Helped me. Had MRI. Made his professional opinions, we signed agreements and there was never no problems. He never wrote me medication just for the fun of it . He actually knew opiates wasn’t answer to my back pain but I had other pain issues. Also when I got to point of trying shots for my back and if they helped we hoped lower opiates one day maybe. Well program Dr Jenison doing on feet pulled by insurance,Rupert retired inApril , Cigna not paying Sanapati 600.00 for urine test,Penny,fires me

AWESOME! Stay with the injections & all other treatments & Dr. Rupert will keep your MEDICATIONS INTACT REDUCED and most of all reduce your PAIN LEVEL!!! Dr. Rupert has been an amazing doctor throughout my life changing injuries. I've been with him 5 plus years & also waited many hours with him & will do it again. This is a hard world of narcotics/opioids that doctors have to protect themselves. It's about taking LESS medications , Dr. Rupert can do this for you. Melody Maddox , IN

Dr Rupert is a no good doctor in it just to make money. There is no compassion there. I have had two lower back fusions and need another and my hardware is loose. He looked at my ct and mri and said the fusion was fine, and he was wrong but he got to inject me in the back knowing it was not the fix. Now I missed a appointment I can not get a refill. Poor care is all you will get from him

I waited over 2 hours to see the doctor for a 1st visit. The waiting area was SRO & chairs uncomfortable. When I was called, still in waiting area & within hearing ofanyone they wanted a urine sample - I told her this was my 1st visit & Just a consultation. Then she asked did I want pain medicine, still in the waiting area! No privacy! So many items set alarms off for me. The Dr was rude, loud, & made me very uncomfortable with his manner & behavior. I will not return.

Doc and Pat are great!! The Front receptionist upstairs where you check-in are rude as hell!! Act like your bothering them!! If they have a problem with me checking in/out then maybe they need to find another field. They don’t have any people skills.

When someone went back with me they asked who the patient was. A nurse told me I couldn't be in that much pain or I would be in the floor crying. Libby can't read a drug test. She yelled at me that I was a drug addict and needed to go to rehab. You are not getting any meds today or ever again from here so leave now. I knew she was wrong. Later I called because I got a letter from them. A nurse said I never failed a drug test for Valium and Libby was sorry she read the test wrong so come back NO

I could not believe the low overall rating for Dr Rupert. Very caring & compassionate. Will take time to talk to pts and truly help. I would never go to another pain MD.

I've struggled with pain / limitation for 6 yrs, and during this time saw 8 different specialists to find help. I was not looking for drugs or a band-aid, but real treatment to get my life back. My prayers were finally answered through Dr. Rupert. He genuinely cares and will work hard to get answers. If you just want pain pills, there are plenty of MDs out there that will oblige with that easy way out; but he's looking for solutions!! He has earned my trust 100% and I don't say that lightly.
