I have been going to Dr Empey and his team for several years. During this time his practice has grown and he has been able to keep up by adding another MD and a number of Physician Assistants and a Nurse Practitioner and Medical Assistants. Normally an appointment to see him is fairly quickly done. Dr Empey's medical skills are very good, and he and everyone there has good people skills too and they care.
