Dr. Dematos completely botched my surgery. I had what was supposed to be a simple cyst removal, but resulted in three months of wound care to deal with an incision that came open. The incision was open and bleeding for nearly a week because his medical assistant refused to move my appointment up, despite my explaining that something was most definitely wrong. Dr. Dematos tried to blame it on me, saying that I must have gone swimming or something to cause that to happen. Sorry, no, I don't think many people go swimming with a gaping, bleeding hole in their armpit. He then said it was a risk I took in having the surgery. When I told him I would have appreciated being informed of this possibility, and of being taken seriously when I called to say something was wrong, his reply was, "things happen." He then stormed out of the room. I will NEVER have another procedure done by him.

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.

Hendersonville , NC – Oct 27, 2018
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!
