He definitely knows how to smile, but as for diagnosing and or taking care of my medical problem ??! It's been over four years now and I'm still just as miserable as I was at my first visit. When I say I can't breathe, and it feels like something is wrong with my sinuses, and throat still after many tests....You think Dr. Kempiners would do something for me? Instead of just smiling at me,and trying to leave the exam room quickly, to end the visit with another 50.00 copayment in his pocket?
