He was treating my dad for a cold for a month. When he wasn't feeling any better and felt so bad he couldn't wait to see DeMint,over the weekend he went to the ER and had to have emergency heart surgery. He came very close to dying. The Adena doctors just shook their heads when told who his Dr. was. Not one I would recomend.

He is not a good Dr. I would not recommend him to anyone. He just got his license back not too long ago. I will not go into detail, but it would be in your best interest to stay away fom him.

Great to go to for the common cold, but not someone to go to for anything remotely serious. I used to go to him for bad colds or poison ivy when I had no insurance back in the day. my grandpa messed around with a heart condition with DeMint & died from not getting the proper care.
My fiance has no insurance & couldn't afford the outrageousness of seeing an adena dr...went to the urgent care in circleville beside the car wash on north court & they were wonderful plus cheap (40.00). I highly recommend them if you're looking for decent basic care on the cheap.

I remember seeing that in the Gazette. He has had an ad in the Gazette recently about offering to help people get off of marijuana. I find it interesting considering he was a user himself not long ago.

Check out Family Healthcare on Western Ave.. they operate on a sliding scale fee and you might qualify for that depending on your income.

Also, if you don't have insurance, you might be able to go to the Hope Clinic. It is operated in the Ross County Service Center on Monday evenings. Good luck to you.

One more thing no one covered. He basically runs a pill mill/recovery center and gets people hooked on Suboxone, which is a drug that helps a person stay off of pills. The thing is, the people that want help are mixed with the junkies that need pills. As long as he gets his $$$, he'll prescribe it. And that speech impediment is to die for. If anyone ever crosses paths with him, ask him to say independence, lol! It'll make you giggle!

Dr. Demint does prescribe suboxone for opioid addiction. But, he requires all the patients to go to drug counceling, go to AA or NA meetings, get a sponsor and work the twelve steps. He performs random drug tests and pill counts. He discharges patients who don't comply. Does that sound like a pill mill? I think not. Most likely Sheesh was a patient he discharged for not following the rules.

I am a patient at dr.demints. I went to him bc he is cheap and I thought too he was a good dr and cared abt my sobriety but when he lost his license this last time .he knew he want legally allowed to write my script.he did anyways and knowing took my money knowing I couldn't get it filled.he did not offer me my money back and when I asked what to do about my meds I was told to buy them off the streets.i know things happen that out of peoples control but he took my money and then shut down his office and wouldn't return calls.i couldn't even get my medical records.i don't know how many laws he broke in that time frame of his shut down .yes I still go to him bc he is cheap and for the record he doesn't check to make sure you are really doing any of the things he tells you to do .they don't even monitor or watch you take your drug test . If I could find a closer doctor to me I would def go .I'm not an ex patient I still go every two weeks just thought people should know what's really going on

Heart problems often feel like chest colds, DON'T go cheap. That is what he told my dad he had, see earlier post. I have a friend, only mid 40's, that recently had to have a stint put in his heart who thought he had a chest cold. Check out Western Ave. Have a good doc check you out. Soon.:)

Good guess, I was in fact a patient, but not for opioids. I knew this because he is a close friend of the family. Sure, he has a system for addicts who wants to remain in the program, but it isn't him that enforces it. It goes much higher and he only carries out the procedure so he won't get in trouble. You really do know your stuff "the truth". Anyway, any good doc knows that when administering suboxone to a patient, it should only be given to them for 1-2 weeks so the meds won't develop[ a tolerance. Suboxone is supposedly only to be used for the initial withdrawal. He, as long as the money flows, keeps his patience on the program for years. Great doc eh? quack quack quack!

He lost everything over a drug bust at his house.. And he made me pay up front and billed my insurance and kept that to.. So he did take care of the problem at hand.. Kept my $$ from the insurance .. So he ripped me off

Where is he located at, phone number? The only number I can find must be old because when I called today to set up an appointment for a physical it said it was disconnected
