Lowell, MA |
My husband had his first visit with Dr. Dempsey today for a subdural hematoma. Dr. Dempsey was calm, caring and of course knowledgeable. He didn't hesitate to take time with us and answer all our questions.
in Beverly, MA |
My first appointment the wait was over an hour. I had 2 visits with Dr Dempsey and his office shows that he took no notes on either one of my CAT scans.
