Dr. Hepler was very patient in hearing my history of previous surgery and recent problems. He suggested rehab prior to evaluating future surgery. His professional credentials are exceptional!
Dr. Hepler literally returned me to my quality of life. I had reached the point where I could no longer walk any distance. Any prolonged standing (more than 10 minutes) put me in agony. After my surgery and a reasonable recovery time I returned to all of my normal activities. I can now ride my bike, ski, hike and I am pain-free.
Dr. Hepler is an amazing and gifted surgeon!! He completely fixed my degenerative scoliosis. That was a 9 level, 8 hour surgery. I was in so much pain before surgery and had exhausted all other options. I was really nervous, but Dr. Hepler made me feel at ease. His credentials really speak for themselves! I knew I was in good hands! There are not many doctors in Florida that have his top notch medical school training! I feel blessed to have him within 1 hour of my home!
Dr. Hepler treated me for a back problem that I had previously had treated by another doctor who did surgery on me. Dr. Hepler spent a lot of time with me and explained all of my options. He did a corrective surgery on my back in the same area. I am so pleased to report that I am now pain free!! I feel like I have my life back and cannot say enough good things about this wonderful man! Thank you Dr. Hepler! You are amazing!
Dr. Hepler, Thanks for taking care and continuing my back care during the last 13+ months
Dr. Hepler, I didn’t know how much pain I was in until you stopped it. For the first time in over a year I feel good, no pain, and I’m not exhausted. I feel energetic. Thank you for making me feel human again. Warm regards, Shelby P.
Dr. Matthew, Words can’t express the thanks for your help in ending the pain in my back
Dr. Hepler, A little note to say thanks for fixing Adam so we could see the smile that comes after the athlete has succeeded on the field. Your concern for ADAM AFTER THE SURGERY AND THE WEEKS BEFORE THIS FIRST GAME ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED by this mom and dad.
Dr. Hepler, With some good walking shoes, a Canadian cane, and most importnant, your good work, I’ve been trekking the cobblestone streets of Florence and Rome. On many days the walks have lasted twelve hours or so, between streets, churches, and museums. I couldn’t have done it without your help. Thank you very, very much!
Dear Dr. Hepler, I wish you to know that I feel most fortunate to be in such gifted hand! It is only though your knowledge, expertise, and dedication that surgeries such as mine are now possible. May God be with us both today, and in the weeks that follow, and may I be as wonderful a patient as you are a physician! Sincerely, Martha L.
Dr. Hepler, I can’t express in words my sincere thank you for the great skill you possess in making this surgery such a wonderful success. My pain is gone, the tingling and numbness is gone in my hands and legs. What a relief I feel. I now can get on with my life and interests without calculating every move that I make to try to keep the severe pain down. I know I’m going to be a much easier person for Dolores to live with. Sincerely, David N.

Dr. Hepler, I left the office last week without telling you how much I appreciate being under you care for the last year. It’s rare to find a doctor that is not only great at practicing his skill, but is also very personable and instills confidence in his patients. Obviously the practice of medicine is not only what you do, but also who you are. Thank you and take care, Tracy R.

Dear Dr. Hepler, A belated, but sincere thank you for being “on call” when I broke my hip. You have obviously done a fine job with the surgery. Also, thank you for giving your permission to go to HealthSouth, it has made my recovery a lot easier. I look forward to seeing you next month when you can see the fruits of your labors yourself. Sincerely, Dorothy M.
Dear Dr. Hepler, It is now three months since my wife’s surgery. We are thankful and grateful for your expertise and skill in performing such a delicate operation. Your warm personality and dedication to your work is to be lauded. This week my wife began her therapy after instructions and guidance to the therapist from your office by your faithful assistant Kanetia. This Sabbath I will be including a special prayer for you during our Service called the “Physician prayer” which was written centuries ago by another great Rabbi and Physician to Kings “Moses Maimonides|”. It will be a fitting tribute to you and your profession. Our best regards, Rabbi Asher Krief and Erma
Dear Dr .Hepler and staff, I appreciate the medical care and understanding you have given me in the past few months immensely. Your physical therapy staff have aided me greatly in instructing me with useful tools for my back health. Sincerely, Elaine M.
