Terrific doctor and team! Had a triple bypass one year ago today. Both Dr. Hemp, his staff, and the Scripps Mercy hospital staff were a fantastic team. One word describes the experience: Professionalism!

Dr. Hemp did my AVR and aorta replacement surgery. Everything from first appointment, to the time when he told me that I can return to my normal activities went great. Besides being a great surgeon, Dr. Hemp took his time to answer all the concerns about surgery and during post-surgery period.
