I am suprised that there has been no mention that Demming was kicked out of JMCGH for performing unnecessary heart caths. He is simply a bitter old man now trying to strike back. It is pathetic.

What is pathetic is the fact that everyone thinks Dr Korbin is an outstanding person. The man has a reputation of harassing nurses and sleeping with them. He treats other physicians like crap and performs unnecessary tests and procedures on patients. If you come in with a headache, he wants to put in a stint. Once he gets in there he puts in 2 or 3 and then charges insurance/ Medicare for Level 4 or 5 (the highest paying) billing codes. He makes restaurants stay open for him while his private driver waits for him. Shall I go on about Dr Beloved???

I am sorry if I insulted your relative, Dr. Demming but everything you put on here is false and slander from someone jealous of a very successful physician while their own dad got caught doing much of the things listed below.

Nope, he is not related to me. I have been in the city in the medical field for 20+ yrs. I have known Korbin for years. He is a great doctor, but a greedy and unscrupulous one.

Yes they will. Not all doctors are that way but some are corrupt. Sometimes the billers code wrong. But not in this case. Korbin is in the wrong here.

Korban does indeed seem to be quick to place or recommending stints. I have notice that initially this method is stated as needed immediately yet if the patient who ask for more time or seem to be reluctant, "this immediately need" seems to fade away.

people are jealous of korbin because he gets alot of ass and makes alot of money...period the end.

as for the billing...im sure he is creative...kinda like every single doctor out there is....not to mention, the lawyer who typed the lawsuit, the judge who signed it, the senators who made the medicare law, and the tax payer who's money was used to pay the bill...(they probably didn't claim their income on scratch off winnings)

if you wanna do it right...clean sweep all doctors, then shoot all lawyers in the head and most judges too.

I have known eli for many years, he has bragged on the fact he couldn't be caught. He loves doing caths and stints, as close to surgery he will ever get. He does harass female and male nurses and loves sleeping with married women. Well carma is a bitch EK.

F him hit the nail on the head. Should send him back over seas, where he will fit in with his culture. Lots have left but he has wrecked many, many homes. I know of 3 divorces he has caused in the last few years. Maybe he will serve time and bubba will harass him, maybe not i dod hear he was bi.....

Korban jams his office with patients like an assembly line, running from one exam room to the other & often forgetting you're even there. His staff asks the same 50 questions even if you were there the week before & it is insulting to one's intelligence because they assume you don't know what's going on. Even when I assured them that I am a highly educated professional with a margin of knowledge in medicine who takes a proactive stand on my health, they insisted on treating me in a condescending way. He dragged out my diagnosis for 8 months with 5 tests that could have easily been performed closer together. That might not present a problem for someone, but in my case as a cancer survivor with a chance the mass in my heart was malignant, dragging this out was torture, & when I begged him for a script for just a few Valium to help my rising blood pressure & anxiety, he snapped that he "saves lives" & walked out on me. Despite test results being in his possession for several weeks, he doesn't even look at them until you're in front of him, & even then his assistant highlights it for him first. He would change his story about my case from one visit to the other, even when there were no new test results to warrant that. He would cancel tests on his own even though people had rescheduled their lives to take me, & once in the hospital for a test (that he insisted was needed), would suddenly tell me we didn't need to do it & could instead go with another test, usually because he hadn't bothered to check a blood test result from the week before & now he worried it might be a problem to go ahead with the test as scheduled. Some tests that routinely give a patient sedation were not afforded to me, having nothing to do with risks, only his need to get it done quickly because he had patients backed up. One test I was kept awake for had me in excrutiating pain during the entire procedure & resulted in nightmares for several weeks. I refused to take a Stress Test (which has a high incidence of false positives) he routinely gives patients because I felt it was dangerous in my case & demanded a Cardiac CT in its place. He agreed, & it was then we discovered that the blood clot the test found in my heart would mostly probably have come loose during the Stress Test & killed me. When I had questioned one of his nurses why he was so quick to go with a Stress Test when other tests were safer, she confessed that it's because they KNOW insurance will pay for the Stress Test, but would have to get approval first for a different test. He is very cavalier toward patients, not reassuring. On more than one occasion he negated my concern for my health, laughing at me as if I was being a Drama Queen. He is a known womanizer, & it's pretty obvious how some of his staff got their job. One in particular had NO medical training for a Bubble Test I received, & I discovered that AS she was doing this test on me! Trust me there's more, but if anyone continues to see this guy after all this, don't say you weren't warned!

Anyone who doubts the claims of Korban & his penchant to perform Stress Tests, then wisk away the patient via ambulance to the hospital under the guise of "immediate" attention only needs to spend a few days watching his parking lot. Just because "other" doctors are guilty of corruption doesn't give Korban a "pass" on his. Ya gotta start SOMEwhere in the cleanup, & the squeaky wheel gets the oil. As for "jealous" people making false claims against him, I can only imagine that such a post comes from someone who has already sucked on HIS stint!

If you have been in the medical field obviously you have not paid attention. Stint is spelled stent, and Korbin is spelled Korban so you must not know him to well and have not been in the medical field for 20+ yrs. What other lie would you like to tell Insider!!!!
