I feel better than I have in years after visiting Dr Pepel for a few months. She seems genuinely concerned about me and my well being. I have recommended her to several co-workers and carry one of her business cards with me just in case a friend or neighbor asks me for a good doctor.

Dr. Pepel is a God send in the world of medicine. She listens, she responds, she educates which is so opposite of what I have found with Western medicine only doctors. I've had health struggles for a while now, and until I found Dr. Pepel, I had almost given up. She looks at things differently and treats the problem not the pain.

I have had thyroid issues for years that no other doctor could properly diagnose or treat. I've been miserable. Dr. Pepel seemed to know what to do after the first visit, especially after reviewing my lab work. I am now on the correct medication and dosage and feel like a happy human being again. I highly recommend her.

Very rude standoffish provider. Have not been in Portland a long time but this was not a good experience so far. Go for a hospital or reputable clinic instead it looks like this lady is a one man show
in Portland, OR |
I have had chronic psoriasis for about 8 years now and I visited Dr. Pepel as her office was nearby my work. She was very quick and to the point, but in a demeaning sort of way. Her mannerisms and looks were almost as if my psoriasis was all my fault and prescribed me 5 pills on top of a solution to use. After 1 year, I had no results and was out nearly $1800 in supplements and visits!! You may have better luck but I would not recommend her at all.

I walked in 5 minutes prior to my appointment time and she made me wait 15 minutes and I could hear her talking to another patient on the phone about their medication at the pharmacy. This was not only unprofessional but just rude. She didn't say one word to me while I was waiting nor did she apologize.
in Vancouver, wa |
Terrible treatment and evasiveness during my first visit. I have never felt so disrespected by a Doctor for asking questions about my arthritis and joint pain. She basically shut me down and kept talking over me, unwilling to listen. I WOULD NEVER RETURN OR RECOMMEND TO ANYONE.

Many patients with thyroid problems come to my office not knowing that their low thyroid is cause by an autoimmune attack. This is Hashimoto thyroiditis, and the treatments is different from the low thyroid that's not due to an autoimmune attack.
