I have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Epter and his staff. They are so friendly and listen to my concerns and help me the best way they can. I look forward to this procedure that will hopefully make me pain free! Thank you so much Dr. Epter and the staff!

If you are even able to see Dr. Epter, you will witness his terrible bedside manner and arrogant nature. You might see him on your initial visit. Every visit after that you will see his practitioner. She will recommend a procedure that isn't needed, but will pay big bucks through insurance to Epter's practice. If you question why the procedure is recommended, they will attempt to make you feel like you are an ignorant patient who has no right to question their expertise. Avoid this practice.

I am and will always be thankful for what Dr. Epter did for me. I had suffered for years with CRPS after crushing my foot in a car accident. Being a teacher and runner, this was absolutely devastating to my daily life. I could barely walk around my school campus. Dr. Epter helped me learn ways to mentally block pain as well as introducing me to spinal injections and the neurostimulator. I cried the moment my stimulator was turned on,It was the first time I felt complete relief since my accident.
