My significant other and I have been patients of Dr. Culpepper for a number of years. We have been happy with our service. On my last visit, I was especially pleased as I had multiple problems that he dealt with much to my satisfaction. Dr. Culpepper always makes sure that all of our concerns have been dealt with or questions answered.

My visit was excellent, as usual. I never feel like I'm on a conveyor belt - in and out as fast as possible. He listens to what I'm saying and comes up with solutions, answers, etc.

Just brought Dr Culpepper on as my primary care doc. At my first appointment I found him to be genuine, attentive, and easy to talk to. Waiting to hear back on my bloodwork. Scott, Boise

Once you have had a chance to meet Dr. Culpepper several times you realize how very much he cares about your health and well being. I have developed complete trust in him. When he isn't sure about something he either refers you to a specialist or researches and then provides you the answer. Highly recommend him!

I would NOT recommend this physician based on my first and only experience at Dr. Culpepper's office. My principal complaint is inadequate communication e.g. changes to medication without knowledge or consent, and lack of attention to detail on Dr. Culpepper's part - lab results were not forthcoming or accurate. As a new patient I expect a higher, or at least a sufficient amount of consideration regarding my health. I would recommend going someplace else.

This was the worst experience I have had with a dr. The dr was disrespectful, rude, and did not listen to the issues I was having. He ordered tests without consulting with me so I was having to ask a poor little nursing assistant what we were doing and why. The dr did not give me anytime to explain symptoms or question my health and family history. I walked out in tears after he was demeaning and disrespectful. We did not get any type of resolution.

My husband and I have found Dr. Scott Culpepper to be knowledgeable, thoughtful, thorough, communicative, and efficient. He acted quickly when my husband's blood work showed a problem. We rest more easily knowing he is part of our health plan.

Dr. Culpepper was thorough and professional. He took the time to listen carefully and share his best professional judgement of how to proceed. His attention to needs was immediate, with a review of the visit prepared before we left the office.

Dr. Culpepper performed a physical evaluation our out teenage daughter, as required to play sports in high school. She is a average out of shape teenager who is not very active and has bouts of laziness as plagues the age. While conducting the interview she complained of multiple ailments and the diagnosis was multiple tests and x-rays and diagnosis of something that cannot be seen on an x-ray. I am outraged at the multitude and types of tests that were ordered and will not every go back.

I would recommend Doctor Culpepper for quick on top of your medical problems if his staff would follow through on what he wants done. I found that he had a better so called bed side manner and warmth to you over time. He didn't give up on getting me into the right specialists when I needed them. The only thing I was troubled by was that when it came to yearly check up he would rather ask questions about your aging prostate then do the automatic finger wave that other doctors did to make sure.

My husband has been a patient for Dr. Culpepper for a couple of years. This last week we ended up in ER. I called his office to send over a referral for a procedure and they stated he was out of town, which I understand BUT someone at the office should have been able to help us. Nurses never called back had receptionist call to make an appointment 2 weeks away. Will not recommend or return. Called my doc they sent referral & saw him same day. What a difference.
