The best of the best. From Portland to SLC. We would not take our family members to see anyone else for a foot and ankle injury. Thanks for everything Dr Kemp Gabe and Toni Albert
in Eagle, ID |
Today I had my first appointment with Dr. Kemp & and his PA, Rich. Starting with the registration staff, everyone was exceptionally friendly and professional. Dr. Kemp and Rich took their time and explained everything patiently and thoroughly. They encouraged a conservative approach to my problem. When I inquired about surgical intervention (vs. more conservative management), they were candid about the risks and benefits of surgery. I felt well informed. I had a very positive experience!
Thank your for the positive feedback. I am glad that you had a great experience. Sincerely, Dr. Kemp

He was ok but definitely will not go back and wouldn't recommend him to anyone else. He seemed to not really take time to investigate where my pain was coming from and just told me that I'll probably be fine and to go home. I had to ask for an x ray just to be sure in my brain. Wished I would've gone to someone else who would've spent more time with me and would've explained what was hurting.
I am sorry that you did not have good experience. I hope that your foot is feeling better. If you would like to come back for an X-ray, I would be happy to do it free of charge. Please call the office if you would like to schedule an appointment.

Dr. Kemp relied on his PA for our visit. We thought we were seeing Dr. Kemp.The PA reviewed the X-rays with Dr. Kemp in front of us but Dr.did not even introduce himself so we were wondering who that guy was.We had to ask the PA if that was Kemp. It was a very strange and awkward encounter because I sense that the PA is the personality behind the team. Just meet & greet with a smile Dr. Kemp so it is not awkward for your PA to be put in the position of explaining your presence. 5 stars for PA!
I completely trust my PA. He is very experienced. My clinic schedule is so full that I do rely on my staff to help me see people in a timely manner. Otherwise it would be months before I could see everyone. I hope at least your foot and ankle condition was well cared for. If not, please call the office to reschedule. I would be happy to see you at not charge if you were not completely satisfied with your care the first time.

I would totally recommend Dr.Kemp. after a sad fall I had often a pilon fracture. He is very nice but strait foward with what's going to happen. I like that he is blunt about that there is going to be surgeries later on because I know what's got be expected. After transfering down to Texas Orthopeedics, they kept saying how much you did a grate job. The first time meeting Dr.Kemp took over 45 minutes, but after that he was easey to get in and get out.
I am happy that you are doing well. Good luck in Texas!
I had two appointments, an x-ray and MRI, was scheduled for surgery and never met the doctor. I asked the PA when I would meet the surgeon and the response was when he was signing off on my leg in surgery. My insurance wasn't billed to meet with a PA and never the doctor. In fact, quite the opposite occurred - I was billed as meeting with Dr. Kemp. Perhaps highly recommended, but medicine should not be a factory and that's the kind of clinic he's running.
I am sorry that you did not have a good experience. Although I completely trust my PA, I do understand your desire to meet your surgeon. Our normal protocol is for me to meet all surgical patients in the office. I am not sure why this did not occur, but will investigate it. If you would like to return for an appointment with me, I would be happy to see you at no charge. Sincerely, Dr. Kemp

Very knowledgeable and takes the time to address any concerns
Thank you Darrel.

Dr Kemp was highly recommended to me for my Ankle problems. Dr Kemp is very personable and took time to explain why I was having pain and problems and how surgery would take care of it. Dr Kemp personally called me after my MRI and explained my scan and the process of the Surgery.
Thank you for the nice comments. I am glad that you were satisfied with your care.
