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!

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.
