Dr. Tepper finally relieved the chronic pain I suffered with for years. He is an amazing doctor and skilled surgeon. My pain was gone in the recovery room after he replaced a disk in my neck. I am so blessed to have found Dr. Tepper and his team

Dr. Tepper really cares for his patients and I have seen him since 2009. I saw four Orthopedic Doctors before him that were unsatisfactory.
