Doesn’t believe in side effects of medicines. Says if you “don’t believe you will get them, you won’t.”

Dr Tepler was amazing. Very knowledgable and makes you feel comfortable as it is an awkward thing to talk to another person about your bowel issues. I would definitely recommend him, my husband accompanied me to the appointment and even got himself an appointment for next week!

Honestly I thought he was gonna be a good doctor until his main comment was on my weight. You’re a gastro not my primary doctor I’m here for my stomach issues not for weight management.

He was proficient in the field, explained protocol to me unlike the previous podiatrist I saw. He was considerate in scheduling me earlier for procedure to accommodate travel plans. It would have helped if he attended to other related issues I have while we wait for authorization.

1st The quality of patient care they offer is excellent, I have never had any complaints, even by phone they are very kind and willing to help with appointments and any uncertainty, 2 nd Dr. H. Tepler always very kindand direct in the recommendations and steps to follow in the treatments, El tiempo de espera puede ser de entre 10 minutos a 1 hora, un par de veces entre al consultorio a los 10 minutos de llegar y pense que estaba de suerte cual fue mi sorpresa que tuve que esperar por el medico mas de media hora, Por lo general entre 30 minutos a 1 hora , Pero la espera se ve recompensada con el tiempo con el que el medico entrega a sus pacientes, ya que uno tiene la oportunidad de hacerle las preguntas para salir de dudas y el responde muy amable y dedicadamente. I'm really satisfied with having him as my doctor

I have a good feeling about Dr. Tepler. I've seen several doctors due to my Crohn's disease, some better than others. Dr. Tepler was phenomenal. He listened to everything I had to say and took me off the strong meds Iwas on. He sent me to do some lab work as well. Hopefully he can help me regain my health back. Overall he was nice, a great listener, and made me feel comfortable talking about my crohn's complications. Would definitely recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Tepler is great. I was extremely nervous and not at all happy about facing a colonoscopy, but Dr. Tepler's manner was calm and thorough in explaining everything. The staff is also very nice and patient with a very nervous patient!This is all a relief as office is poorly marked on the outside, and the waiting room is a construction zone, very rundown and not particularly welcoming. As a tip: do not schedule your initial appointment for right after lunch if you have limited time. I arrived 20min early to deal with any paperwork and questions, but the window was closed until just after 1pm, by which time there were 3 patients all waiting with 1pm appointments, which of course also means the doctor doesn't get to you right away.

Dr. Tepler is a great doctor, as well as the staff! I have never had such a pleasant experience at a doctors office. They honor appointments and as soon as I was put into the exam room Dr. Tepler came inwithin 2 mins. He really listened and explained everything in detail. The whole experience was nothing short of great. Consider yourself lucky if you get the pleasure of being a patient in that office!!!
