What People Say About Dr. Jeffrey Esper, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Esper is arrogant, belittling and ignorant; three things a doctor should never be. Refuses to discuss treatments that are medically proven to work if he does not "believe" in them. Refuses to read accredited articles provided by patient to show the correlation between treatment and improvement of symptoms. He has no concern for the well being of his patients as long as he is getting paid. Even seen talking down to his own staff in front of patients.

When Dr. Esper was my neurologist, I began to experience severe symptoms of Depakote toxicity. I had lost my ability to read, write remember, drive, and work. Between Dr. Esper and his PA. they kept adding more and more medicine. He still never figured out what was wrong all I knew was i didn't feel good. I was in a walking coma. I was finally released to Dr. Mayagloue. He identified the problem immediately and sent me to a seizure unit in Pittsburgh. I learned I almost died.

Due to moving and 2 emergency surgeries with our family dog, all in the past 2 month time period, I had to resched a couple appts, and unfortunately missed my appt this past Monday (while pet was in surgery). In trying to sched new appt, & attempting to explain the chaotic nature of my life in past 60 days, staff spoke with Dr Esper, who is now dropping me from the practice. I understand the importance of time, but the lack of compassion here is astounding. Thx for kicking me when I'm down
