There was over 2 hours of a wait time. It got so crowded that there was no where to sit which is weird given this is a place for people will broken bones in different places. They bought me into theroom to wait some more. The only good thing was the Dr. Was very nice. Reception was not very receptive or helpful to those with pain kept having me sit down and get back up which was painful.

Horrible office, avoid this doctor like the plague. First thing he talked about was my crappy insurance, not my injured knee. Then he said I should get an mri done on the injured knee. Spoke to front desk, they said theywould sent the authorization to my insurance. Few days later, I called my insurance to find out they never sent the authorization because Trepeta told them it wasn’t urgent. Went to Huntington medical instead and got my mri, turned out I did tear my MCL. Horrible doctor and rude staff.

Dr. Trepeta did a great job of interacting with my 4 year old (who wanted nothing to do with being in a medical office), keeping her engaged and speaking in terms she could understand while at the same time communicating necessarymedical diagnoses and reccomendations to me as a parent. A+ provider!

When i was waiting to been the Doctor was yelling at his staff over what appeared to be a scheduling issue with a patient. I felt so bad and was so off put that I almost left. Very uncomfortable. However iended up staying and he was very nice in the appointment. As a physician i was pleased with his advice and with the amount of time he spent with us.

Doctor was quick (probably because of the large amount of patients in the office that day) but thorough. He gave us reassurance about our daughter's condition and future prognosis, and did his best to entertain an extremely cranky child.

Dr. Trepeta was quick but thorough and I left the office much more relaxed than when I walked in. The only negative is that an hour after my morning appointment, my prescription was not ready at the pharmacy (I called anda staff member told me Dr Trepeta was sending in prescriptions in the afternoon after seeing all patients).

I think the doctor was GREAT ! He greater us as soon as he came in the room, he explained everything in a timely manner. He was quick and to the point but in a very caring way but you couldtell he’s a seasoned doctor ! However his assistant seemed like he had a attitude very poor demeanor. We were there for my 3yr daughter she had a toddler fracture and my daughters father wasn’t very pleased with the assistant...you would think he would be a little more happier because he was working with a toddler but he was very quiet, he didn’t give very much detail or instruction on what to do. He left the chart in the back so we were just sitting there waiting until the doctor realized the chart was left and he bought it to the desk where you get your follow up appointment. The woman who gave us the follow up wasn’t very nice herself she seemed so bothered smh. I couldn’t understand why everyone had an attitude except the doctor which is the only reason I will come back, he’s great I could care less about the other people but it would make the experience to the office much better. All I have to say is thank you to the doctor for being professional and very attentive, and that you should get some staff that’s just excited to be there as you !

Quick access and quick to act by Dr. Trepeta. He is very to the point & matter of fact, which was fine. Though my son did state Dr Trepeta was not as gentle as other doctors when dealing with his brokenwrist. But we both appreciated the ease in making the appointment, the lack of waiting, the quick actions of Dr. Trepeta and his expansive knowledge. Would definitely recommend him!

I've been going to Dr trePeta for about yrs now and have been very pleased. Sometimes the wait can be a bit long but the staff and Dr are very nice amd listen and we're very courteous when applying my castand gave me color choices.

I was extremely happy with everything about our appointment. I was a bit nervous when I walked in and saw so many people in the waiting room but after sitting down for only 5 min they called me to fill outthe new patient forms. Once the paperwork was filled out and handed back to them I probably only sat there another 5 min before they called us in. Once in the exam room The doctor was in the room with us within a minute. He examined my sons foot after already viewing his X-ray that I had brought with us and within 5 minutes he was wearing a boot and we were making our follow up appt. I would definitely recommend Dr. Trepeta.

I love Dr. Trepeta. However the person at the front desk who checked us in needs to be given a gift certificate to charm school. She was frazzled, angry, and nasty to patients, including us. When she couldn't find my daughter'sappointment in the computer, she asked me who I spoke with and I said, "no one...I booked it online." She then laughed and lambasted me for actually thinking that scheduling it online would work. She said that using the zocdoc online scheduling system is useless because the office doesn't get any of the messages. When she asked if my daughter was a new patient or a returning patient, I said "returning" because she had seen Dr. Trepeta a couple of times before. However she couldn't initially find my daughter in the computer system. I then mentioned that it had been a little over a year since my daughter had seen Dr. Trepeta, which prompted her to bolt out of her seat, swagger to an area to get some paperwork, and in a loud sarcastic tone say, "Ah ha, she's a new patient!" Uh, excuse me, but this woman might be entitled to her own opinions but she's not entitled to create her own dictionary. The words "new" and "returning" have not changed in definition.
