and give you a couple of words where you need to run home and ask Dr. Google LOL). Not so here - Dr. DeMarco went through the Xrays

Thorough and thoughtful; ready to discuss in detail various treatment options; listens for questions, even if they are half-formed. I disputed my diagnosis of osteoporosis with him; he took no offense but explained the basis for the diagnosis in depth. His participation in research puts him at the leading edge of treatments.

Dr. DeMarco is naturally caring and genuine. He has taken the BEST care of me and supports me through all of my life journey. His nonjudgmental attitude allows me to feel safe to share whatever is going on. I have been with him since 2008 and that's where I plan to stay. He goes to the end of earth to make sure his patients have what they need.
I had my first appointment with Dr. DeMarco at 11:15 am they asked me to be there at 10:45 so I did. So far no problems, very nice staff and place. At 11:15 am I was in the room waiting for the doctor... and I waited and waited... At 12:15 pm I decided it was time to go, Doctor DeMarco never came. I drove an hour to be there and another hour back, I deserve respect.
