    It was my first consultation visit with Dr Kemmer. She was very knowledgeable and explained my diagnosis and treatment plan. She was pleasant and calm in manners.

    Dr Kemmer is a great listener and very supportive. She makes an effort to know me, my health and mental well-being. I appreciate how she is as a health professional.

    Extremely competent and compassionate. Always prepared. "Thinks outloud" to share her rational in developing treatment plan options. I feel that we are partners. I leave inspired to work hard at my self care goals. I traveled a total of 3 hours yesterday to see her. She's worth it.

    It's hard to know to talk like this into a telephone. She was knowledgeable, she was forthcoming, she was articulate in her sentences and description and professional opinions were easy to understand. I'm a fairly sophisticated at the Cimarron, I hate to use that word, but I've been around the block a few times and I've been too many doctors. I thought she was extremely clear. She was encouraging and polite and I had family with me and she was courteous to them. I felt very positive about her. Now, I don't know what I'm supposed to do, punch a... punch a number or something.
