Dr. Kemper subspecializes in Otology and Neurotology.  After more than ten years of solo practice, Dr. Kemper joined Austin ENT Clinic in April of 2011.


As a college undergraduate, Dr. Kemper attended Davidson College, in North Carolina for one year.  Homesick for Texas, he returned to Austin and graduated, in 1985, with Honors from the University of Texas with a degree in Biology.  He completed his medical school and his Otolaryngology residency at The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.

Dr. Kemper completed his Board Certification in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, in 1995.  After practicing for two years in general otolaryngology, his interest in ear surgery led him to pursue a fellowship in Otology and Neurotology.  He left Austin for one year to study at the Otology Group under the guidance of Michael E. Glasscock, III, MD and Wes Kreuger, MD.

Since 1998, Dr. Kemper has concentrated exclusively on diseases of the ear and skull base, in patients from infancy through adulthood.  His broad experience in managing hearing and balance disorders includes chronic ear disease/infection, management of vertigo and Meniere’s syndrome, tumors of the ear and brainstem as well as cochlear implantation and other hearing implants.  Dr. Kemper and his experienced audiologists allow patients to optimize their hearing through multiple modalities, including the implantation and programming of 50-60 cochlear implants per year.  Dr. Kemper and his staff take the time with patients to fully understand and optimally treat the most complicated of hearing and balance disorders.


Dr. Kemper and his wife have four children.  Their active family enjoys playing sports, the outdoors and mission trips.
