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!

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...Read More
