Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Epling Jr "Being your family's doctor is one of the biggest honors I can think of.  I believe the best way to care for you and your family is to get to know you better, understand your needs and concerns, provide my best advice based on what we really know in medicine and constantly re-evaluate our progress. I believe that technology can help us do this better, and I try to use it to take better care of you without letting it get in the way of our relationship.  I try hard to provide safe, effective, timely, efficient and equitable care centered on you and your family.  I value your feedback - if anything about our care is not meeting your expectations or my goals for your care, please let me know immediately, and I will correct it."

Patient Comments (1)

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Epling. He is very knowledgeable and compassionate healthcare provider. I am saddened that after more than 15 years he is relocating to Virginia, and I will need to try and replace him with a new Primary care physician.
