Specialties

Dr. John M Pepe has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Excellent Doctor

Dr. Pepe is a top notch nephrologist who truly cares about his patients. The wait time is sometimes insanely long (I have waited over 2 hours on some occasions) which can get a little annoying, and he does often do several things at once, but he is a tremendously talented doctor who will do whatever it takes to diagnos and treat your condition. He is ALWAYS available (which is part of the reason for long wait times), always takes your call, gives out his personal cell number, and is not satisfied until he is certain you are on the road to recovery. I've been a patient for over 20 years, and I can honestly say without Dr. pepes help and guidance and wisdom and dedication, I would not be here today to write this. If you need a highly skilled nephrologist, and dont mind waiting and at times having your appointment interupted, then there is no better. If you are more concerned with getting in and out in a hurry, then Dr. Pepe is NOT your man. Bottom line, youo will be hard pressed to find a better DOCTOR than Dr. Pepe.

Great doctor

Dr. Pepe is top in his feild and has been rated so by the NY Times severl years in a row. He is an amazing doctor. The wait time is long, but that is only because he gives each patient a lot pf personal one on one time. He is couteous and goes above and beyond for each of his patients. Many docotrs will only spend a few minutes with you and send you on your way without even answering all of your concerns or questions. Dr. Pepe really cares and will give you all the time you need with him. He even gives out his personal cell phone number when needed. He works 7 days a week to ensure his patients get the best care.
