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.
