Patient Comments (2)

Had back surgery (khyphoplasty) and felt much better as soon as the anesthesia wore off! Dr. Peppelman consulted my MRI each time I asked a question and pointed out how he came to his conclusions. A cut above other Drs. I had seen.

Very ignorant and abrasive! Never ran any other tests besides an MRI and because it didn't show anything he blew me off to pain management for 8 months then when they ran tests on me and found tears in discs then he wanted to do my surgery! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? NO WAY! I would never refer anyone...more
