 Dr. Hepp Reviews

I would normally rate this physician one of the best, but our experience after having been patients for over 10 years was heartbreaking. We received a letter from this physician that he would no longer treat my husband. We were shocked to say the least. We owed no money, never had an argument, and tried by phone calls and letter to determine the reason. I explained to office staff that if my husband had said or done something during his stress test that he was suffering from dementia and was living in a care facility.
No response. Heartless man.
