1 to 1 1/2 hours wait for a scheduled appointment. Unnecessary repeated visits for an assessment that can be done in one visit. Not recommended

Following the initial visit, expect to be booked for 5-6 "followup" visits for routine "checks" that can be accomplished in 1 visit. Guess that's how he makes his money through these repeat appointments.

As I write this, I am sitting in Dr. Demco's waiting room 1.5 hours after scheduled appointment time. Last time he was 'only' 1 hr late.

Unconscionable practice of requiring 3 separate visits for a routine assessment to maximize billings - no regard for patients' time nor the challenges faced by the elderly in attending these unnecessary appointments - should be investigated by MSP and the College of Physicians of BC.

Staff are rude and not caring. Multiple appointments that can be combined into one appointment.

This is a long due review from my interaction with Dr Demco back in 2012. I was encourage to write this review because my GF is currently experiencing the same kind of frustration I was a couple of years ago wit Dr Demco. I was suffering/still suffer from dry eye syndrome. Dr Demco took several appointments (which at some point you wonder why he makes You come back so often) and misdiagnosed me antibiotics. At the same time I knew he was disconnected from my case (I was spending more time with the assistant than himself) so I booked an appointment with a great Dr in new Westminster called Dr. Diep .. He was caring, listened to my problem and diagnosed me restasis almost right away!! Fixing a problem I had for years .. If you are feeling the same way I recommend you to find a different ophthalmologist!!

Was refereed to Dr Demco by my own Doctor one year ago. After 3 visits asked if operation would be soon - no answer. By Christmas? for sure! Xmas has come and gone. I was called in because I was told a "special proceedure" would speed up wait time. It turned out that it was an offer to go to private clinic for $900 cash; he just wanted to 'farm out' the job. He could have asked this over the phone, but then no appointment fee. Am now looking for another Doctor who actually wants to DO the SURGERY, instead of making needless appointments. In 2010-2011 he made almost $1.200,000, I assume mostly for office appointments.

My impressions of Dr. Demco's services are characterized by a pleasant manner, redundant tests or retests and endless dithering and procrastination over a course of action. I have received much more active and successful efforts to arrest my glaucoma in the 8 months since I switched doctors than in the preceding 5 years with this doctor. Someone with a more suspicious nature might conclude that the practice priorities here are to maximize the number of billable appointments and tests. I cannot recommend this doctor. He should retire.
