Patient Comments (3)
Dr. Pepose diagnosed from my vision problems that I had a systemic disease....this was after I went to 2 other ophthalmologists who both said I had cataracts but that they weren't ready to be operated on! Dr. Pepose didn't sugercoat his findings but was wonderful about communicating with my internist and orthopedic surgeon.

Have been a patient of Dr. Pepose for over 9 years. He did my Lasik and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. He and his staff are very professional and easy to deal with, and I'd recommend Dr. Pepose to anyone.
in Cuba, MO |
My experience with Dr. Pepose was one of complete frustration. He is an intelligent accomplished surgeon but his ability to communicate with the patient is poor. After having complications with a surgery he had zero compassion about the life altering experience I was having due to his error. It was only after he thought I might be bringing some kind of action against him (which I did not) that he decided to talk to me about what happened and how it could not be resolved. I will not be back.
