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...more

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...more

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...more
