Caring Staff, minimal wait time, Dr. Dempewolf was honest, kind and informative, gave me options and I made the decision that I felt was best for me after he gave his opinions. He did not pressure me or try to do more than should be done- he said it would hurt, tonsillectomy at age 57, and he was right. His staff checked up on me after the procedure several times, helped when I had questions, always kind and patient with me. I would do it again along with use and recommend Dr. Dempewolf. Nothing but praise !

Dr. Dempewolf has performed multiple procedures on my children including ear tube placement and tonsils and adenoid removal. He always explains things thoroughly, takes his time with us in the office, and after surgery is very informative. I am a nurse and have worked with hundreds of providers, he is definitely top notch! I would recommend him to anyone, he is awesome!

The doctor cared more about bilking the insurance for more claims than the patient itself.

My child had chronic ear infections. Dr. Dempewolf inserted tubes in her ears around 6 months. My other child had her tonsils and adenoids removed by him. He is always kind and spends time with his patients. He explains the procedures thoroughly and keeps you informed right after surgery. I would recommend him to anyone!

He gave my husband a sample of a nasal spray that he said was safe enough to use every day of his life. After one dose, my husband started experiencing severe side effects. Upon googling the drug, we found an enormous laundry list of side effects, none of which we were told of. When I called the office to speak with him (and said that is was an emergency) - I was told he wasn't available because he was seeing patients. I called a 2nd time - same thing. Terrible doctor - beware.
