I was referred to Dr. Hepps as I was diagnosed with GRD and needed an Endoscopic procedure. Dr. Hepps looked at my entire medical history and insisted that I get a stress test first. The stress test showed I had blockage in my LAD (Left Artery Descending). An Angiogram was done and showed 99% blockage. I was told I was going to have a massive heart attack very soon had this not been found. Because Dr. Hepps took the time to look at my history he may have saved my life.

Dr. Hepps' Care Philosophy

I try to communicate with my patients. I strive to explain their medical condition and discuss their treatment options in plain language. Questions are answered. I want no patient to leave the office thinking they were rushed through their visit
