The doctor was extremely knowledgeable and took time listening to what issues my daughter was experiencing. He explained everything in an easy to understand manner and even recommended additional literature on my daughter's condition. I was impressed. The entire staff was professional and friendly.

dr. Hemphill could not answer my questions had very little knowledge or my condition though he stated he was local expert. I do notice that he does an awful lot of speaking at drug company dinners so I wonder how much of his time is actually dedicated to his patients. The office staff is demeaning with very little knowledge or professionalism. The wait time was horrendous not only in the waiting room but once you got back to an examining room

I trust Dr. Hemphill's medical decisions, he was extremely helpful in answering all the questions I had. I did not have to wait any longer than usual at other practices. He was able to direct me along the right path for treatment. I never had to worry about being mistreated or lost in the system.
