Did surgery for my carpal tunnel syndrome. I have been much better and have no complaints as far as my surgery. Also no complaints on the cortisone shots he delivered. I wish he could fix all my joints!

He took extra care to examine my knee and explain how my night pain could be relieved with simple exercises. The problem that had kept me awake more months was almost gone in several days. Many thanks to Dr. Hepper!

I have seen Dr. Hepper several times - in clinic, the day of my surgery, and post-op. He did an amazing job diagnosing and treating my condition, I am now pain-free for the first time in years! His assistant was also very helpful with my scheduling concerns. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family!

I brought up my concerns about arthritis, based on my extensive
