Fantastic Doctor

I went to Dr. Kemple who works with Patients that have Fibromyalia, Chronic Myofascial Pain and several other problems that go along my condition. I like him because he is great in managing my pain, He is very knowledgable and his staff are the best I have ever worked if, especially the front office people and his assistants. I have been seing him for 5 years and he has been so great with mel. He is a Rheumatologist who sees other people besides but mostly Fibro patients, He does studies and always on the cutting edge of my disease
