Dr. Ralph Cepero and his nurse Angie make a great team. Aside from their obvious skill and competence I could tell that they really cared and were not just trying to get me in and out the door. This group really stands out, what a refreshing experience. Kudos!

The only positive thing I can say about this office is the Dr. Was actually good. The office staff is rude, and inefficient. Everything from 3 weeks to get a call back to insurance not being filed. Waiting weeks to be refunded for a surgery that still has not taken place. I would recommend anyone and everyone to make arrangements to go to another facility for care, unless you have plenty of time and don't mind a bunch of unorganized people trying to run an office.
