    Dr.Kemp is extremely dedicated to her job. She is thorough, communicative and actually reads your chart before your appointment.

  • May 04, 2019

    My experience was very good with this provider. It started out with bery good instructions on how to get to OHSU, which is important to me because I live in Salem, and several reminders about the time of the appointment, and the date. And when I arrived I was treated with courtesy, and received help in finding the correct floor and area where I was to have my breast screening. I was ushered to a comfortable dressing area, a place to sit and wait afterwards, and coffee was provided. Then I had the exam, which was done very professionally, and it had just an overall good impression on me.
