Do not expect good bed side manners. Had surgery on knee. Dr. never came to talk to me before and after he doesn't come to talk to your family member -he calls them. Since the surgery I have never seen him again, I always get scheduled with the PA. I was given a machine to use with no instruction. I tried contacting the office several times with no response. So I just guessed. It has been 6 weeks and I still have pain and swelling. Finally had physical therapy scheduled last week. Not a good exp

Terrible office staff, no one ever returns your calls or answers the phone. I used Dr. Pepper several years ago and he was fine. Don't know what happened but I called off my surgery because I lost all trust in him and his office staff.

Dr Peppers staff is horrible. The front ladies are rude. The office manager seems unhappy with her duties in the office. I had surgery a week ago and had to fight a week to get the to pre auth. I made a trip to the office an sat there in the waiting room till the issues were resolved. Seems like nobody there can do simple math or do what they are there for. I love Dr. Pepper heat s amazing don't get me wrong. His staff on the other hand.....well I'm Christian an choose not to use foul words
