Dr. Hempel grew up surrounded by the beautiful horse farms of Lexington, Kentucky. He played high school basketball and remains a lifelong fan of the University of Kentucky Wildcats. He and his wife Sarah have lived in Brookhaven for many years and they are members of the Capital City Club and Peachtree Road United Methodist Church. Their children Sam and Hannah are graduates of The Lovett School and the University of Georgia. Sam is currently pursuing his PhD in Finance at Cornell University and Hannah is a medical student at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.
Dr. Hempel enjoys the opportunity to share the experiences that he has had from raising his own children with his patients and their families. Over the years the Hempel family has hosted foreign exchange students from England, France, and China. Attending YMCA Camp High Harbor was always a summer tradition. Dr. Hempel’s older teen patients love to hear about the study abroad programs that his children attended as they prepare for college life.
For many years Dr. Hempel has enjoyed hosting MD, PA, and PNP students on rotations in our Johns Creek office. He is on volunteer faculty at the Medical College of Georgia, which is now a part of Augusta University. Dr. Hempel and his wife spent several years serving on the University of Georgia Parents Council and they still enjoy trips to visit Athens when the opportunity arises. Dr. Hempel also enjoys travel, photography, and exploring everything that Atlanta’s in-town neighborhoods have to offer, such as the Beltline Trail and Ponce City Market.
