I have had two hand surgeries and she has treated various problems for my hands in-between. She is respectful, listens to you, and gives viable suggestions for how to problem solve your issue. Both hand surgeries were successful and without incident. She answers your questions via mychart in a timely manner. I will definitely keep her as my hand doctor, and would recommend her to anyone.

I'm a new patient of Dr. Triepel, I have seen her 3 times since March 2018. She has seen me on time & listened to everything I have to say. Ordered test that she felt was needed for my care & explained why the test she was ordering. The staff was very professional & very helpful. I recommend Dr. Triepel.
