I just visited Dr. Pepe today and was most impressed with him. I was diagnosed with a cystic lesion on my appendix. Very upsetting to learn of this, especially with my history, but I already feel very comfortable with Dr. Pepe. I will be adding comments to this review as I work through my surgery, but just wanted to relate my good feelings to start with!

Dr Pepe performed emergency surgery on my brother a year ago. It was done laparoscopically and as my brother said right out of recovery, “Guy’s a genius.” I am so grateful to him. He saved my brother’s life. He is doing great, almost one year later.

Dr. Pepe saw me at Grand Strand Med. Center after I was taken there from the South Strand Emergency Room. He explained I would need surgery and very calmly explained the possible outcome of the surgery and the risks. He was very thorough and answered all my questions. Today, I feel great, thanks to Dr. Pepe and the surgery he performed...a complete success and I would recommend 100%.
