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.

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.
