This is the worst office I have ever had to deal it. The staff is rude and answers the phone with “hello”. This is not a personal line, this is a professional office. The doctor is also rude and unhelpful. I’m not sure if he has any manners at all but he speaks over other people while this is...Read More

I don’t want to make assumptions about the other patients who have left reviews but my care was exemplary. His diagnosis and treatment was the only thing that has provided relief for my lower back pain. He is professional and as also as he’s practicing in this area, I’ll be going to him.

I have seen Dr. Kempf for a number of years and under his care, I have thrived. He got me on a biologics regimen and also helped to connect me with a great orthopedic surgeon to deal with damage done before biologics. He is an excellent physician!

While Dr. Kempf's bedside manner may seem abrupt to some, he's extremely professional and really does care about his patients. And if he spends a few more minutes with you, the next appointment is going to be a little late. Its worth the wait. Thanks for literally saving my life.

Dr. Kempf is the absolute worst doctor I have ever dealt with. He has no bedside manor and shows no empathy. I have no idea how this guy has not been reported to the state medical board. I cancelled my follow up appointment and found someone much better. You have been warned!
