Very understanding, showed compassion and concerned for patience well being.
in Pompano beach |
Dr. Kempton performed all 10 of my ankle surgeries while he was still in Florida just before he relocated! By far the best and I would highly recommend him!
in Greenwood, IN |
I have loved having Dr. Kempton as my surgeon and my doctor. I would highly recommend all of my friends who have orthopedic issues to him. I suffered a complicated fracture due to a car accident, and he has helped me every step of the way with recovery. He has great bedside manor, as well as makes you feel comforted. Highly recommended.
Muncie, IN |
He gave conflicting aftercare instructions and omitted aftercare instructions!! Excessive wait time. Over 2 hours wait time in waiting and exam rooms.
