Kathy the receptionist could not have been more welcoming and helpful while we were there. she is always so sweet. Dr. Keppel FINALLY diagnosed my child after a month of him being sick.

My son absolutely loves to see Dr Kepple and he always takes time to explain everything to me and time to listen to my son even if it's to tell him a story. I have never met such a wonderful caring doctor as Dr Kepple.
Both of my kids really like Dr. Keppel! He is very thorough, makes them feel at ease and answers all questions. I only have to concerns from our most recent visit. 1) My daughter is 12 and has not started her menstraul cycle yet. He said (in front of her), that if it doesn't start in 6 months we might need to figure out why. She left there worried. That bothered me. 2) We waited almost an hour before we saw Dr. Keppel. well past 15 minutes. This happens every time we go in for an appointment. I think they over book and need to have a better system.
Dr Keppel takes time to talk to the boys & doesn't appear to be in a major hurry, even if he is. my kids feel comfortable with him.

Dr Kepple has been my children's doctor for some while now and he is the BEST! I don't mind the other doctors at the practice but when it comes to annual checkups, I always request Dr Kepple.

Dr. Kepple is beyond what I would consider a good pediatrician. He is patient, kind and caring. He spends time with his patients and never makes you feel rushed or just a number.

He is a true gem and we are so blessed to have him as our children's pediatrician!

Dr. Kappel has been our doctor since my daughter was born. I am amazed because he remembers details from she was a little baby. He is a great doctor and we are happy he has been our doctor and until he retires we will continue to request him for her yearly checkups.
my experience with Dr. Keppel was a good one. I had my daughter to a urgent care prior to seeing him and she hadn't gotten better. I was concerned about her illness and he put my mind at ease that she was gonna he okay within a few more days and if she hadn't eaten by the following day or felt somewhat better he would arrange for blood work, and thankfully that next day my daughter showed progress and the doctor's office followed up with a phone call to check on her.
