Patient Comments (1)

Dr. Kuempel was professional and very thorough. He explained his observations thoroughly and in terms I could understand. I trust his diagnosis. His staff was very friendly and helpful. Our wait time was less than 5 minutes - which is rare for any doctor these days! I will be seeing him again.
