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%.

Very responsive to patients complaints in determining problem. Once diagnosed was prompt in taking care of the problem. Updated family immediately on results, even though surgery was done at night family did not having to a wait until the next day. Dr Pepe explained everything and did not rush family with answers to their questions. Follow up appointment was just as thorough. I would not hesitate to refer him to family and friends.

I was immediately put at ease with genuine interest and compassion. His nursing staff is extraordinary also. I'm a tough investigator and critic when choosing doctors and I can only give Dr. Pepe a top notch rating! My thanks to all associated with his practice!
