What People Say About Dr. Clifford Hepper, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Hepper has performed 2 complicated surgeries on my hand. Both times he explained what the problem was, backed it up with diagnostic xrays (which he showed me to point out what & where the problems were) and patiently answered my questions. When I called the office with additional questions or concerns, my calls were addressed immediately when possible & within a reasonable time if he wasn’t immediately available. He often returned my calls himself and he personally followed up with a call a day or two after each surgery. I have never worked with a more patient, pleasant and kind medical group. I can’t say enough good about his 2 assistants and the care and support I received from that group. I believe Dr. Hepper to be a skilled surgeon. The outcome from the first was very good & I’m only a couple weeks post-op from the 2nd. The incisions were significant and I’m amazed there is so little scarring. Every case is different but I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Hepper

Dr. Hepper was very thorough during his consultation with my 11 year old daughter who fractured her wrist when wiping out on her bike. He answered all of our questions and was very accommodating and made my daughter feel comfortable.

Dr Hepper took care of my mom two years ago so when I needed advice for myself there was no question who I wanted to see! Dr Hepper and his staff were pleasant and professional. They made me feel like I was the only patient they had to see and answered all my questions clearly. I believe we are fortunate to have Dr Hepper in RVA

This is the absolute nicest and most friendly office I have ever been to. I will always recommend them from now I! I took my 9 year old there. They are so sweet and understanding. I was truly surprised to have such exceptional service. The staff and Dr. Hepper were wonderful!

First appointment was OK. Got injections in both wrists for carpal tunnel. Rt hand injection went well. Lt hand injection was extremely painful. Even asked him to stop the injection because it hurt so bad. By the following Monday I could not fully extend my thumb. Went back to show him. Worst appt with a Dr. EVER! Nothing was accomplished- argued over things I was not even there about. Will NOT be going back. And I recommend you don't either.

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!
