Dr. Demir took out my gallbladder in Nov., 2017. While I was in the hospital he visited to ensure that I understood my bloodwork and the procedures that I would be having. He had a very calming demeanor and was very polite and thorough to both myself and my husband. I found him to be timely, efficient, and I highly recommend him based on my experience.

I went to see Dr. Demir for hernia's that were causing me discomfort. He explained my options very well and spent the time answering any questions that I had. He performed the surgery and everything went as planned. Office staff was very friendly.

My husband had a bacterial infection, and was dying. Several other doctors were looking in on him, and just shaking their heads. Dr. Demir walked into the hospital room, surmised the situation, and addressed what options there were.....immediate surgery or death, and nothing guaranteed. He performed the successful surgery and saved his life. He was a ray of sunshine around all those other doctors of doom. We love him.
