I saw Dr. Kempcke during TCO’s urgent care hours. Dr. Kempcke was fantastic! I had endured rare symptoms while at practice that day and no one really knew what was happening and it was a scary time. Dr. Kempcke was able to perform just a few tests and she instantly knew what was going on and directed me to the further step needed. Dr. Kempcke was very personable and even helped me when I called her the following day with questions and her opinion. I am very lucky that my care started with Dr. Kempcke.

I brought my daughter in yesterday to the Edina walk-in clinic for an injured hand/wrist. It was such a great experience. I appreciate being able to take her there instead of a dirty, influenza infested urgent care. The clinic was clean and the staff was very kind. The x-ray techs were so great with my 4-year-old and got the x-ray done quickly.

I was experiencing a lot of pain in my right knee and could barely walk.  On August 18th, I had an appointment to see Dr. Moser at the Eden Prairie TCO.  When we arrived for our appointment, they were experiencing a power outage and were re-scheduling patients.  The girls at the Eden Prairie TCO suggested that I go to the Edina TCO Urgent Care so that I could be seen quickly.  We drove right over and I was able to get in right away. 

Dr. Kempcke saw me and after x-rays and examination, told me that I did not have much cartilage left in my knee and should consider knee replacement sooner rather than later. 

She offered a cortisone injection as a short term measure and I agreed to the cortisone injection.  I was off work for a few days and was able to rest the knee, but able to return to my job as a nurse within a week.  The cortisone injection really helped.

I do plan to have a total knee replacement with TCO in the near future, but I was very appreciative of the treatment I received at the Edina TCO Urgent Care.  I highly recommend them.

Dr. Kempcke was amazing. She had great bed side manner, was realistic and flexible. I appreciated her calling me two days later to check on me and re-evaluate my need for a boot. I am grateful for the personal touch.

I  presented to Edina Orthopedic Urgent Care– desk staff responded quickly & compassionately to me as I hobbled in in severe ankle pain-grabbing a wheelchair .  I was roomed with in minutes quickly triaged & saw Dr. Desiree M. Kempcke.  She quickly assessed my ankle &  ordered X-rays -Sky the tech was gentle & proficient completing the filming.  Dr. Kempcke patiently, quickly,  & gently diagnosed the problem.  They efficiently worked together & I was on my way in little over an hour!  Thank you to Amal who was a good listener, I am sorry I didn’t catch the name of front desk staff but thank you to all the staff!  Even the scribe Devan who helped get to my the car just incredible coordination & patient centered care!  You have a great TEAM there that truly worked together!
