Long story short: I had a lot of arthritis in my right wrist and was referred to Dr K by another Doctor in the same building. Before surgery my wrist was very strong with moderate pain (3-5). After surgery, for 8-10 months my wrist had very little strength and an 8/9 pain level. I found a better wrist specialist whom stated the surgery Dr K did only worked 50% of the time. Now having to treat with injections to lower pain. Had Dr K told me the low success rate, I would not have done this surgery

I saw him for a hand issue and he seemed to be preoccupied and gave me the impression that he was not concerned. He informed me that I had a "growth of something" in my wrist but he was not going to remove it just to be removing it. I showed him that I could not move my thumb any longer or make a fist because of the swelling and he said that I needed to go and see a nerve doctor. I went to another hand specialist and he determined it was a Calcium Mass and had to be removed immediately.

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!!!!
