Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Not happy with the care I received. Still having the same issues and nothing has been resolved after 6 months. Don’t ever question him or ask questions about your care, it seems to annoy and anger him.

Wife recently had heart troubles. Spent hours looking for the best cardiologist in STL “on paper.” That led us to Dr. Stephen J. Pieper. He is incredible. One of the most intelligent and wisest men you will ever meet. We are grateful we found him and his staff. He is the doctor that I would trust the care of my mother, wife, or daughter.

I really like him. He seems very passionate about his job, yet is one of the most humble docs I have ever spoken with. Very intelligent and well-spoken, does not talk down to you at all. He was very respectful of my input and choices and I really appreciated that. I have been a heart patient for nearly eight years, and I would definitely recommend him.
