First impressions are everything. The lady who answered the phone on 9/24 was very rude. Plus, they don't answer the phone for hours on end, and the voicemail is so generic you don't know whether to leave a message or not to make an appointment. He needs better staff (as others have pointed out), or you need to find another cardiologist. Funny how his line of profession would assist people to not be stressed, yet his office is a primary factor! Look elsewhere!

My primary care physician recommended Dr. Pepper when I developed a heart problem several years ago. I have been very satisfied with Dr. Pepper's care. His analysis is thorough, explanations are clear, and he takes as much time as needed for me to understand. He clearly cares about my health. The office staff have always been courteous and efficient with me.

Dr. Pepper was on call the night my Mom needed an emergency pacemaker. We certainly were blessed to find him and he has been her only cardiologist since 2007. He always takes time to hear our concerns and answer our questions. Mom has just had her 96th birthday and his care is a large part of her long life.

Dr.Pepper is among the most respected of all the physicians I have ever been given care for my heart's well-being. His professional,and caring approach to treatment is unimpeachable. Futthermore, his staff exudes and mirrors those same attributes. Finnally, and of some importance, appointments are maintained in an exceptionaly accurate and timely manner, seldomly exceeding 15 minute delays. This demonstrates a commitment of respect to his patients. I recommend his office always to those in nee

Had surgery for shoulder scheduled. Only needed clearance from Dr. Peppers office. Notified his staff in person two weeks prior to surgery that I need clearance for surgery. His staff delayed until last Friday before actual surgery on Monday to have test done. Test done and finished by 9AM and by 5PM the results had not been called into hospital staff so Monday’s surgery delayed. Staff is terrible.
