Dr. Pepple is amazing. He’s very knowledgeable and straight to the point. He tells you in detail what his plan is and ensures you know what to expect. He doesn’t sugar coat it or keep you in the dark. I felt very confident in his work by his demeanor and why he carries himself. My only let down, and the reason for a 4 star rating, is that his office staff has much to be desired. Post-surgery I had a few concerns that I called their office to discuss. The call routing to an MA had me leave a voicemail which was never returned. When I did finally speak to someone, my concerns were not addressed. Days later, when I called again, I was able to have someone listen and was advised to send photos and I would receive a call back. No call came. Lastly, on the day of my follow-up appointment, when I met first with an MA - she said (and I quote) “I see here you had called in with some complaints this week.” No, I did not call with complaints. I called with CONCERNS. Very unprofessional.

I cannot praise Dr Pepple enough for meticulously completing a very challenging surgery that many other surgeons could not have. His expertise in transplants has raised him to the next level of surgical expertise. He is the surgeon that other surgeons and physicians choose for themselves, so you have some idea of how impressive his skills are. If it wasn’t for him, I would have had to undergone a much more invasive gallbladder surgery...he is that good! Dr Pepple is a first-choice ranking surgeon...I was so fortunate that he was the one with me in the OR, for it was him that made all the difference in my successful recovery. He is top-notch all the way! I can’t thank you enough, Dr Pepple!

To the point. Dr. Pepple and his staff at Arizona Premier Surgery truly deserve my 5 star review. From being able to fill in all my 'first time' forms from home through the patient portal, to the friendly and caring office staff, and especially Dr. Pepple's "bedside manner" in the office and pre and post op visits, all top drawer. And of course the total success of the op was job 1. Even a billing issue from the op but not related to his procedure or office billing was promptly addressed and professionally resolved. Well done! And thank you.

Dr. Pepple was my Surgeon for a very complicated surgery. He met with my family and explained everything in understandable terms and made me feel very much at ease about the upcoming procedure. He was at the hospital every day to monitor my progress and assure me everything was progressing as it should. Also, after surgery he explained everything that was accomplished to me and my family.

We would give Dr. Pepple 100 Stars if possible! He saw me right away after I was referred to him. Within 48 hours I was having my gallbladder removed by Dr. Pepple. He is quick to assess the situation, showed me exactly what has happened and how he is going to get me back to good health. I never doubted him or his team at Honor Health. Dr. Pepple is kind and considerate with a great sense of humor!! Don't hesitate here... Dr. Amini and Dr. Pepple and the whole staff are super great!!!!

I ended up with a perforated appendix shortly after New Year's 2019 and in the hospital. Dr. Pepple was assigned to me. He did a wonderful job of explaining the preferred plan of dealing with the situation, reducing the risk of additional complications and getting me on the road to recovery. He was realistic in outlining the timeframes involved in the preferred treatment approach, and flexible in moving up the my surgery once the initial infection was under control.

Dr.Pepple was by far and away the most professional doctor I have ever experienced! He consulted with me in the removal of a significantly large growth on the back of my upper leg and although wanted to perform in OR agreed that he could perform in office. He explained the difference between OR and in office and was concerned that I might incur more discomfort in office... we decided to go forward down that path and my experience was outstanding!

I love Dr. People, he is always friendly and professional whenever I go in there. He is also very friendly with my twin daughters when I bring them in the office with me. I would recommend him to EVERYONE AND ANYONE! He is not your usual doctor who is worried about getting you in and out of the office quick, he will sit and actually listen to you as a person instead of a doctor. He is very understanding and easy to talk to! :-) I also love the staff and so do my twin daughters.
