in Long Beach |
I am an RN so I have a working knowledge of what it means to evaluate a physician. Dr. Eppele is one of the best.
in Long Beach, CA |
Dr. Eppele is the most caring, compassionate Dr. I have ever me in my life. She truly cares about you.
in Long Beach, CA |
She is an absolute great doctor. However, her staff is horrid. They rarely call back. They will take up to a week and a half to process a prescription refill. They don't like to answer questions you ask them. What she needs to do is fix her staffing issues.
