“I have had the pleasue of working with Dr. Kemmeter for the last four years. As a new nurse, it was refreshing to work with a surgeon who was so patient and kind.”

“One of Dr. Kemmeter’s patients was about to undergo a surgical procedure. As Dr. Kemmeter was about to end his conversation with the patient he kindly asked if he could offer a prayer. After joining hands with the patient and their family Dr. Kemmeter gave a genuine, heartfelt prayer and really demonstrated how much he cares about his patients and the people he works with. The family and I were touched by this act of spiritual and ultimate comfort. I am blessed to work with Dr. Kemmeter and I know my colleagues would say the same.”

Congratulations to Paul Kemmeter, MD!
