    Dr. Koepplinger may be a great surgeon but he is horrible Dr to deal with. Everytime my husband saw him, we felt rushed..Dr. Never asks how he feels, just does the same crap everytime. He always has this "I'm better than you and don't have time for you" attitude. I'm under the impression he thinks he is the best Dr. Out there, but I'm pretty sure that there are a handful of doctors who do just as good a job and actually care. He's raised his voice several times, and has cussed on many occasions

    Dr. Koepplinger is late for his appts. I try to be the first appt for the day thinking he can be on time, but he walks in late. During my last visit I had enough and left without seeing him. You would think he would call with an apology, but of course he did not. His physician assistant, who was also late, finally came in and tried to buy time for him by asking me questions. They also had the nerve to bill me for this visit when I didn't see the doctor. If I could rate him less than "1" I would.

    Absolutely love love this man and his staff. I recently within the past year had to have major surgery on my elbow. Dr. Koepplinger did a wonderful job. He explained thoroughly and I knew going in what I was faced with. Both He and His staff were great at following up and showing they care. Have I mentioned I love this Doctor!!!!
