After trying more than one year we have tried 5 other doctors but totally wastage of money, later i got address of Dr. Richard Demir in Arizona, and he is really a perfect doctor, understand your situation and treat you through practices. Now we are happy that we have completed our family.

Demir Is smart and appears to study and understand medical journals, but that kind of too smart that has ZERO emotional intelligence. His Bedside manner and arrogance is maddening and can cause things to be missed. I just can't sacrifice my comfort for textbook smart. I need a doctor who listens.
