rude, Rude, RUDE! Instead of ease to patients mind, left the office feeling belittled and abused. He asked 10 minutes of personnel questions, not related to injury, with accusations to the last 5 minutes of exam. I'm praying that his diagnosis was correct but due to his horrible bed side manner I left there very unsure.
He is awful; rude, obnoxious, arrogant, and like someone else said, rageful. I was also told that he accepted my insurance but he didn't and I ended up paying a huge amount of money for what was basically a waste of my time. I don't know who is giving him the glowing reviews but that was definitely not the dr or care that I experienced in his office! Worst bedside manner I have ever experienced

I DID SEEK ANOTHER DR AND WAS TOLD I DID NOT NEED SURGERY AND A "NERVE BLOCK AND PHYSICAL THERAPY HAS CORRECTED MY BACK PAIN!!!!!!!!
Dr. Dembner explains his diagnosis thoroughly in terms you can understand and outlines all options. He is always accessible..no matter where he is at. He corrected my herniated disks taking me from a wheel chair condition to walking pain free next day after surgery. He is a no nonsense,take charge doctor to patients and staff with great results. TOP DOC IN MY BOOK!
Dr. Dembner is the bomb. After reading the negative reviews about his insurance contraacting, I am forced to say to those people, did you not read his paperwork? He only is able to provide the services he does because of his non-contracted status. If you want K-Mart medicine, go see someone else. Dr. Dembner provides the best care and is the only neurosurgeon at Hoag Hospital with the independence to treat you right.
