I have seen Dr. Hephner twice now, one time for mental health condition. I didn't know if i should bother with a family practitioner over a mental health specialist but she was easy to talk to and started me on a treatment. She talked with me about my options and gave helpful advice. I didn't feel rushed or my problem dismissed. I also felt like i was given a say in my treatment and that she really listened. I'm glad to have found a doctor that I will stick with.
My now 2 year old daughter and myself went to Dr. Hephner's office as Medicaid patients. We were her patients for around 2 years. We were always treated with respect. The staff and doctor are the best I've ever encountered and I wish I could continue seeing her as our primary physician but we have relocated out of the area.
