I wanted to have surgery on my bunion and 2 other toes. After seeing one Doctor and not really satisfied with what was said, my husband researched Dr. Epting and said to me "I found the doctor for you". We made an appointment and were fitted in asap. The Wesley Chapel office was very close to home so that made it even easier for us. If i could give Dr. Epting 10 stars I would. He is kind, caring and very willing to take the time to explain exactly what will take place. Surgery done!!!.
Awe, thank you Nora! You are so kind and we will be sure to let Dr. Epting know that you wrote him a review.

My foot had drastically changed shape curving outward, toes lifted, stiffness, not much mobility and repeated ankle dislocations due to a neurological issue with my back. Years of conservative treatments of physical therapy, braces, canes and orthotics were no longer helpful and actually causing further discomfort. I sought out a consultation with Dr Epting and proceeded to schedule multiple surgeries on my right foot. I now walk with a corrected straightened foot free of pain!
Maureen, what a great story! Thank you for sharing this and for writing a nice review about Dr. Epting. We will certainly share this with him. We are happy to hear that you are free of pain!

Very talented surgeon. Kind, with a very good manner of explaining what is going on!
Thank you Laura! We are very fortunate to have such kind patients. I'll be sure to share this with Dr. Epting. Happy New Year to you!

Dr. Epting was extremely competent and professional while still being warm and genuine, qualities that are vital when dealing with injured patients who need some reassurance. His knowledge of his specialty was obvious, and it was also clear that he truly cares about his job. In my case I had to undergo surgery on my ankle due to two broken bones, and although it was my first time having a surgical operation Dr.Epting and his team made it easy and painless.

Horrible bedside manner. Does not listen to his patient's concerns. I would not recommend this physician to anyone.
