What People Say About Dr. Todd Pepper, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
My experience seems to be the same as everyone else. He and a bunch of new nurse practitioners took over at CPS, with no notice. They were all non-communicative, only asked minimal questions. After being given the run-around about procedures and getting records, I was going to leave the group, as it was obvious that something wasn't quite on the level with them. Then they closed abruptly due to Federal charges. Dr never examined me. Became defensive when questioned. Rude and unprofessional.

My review is consistent with all the other awful feedback he earned from patients. He has zero communication skills....they are so awful this alone should disqualify his from being in the business of trying to help people. Prior to my seeing him, his own nurse told me he was abrupt. He refused to listen to me, yelled at me, this person does not have the temperament to be a doctor.

Dana Simpson (nurse practitioner for Dr. Todd Pepper) is a liar!! Let me explain what I mean by this: I started with CPS in Jan. 2017 & was short the 1st 2 months until they got my medications correct. Once that happened I was not short again.. I had my medicines filled on May 25th whick took me to June 23rd, but on June 21st I had 10 pills left @ 4/day I should have only had 8, but Dana fired me instead saying I was 2 pills short. I asked her doesn’t May have 31 days & she said no (shes a LIAR)

Sent me a letter letting me go from his CPS pain specialist. Had to wait 3 hours finally I see him. In the letter he states that due to my behavior I will no longer be a member or patient. I have a conative disorder which makes my behavior sometimes foggy confused hard to speak. He let me go because of that.

If you're looking for a doctor this isn't the place to come to. Staff is rude and childish to say the least! You won't see the Doctor and the staff does discuss folks business in front desk area. Your info is spread around like an open book and frankly I wouldnt send a dog here for a bandage to be honest!

After many years and many doctors I have a lot to compare this group to. I find the staff and their duties, from reception to bloodwork to consult and post procedure observation to be very professional, efficient and thorough. I could not be more pleased. In addition to their professionalism they are truly kind and caring individuals who, after even just my first visit, asked me questions about a personal event that I had discussed in passing. I could not be more pleased with this group.
