Very knowable and cares about the patient and making sure that you understand what is wrong and the course of recovery. Does not rush you right into surgery if he thinks it is not necessary.

I find Dr. Jepsen to be a very caring physician. He is personable and will evaluate honestly. He is an exeptional surgeon. I have been under his knife 3 times, once for a knee replacement and twice for a shoulder replacement. His skills are excellent and my outcomes have both been 100% successful. My surguries occured in 2011 and 2013.
