Accepting Patients:

"I feel privileged and humbled every day to take care of this wonderful group of patients. It is particularly exciting to share advances in the field with patients, and to give them the opportunity to participate in clinical research."


Dr. Kemmer specializes in caring for patients with breast cancer and head and neck cancer. She particularly enjoys taking care of patients over months or even years and getting to know patients and their families. She also maintains a strong interest and knowledge in general oncology (cancer care) through working with and teaching residents and fellows.

In her spare time, Dr. Kemmer enjoys spending time with her family, including her husband, who is also an oncologist, and her two children. When she does get time to herself, she enjoys reading, spending time with friends and running.
