I went to Dr Demers after suffering from back and leg pain for almost a decade. I was scared to see a surgeon, but he made me feel comfortable. He listened to me, answered all my questions completely, he didn't cut me off. When it came to surgery, he showed me the MRI,and went through several surgical options and explained why he thought my surgery was necessary. Office staff was great- especially his nurse practitioner, Jen Minard. Surgery went very well and I feel so much better. I should have seen Dr. Demers years ago.
Listened, asked questions, discussed options, reviewed MRI with me-not just the report. I the end, recommended me NOT to have surgery. Imagine that, a surgeon more concerned about my health than just cutting on me. One of the best and most caring docs I've ever met.
