Dr Jepson is great. Straight forward and not in a hurry or pressuring for surgery.

I had my total right hip replacement surgery on 4/19/18 I was nervous but got through it! Dr. Jepson assured me that I will be fine I woke and started walking the same day after the surgery! After a week I’m already at a pain management of 1 which is awesome and I’m up walking less with my walker...more

Dr Jepson is skilled,professional, and very warm and friendly. This is a great combination for a doctor. He was attentive and caring at all the meetings (pre op surgery and post op). My surgery was a great success. I recommend him without any reservations.

He is very kind and attentive. Respects your opinion on what you are experiencing and is very conservative. Easy to talk to a people person. I would highly recommend him.??

I find Dr. Jepson to be very good. I would send any friend to him with hip, knee. He fixed my wife's knee and is now about to fix mine. He is great.
