Phoenix, AZ |
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.

He's the best doctor ever!!!

If you want a highly educated, skilled, and caring Physcian. Sometimes tough love is what you need.
in Gilbert, AZ |
Very rude! Terrible bedside manner. His answer to all of my questions was well, you just had surgery! He didn't even listen to me. I told him he wasn't very nice. He left the room, came back with my prescription, handed it to me and as he walked away he said, have a nice life! I was appalled!
