09/07/13 1 1 1 1 Like many pain management dr.s. Dr. Dempsey is unethical in that he gives a friend of mine 180 pain pills a month. He gives him 180 15 mg oxycodone, which he sells and makes over $2000.In the meantime, my friend, Dr. Dempsey's patient is out getting high off of heroin and crack.... using the $ he gets from selling the pills... I am a health care practioner & I find this absolutely egregious. This patient of Dr. Dempsey doesn't make him go to physical therapy. All my "friend" has to do is go to his monthly appt. and get his drugs and poison the street with them. It's because of negligent physicians like Dr. Dempsey that kids are able to get a hold of pain pills and why the epidemic of pill addiction exists today. These are not street drugs. They need a physicians rx in order to be obtained. Keep writing scripts for 180 pills for your patients, Dr. Dempsey and one day someone is going to overdose!!!!!!

14/05/13 4 5 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Dempsey's for at least 15 years. I have taken both my parents to see him and recommended him to at least five friends. Everyone has been very well satisfied with him. In one case he changed a 10 year old diagnosis and that made a huge improvement to my friend's well being. In treating my parents he knew exactly how to deal with the elderly, not an easy task. He is direct, honest, and quite knowledgeable.

19/03/13 4 5 3 4 I strongly disliked Dr.Dempsey.He was very rude and did not seem like he wanted to be there and rushed me through the appointment. When i would try to explain my answers and my reasoning behind my answers he would stop me and say its a yes or no answer. I was very disappointed and I am not going back.  Respond
