I’m a long-time patient at this practice, but this is my first experience with Dr. Hepper. I saw the other comment about him being on time, and I certainly forgive doctors for getting off schedule because it happens (my GP and I can talk politics for half an hour sometimes). He was on schedule. I needed a Cortisone injection for an injury, and he described what was to come truthfully & calmly. No way I can call it fun, but he did the procedure efficiently and well from what I can tell. There just weren’t any problems for me with the experience; it was in line with his credentials and experience that I noted on this site.

Dr. Hepper is a kind, compassionate and patient doctor. He takes time to listen and answer questions. He also understands that the cortisone shot in the palm is a tough one and he doesn't lose his patience when you jerk from it!!

Prompt, knowledgeable, and friendly from initial staff greeting at door (COVID-19 screening), through sign-in, and visit with Dr Hepper who provided diagnosis and supporting literature. I was in and out in less than 15 minutes.

Dr. Hepper was incredibly unprofessional and rude to me, to the point where I literally ran out of the office mid-appointment in tears. He and his nursing staff were rude and accused me of coming into the office while contaminated with COVID-19, which was blatantly false as I was outside the 14 day incubation period (I had been in Italy 3 weeks prior), was asymptomatic, and had been cleared to go about my normal life by another doctor. I have never felt so disrespected while in a medical setting. It is shameful that a medical professional would be willing to spread such fear and panic in a situation that did not warrant that reaction in the least. I ended up leaving before I got the treatment I needed because he made me feel so uncomfortable. I do not recommend seeing this doctor under any circumstances.

I had swelling and pain in my wrist. He did an xray and injected the joint with cortisone. It is better after 24 hours! I am so pleased.

Couldn’t have gone any better. Everyone I dealt with were great. Barbara RN was a sweet as can be. Dr Hepper was very knowledgeable and had my hand feeling examined and my worries gone. We discussed my X-rays and what was causing the pain. Did what Dr Hepper suggested and it has been 24 hours and it feels 100 times better. Couldn’t have been more impressed.

Easy modern check in, I really like and appreciate Dr. Hepper, have only had to see him twice in 5 years for different hand issues due to aging, both times were very beneficial and, was fixed up right in the office. Perfect.

Dr Hepper provided knowledgeable and compassionate care in diagnosing and treating my elbow pain. He clearly explained his diagnosis and the treatment recommended. The cortisone injection he gave into my elbow joint was nearly painless. Dr. Hepper was, in addition, extremely efficient in providing care. I arrived early and left the office before my appointment time. I highly recommend Dr. Hepper as a hand surgeon.

After reading the reviews, I thought I was the only one who had an awkward experience with this unprofessional Dr. It seems to me if you don't need surgery he treats you poorly. He has attitude and does not like you to ask questions. Never have I ever seen a Doctor act like this one. Do not recommend.

Dr. Hepper is the best! I’ve been to him for treatment of both hand and foot issues and have not once been disappointed. He’s extremely knowledgeable and is able to quickly & accurately diagnosis whatever the issue and offer treatment that is spot on.
