Dr Dempster is very knowledgeable and I respect his medical advice. I just felt rushed and didn't get to get through all the items on my list.

We felt Dr. Dempster had read my husband's file with care. He explained possible neurological interactions with Amyloydosis. Were I to have neurological issues, I would seek his care. He is clearly whip smart, well informed,, kind And concerned. Having sat in on a slew of visits with my husband in the last decade, Dr. Dempster Stands out. We are grateful for his care.

I requested a consultation/second opinion from Dr. Dempster. I'm grateful he honored that request! He was able to diagnosis the cause of ataxia and vision issues I've had for 7+ years after coming through past history and tests.

Dr. Dempster was friendly, but seemed dismissive and didn't really listen to my concerns. He also claimed that my medical history (stroke) was false and that the team of doctors that diagnosed my condition was incorrect. He attributed my symptoms to nothing more than a migraine and would not listen to my concerns about how in the past my severe headaches have been linked to conditioned that were diagnosed including pericarditis, effusion, and then tamponade. As indicated Dr. Dempster was friendly but seemed to have all of the answers, before asking questions or even bothering to listen to myself or the other health care representative (I am part of a research study) that was in the room. I only saw Dr. Dempster as part of a research study, but will not be seeking help from him in the future.

The doctor listened to my concerns. When he wanted an EEG at hospital and I wanted to do at home, he agreed with at home. I hope at home. My seizures are at home and home I can move around easily.

Dr Dempster treats me with utmost courtesy and respect, and he's always friendly and concerned. I feel as though I am being treated like a member of the "Legacy Family" and I find that quite comforting. I always know that he cares.

We see each other only once a year, and is good due to my health condition. We still have a doctor-patient relationship, and that's great. Thank you Dr. Dempster. STAY SAFE and be well.

Dr Dempster was very thorough and very nice. He took a lot of time to talk with me, explain things to me, and listen to what I had to say. He knew my medical history very well. I feel very grateful to have gotten him as my neurologist.
