in Alexandria, VA |
GRADE: F++++++ It's been hard trying to locate a reliable and caring rheumatologist in the Northern Virginia area. After seeing Dr. Kempf, it has worsen my trust issues with doctors. He exercises no empathy! Dr. Kempf is super dry, text book only personality, and has no concern for the patient on hand. I had lab work done and his office never called to follow up. So I gave them a call-- it lead to nowhere.
Fairfax, VA |
No bedside manner. Has been consistently rude for four visits (and will only renew my prescription if I see him so have to go back one more time) so after this next one, I am seeking a new Rheumatologist. Also, I have made most of the recommendations that have helped --by MYSELF and then I share that word with him--and that's when we finally get a result that works....even for prescriptions. He's also threatened to walk out of the room on me because I questioned his unprofessional content/words

I am seeing him in conjunction with my ophthalmologist. He is also working with my doctors at NIH. He is always interested in my progress. I never feel rushed and I find his demeanor kind and considerate. He has a sense of humor. I feel like he cares about my progress and treatment.

Never this guy. Period.

Dr Kempf is fantastic! He listens to me and I never feel that he rushes me out the door. Treatment options are great. I would recommend him without hesitation.

On time. No problem with appointments. Listens. Drills down to the real issues.

Short waiting time, nice and helpful staff. Dr Kempf listens to what you have to say and is very careful not to hurt you while diagnosing you. Highly recommend him.

Is always running late, lacks bedside manner, makes you feel rushed in appointments
