Swanton, VT |
She is very committed to you. She goes above and beyond at understanding you the patient. She will not rush her time with you and spends as much time as it takes. She reads charts and labs. She looks at everything when treating you. I would and do recommend her. She is an excellent physcian.

She is careful, listens and has the best possible manner in working with you. She never talks down to you or around you. You have the feeling after your visit that you are her only patient and she is concerned about you, your family and your health. she is often up to an hour late, but if that annoys you it is your fault, knowing in advance, bring a book, walking shoes or your meditation aids. then use the time as a gift.

I was really disappointed with this experience. She spent quite a bit of time with me but she didn't listen to anything I told her. She was too quick to jump to conclusions that turned out to be false and she misdiagnosed me which could have serious consequences when it comes to my future health care.

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.
