    Dr. Hepler was able to fix my neck pain after an injury that made my arms weak and numb. He was very kind and professional. He was able to perform very delicate surgery on my neck and it was a total success. I am very happy. 5 STARS!

    Dr. Hepler's John Hopkins and Columbia training match his meticulous skills! I am so lucky to have found him down here in South Florida! Thank you for all your help and taking the pain away. Pain is invisible and sometimes hard for people to understand what you're going through. Dr. Hepler was able to pinpoint my problem area and CURE me! Thank you is not enough!

    Dr. Hepler was very patient in hearing my history of previous surgery and recent problems. He suggested rehab prior evaluating future surgery. His professional credentials are exceptional

    Dr. Hepler is an amazing and gifted surgeon!! He completely fixed my degenerative scoliosis. That was a 9 level, 8 hour surgery. I was in so much pain before surgery and had exhausted all other options. I was really nervous, but Dr. Hepler made me feel at ease. His credentials really speak for themselves! I knew I was in good hands! There are not many doctors in Florida that have his top notch medical school training! I feel blessed to have him within 1 hour of my home!

    Dr. Hepler literally returned me to my quality of life. I had reached the point where I could no longer walk any distance. Any prolonged standing (more than 10 minutes) put me in agony. After my surgery and a reasonable recovery time I returned to all of my normal activities. I can now ride my bike, ski, hike and I am pain-free.

    Dr. Hepler treated me for a back problem that I had previously had treated by another doctor who did surgery on me. Dr. Hepler spent a lot of time with me and explained all of my options. He did a corrective surgery on my back in the same area. I am so pleased to report that I am now pain free!! I feel like I have my life back and cannot say enough good things about this wonderful man! Thank you Dr. Hepler! You are amazing!
