Dr. Epting and the entire support staff were friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and professional! Dr. Epting made me feel totally at ease and explained my foot problem in layman terms; used my foot x-rays to ensure I fully understood my problem; and explained short and long term solutions. He and his support staff emphasized to call them if I had any further questions. This was an extremely pleasurable patient experience. Florida Orthopedic Institute sets the standard for patient care. I highly recommend Dr. Epting and Florida Orthopedic Institute.

I had surgery on my foot 4 days ago. (Bunion hammertoe correction) Dr. Epting is wonderful. He is professional, knowledgeable and has a good bedside manner. I found the staff at Citrus Park Surgery Center to be kind and efficient. From the beginning to the end all of the people I came in contact with were helpful and very skilled at handling their jobs. It made a stressful situation more bearable. Thank you to all of you.

Sincere, kind, listens to concerns, explains procedures and outcome. Dr. Epting was on call at the hospital where I was admitted after a fall to repair my broken kneecap. He has proven to be a skilled & knowledgable physician. I see him at the FOI Citrus Park office where his staff is accommodating and pleasant.

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!!!.

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!

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.
