"There aren't enough words to say how I feel about the treatment that I am receiving from both of you. I've had so many disappointments in the 12yrs prior. I've been given the chance to be treated by two truly dedicated professionals. I've received more attention from both of you to my problems than my previous doctor. Thanks to both of you for all that you've done for me in the short amount of time we've been together. I'm hoping that we will have a healthy relationship while I'm being treated by both of you."

"Everything was great. I love Dr. Gephardt and his staff. One of the best doctors and teams/staff I’ve been to so far 🙂 Thank you all!"
"Dr. Gephardt, I just wanted to say thank you. I don't think you understand how much I appreciate what you have done for me. I've only been under your care now for three months and you have done more for me than any doctor I've seen in the past three years, and I truly appreciate that. I love coming to your office because I feel like I'm actually receiving answers. Every other doctor has looked right through me because I'm only 21. They treat me like I choose this for my life and I enjoy being in pain, but sitting with you for those 10 to 15 minutes during my appointment you are focused on me and only me. You have given me hope back in my life and that I cannot express enough now that has turned my life around. It's been a long three years for me and for my family, I've struggled so much but you have pushed me in the right direction that I needed. Thank you for not giving up on me when everyone else."
"I'm a 1st time patient and my treatment was extremely thorough, professional, informative and all around pleasant. I've been to many physicians and Dr. Gephardt is hands down THE BEST. He truly cares for his patients. Looking forward to future care with this staff."
"Unfortunately, due to my situation, I'm one of their frequent flyers. Although I know I'll never be cured, I'm so blessed to have these caregivers make my need for multiple procedures so routine that it has become much less a depressing stressor."
"You all out do yourselves here at this office. Very heartfelt and compassionate Dr, nurses and staff."
"Dr. Gephardt is the reason I am no longer on high doses of opiates, bedridden, or requiring the occasional wheelchair. It's rare to find a Dr. who really listens to the patient and respects their wishes. Having a background in research and anatomy myself, it is a requirement of mine that not only my does my Dr. understand my wishes, but also treats me like a human being during my journey. I always have a say in my care... and that is one of the few comforting experiences one can have as a patient."
"Jennifer has always gone out of her way to welcome me and make me feel comfortable here at this office. She always asks how my husband is feeling (he needs a kidney transplant) just out of the kindness of her heart and she is helpful with any questions I have."
