    I have already recommended Dr. Nepveu to a friend and my father since having an appointment with her myself. She is no fuss, no muss. Down to business. 100% confident in her diagnosis. Her knowledge and experience is something no other doctor in this area has shown me. I am grateful to have found her. I've seen several doctors for separate issues over the years, and Dr. Nepveu pulls it all together. I waited over an hour for my appointment, and i'd happily wait again.

    She is very knowledgeable about rheumatoid arthritis, is very caring and listens to the patient. There is a long wait in the office but is worthy. Expect to be there for at least 2-3 hours.

    I have been her patient since the very beginning of her practice and she is outstanding and careful. There is impression that you are her only patient. She listens carefully and takes time. That means often a wait, sometimes a long wait. Don't complain...bring a book! she is well worth the wait!! Dr. Kenneth N Parker
