Dr Dempster had especially good "bedside manner" during this visit which is the only area I think he can ever improve in. (Double compliment, not a complaint)

Dr. Dempster had all of my records from my previous doctor, and more importantly, had gone over them and had several concerns. He explained how my current medications were effecting my other medical conditions, and offered a plan to change to medications with fewer side effects. Very pleased with my visit.

It would be more beneficial if the provider was allowed more time with the patient (me). Got the sense that we were in a hurry.

This was a routine visit for my Parkinsons, and I actually find myself looking forward to my visit with Dr. Dempster. Thanks to his recommendations and my following his advice, I have experienced great success in combating the onset of Parkinsons symptoms.

I think what was missing is the look into my history and the prescription history. I feel like I'm just stuck back on the treadmill with a wait and see option.

Dr. Dempster took lots of time to listen to me and explain his diagnosis. He was familiar with my medical records/previous doctor's notes and he was helpful with recommending a new GP since mine just retired.

The first Dr to actually remember my backstory, medical history, and seem to actually care about his patients. Listened, explained everything amazingly, and very easy going feel to the whole office. Absolutely loved the whole staff. Very friendly and helpful. Homey like feeling - definitely recommending to everyone

I have had multiple appointments with Dr. Dempster with the issue of concentration, and memory because of my epilepsy and medication.Each appointment, Dr. Dempster offers alternative medications but with a dead end response as if I take this medication, this will happen, and if I take that medication, that will happen. As if there is no hope. He doesn't look further into alternatives, such as epilepsy having high correlation with ADHD, or recommending options to better memory and concentration without medication. His only recommendation was exercise. He also didn't even know my age, was fixated on picking apart the patient to find something wrong with me despite my healthy lifestyle and avoiding the only basic question I had asked-how to help my memory and concentration with this disease. I would not recommend him at all.

Confirmation from specialist with good outcome. It took two months for an appointment with this specialist and nearly four months with another; a long time to wait.
