His attitude was confrontational the moment he stepped in the room. His only concern that he hadn’t seen me in 3 yrs. I explained what I’d been dealing with: broken ankle surgery, broken wrist surgery, shingles with complications and COVID over the holidays. (None of these required a visit to Dr Kempke.) Rather than ask me how I was doing post these issues he berated and argued with me for the entire 15 minutes about being behind on routine tests, (ignoring the fact I been dealing with other issues). In last 30 seconds he said “I suppose I should at least listen to your heart and lungs”. I was literally shaking with anger as I walked out of the clinic. For 2 weeks I considered writing him a letter but decided to let it go; until I got the bill for over $500!! I contested the charge but was told “the level of care I received was appropriate”. I will be filing a complaint with the attorney general. If you enjoy arguing and confrontation then Dr Kempke is the doc for you.

I would highly recommend Dr. Kempke to others. He is professional, kind and so easy to talk to. He was great in regards to answering questions and his email responses were fast. I've always been afraid of going to doctors, but after seeing him, I can't imagine being afraid to return. He's wonderful!
