When Dr. Empey sees a woman in clinic, he wants her to feel at ease with her issues, comfortable in her care and confident in her treatment plan. Medicine and health care are a team effort and Dr. Empey wants all his patients to know and feel that they are the most important part of that team. He says he is amazed every day at the strength and power of the patients he sees and the varied roles they play in their families, workplaces and communities. Dr. Empey wants to do whatever he can to help each person access the resources she has in herself by building knowledge and confidence through partnership.

He wants to help women through those issues and wants to encourage all his patients to be healthy in their daily lives, to be screened for potential health issues, encouraged to live a healthy lifestyle and to know that they a powerful.
"There is no where I would rather be at 3am than a delivery of a brand new life into this world. I believe I have a humbling and wonderful opportunity to help women in some of their most amazing moments in their lives," says Empey.
