Dr Dempster is very clear and confident. I appreciate how straightforward he is. If he does not think testing is necessary he will let me know. He is very knowledgeable and kind. I think he has my best interest in mind.

The only complaint I have is when I received a call back from the scheduler. I almost hung-up because I thought it was a junk call. I did not recognize the number and the first words from the person were "how are you?". The second was "so when would you like to come in?" (Or something similar to that question.). The person may have assumed I had the phone number on my phone so I would know that it was from Legacy. But my phone did not recognize the number. The scheduler was very friendly but needs to be cognicent of professionalism.

I think he's extremely smart and knowledgeable about my situation. I did feel rushed and the appointment was primarily about changing medication when I had more information

Doctor was rude and condescending and brushed me off. PA left me in the office for ten minutes after doctor left and I had to ask if It was okay to leave. The only good experience was checking in at the front desk.

I was very satisfied with my consultation with Dr. Dempster even though my referring doctor did not pay attention that his specialty is epilepsy and my concern was nerve damage. My thanks to Dr. Dempster for sticking with me and give me the best care anyway.

The receptionist was the most disrespectful receptionist I've ever encountered in a health care setting.

  Jun 14, 2023
Had answers to my health concerns. With added understanding, I can take better care of myself and relay info more accurately to others (ophthalmologist.)

Dr. Dempster explains things well. He gives me option, but when asked will help make the decision. He is friendly - straightforward.
