In Loving Memory

Dr Epps was a devoted Psychiatrist that put fourth full effort towards helping his patients. The beginning of 2009 an illness crept into him and interfered with his practice. In 2010 the illness ultimately lead to his death. I will always remember the Dr Marvin Clark Epps M.D. that inspired me on a path to help others in the field of psychology.

One Star

Dr. Marvin Epps is arrogant, rude, brusk, and hasty in making determinations. Epps has a tendency to mock his patients, to make flippant, inappropriate remarks. Epps also has a tendency to minimize the severity of a patient's problems. He lacks logic, depth in his own thinking.
