Ratings for Dr. T. Alan Demco
A complete and utter waste of my time and precious health care dollars! Five separate appointments to check my eyes after a referral from my GP. Final result after many hours of waiting time, travel time and expense, my eyes were just fine, a fact that was confirmed by a Costco optometrist in five minutes. What a waste of our tax dollars.
I won't judge him as a doctor. I think he's a okay doctor, but as a person.... He doesn't respect your time. The doctor was late for every single appointment I had (about 10). I had to wait for about one hour for every appointment sometimes even more (2+ hours). I had to come way too many times to the clinic unnecessarily. What could have been done in just one appointment took 5 or 6 instead. I lost my time and my patience, so I changed doctor.
While yes he has a busy practice and you may wait, also keep in mind that this man is a master of his craft and knows what he's doing. We are talking about your eyes. Dr Demco made sure we understood the details for our daughter and answered all questions and even went above and beyond to consult with others just in case.
Excellent Ophthalmologist. Had a great consult with him a week ago. Very fast and very knowledgeable. Explained my condition and even suggested I have a follow up visit after 6 months if I don't wish to undergo surgery now. Amazing. Shall keep him as my eye specialist.
Can you imagine keeping a 90plus year old waiting for an hour and a half to see this doctor? This coupled with a rude staff who offered that the Doctor double books his appointment so that he doesn't suffer from cancellations (or to squeeze as much money out of a day that he can at the expense of his patients). He finally saw the patient, dilated her pupils, did SOME of the procedures and sent her away before finalizing the exam because he was so busy. Hmmmmm...really? The patient won't be back that's for certain, but I wanted to let you know what goes on in this office for your own sake. To me his way of doing business is wrong, and borders on failing to provide patients with the care to which they are entitled. I will report this to the BC College of Physicians and Surgeons and let them take it up.
