Dr. DeMatos extracted pancreatic cancer that was stage 4. From what I've read and understood about the disease, this cancer is very difficult to deal with, since it tends to grow into the bile ducts and wraps around blood vessels. He got it all out and took VERY good care of me.

Disrespectful, rude, condescending, and acts like he’s above you. Doesn’t treat you like a human being.

I felt blessed to have had such a great surgeon. Dr. Dematos! He and his staff are very professional and friendly! He explained what my surgery would entail and a price breakdown! Surgery is never a "breeze" but Dr. Dematos made the experience less stressful with his calm and assuring manner and personality! I would highly recommend him to family and friends!

He's a caring and funny doctor. Had my gallbladder removed and felt like I was in very good hands. Everyone was wonderful and Dr. Dematos really listens to any concerns you may have.

Wonderful Dr. I had colon surgery and it went great. He and his PA were there for me everyday while I was in the hospital. They really care about their patients.
