Specialties

Dr. Rimantas S Zalepuga has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

after spending over a month going to my primary doctor and taking several different prescriptions and nothing worked, I was sent over to Dr. Zalepuga. and after an initial appointment a decided plan was agreed up- I had the procedure and did have a couple of complications (not his doing) but am now on the road to recovery- I would highly recommend him-

He's horrid!

He's a complete joke. I've been to him for post gallbladder surgery issues. He threw fits because he had to do tests. He didn't really care and wouldn't even tell me what the results were until I basically had to call five times and get an appointment. When I had multiple people tell me what's going on and I told him, he laughed called me a liar and said that all WOMEN complain of pain when there is no pain! His office couldn't keep their paperwork in order or even with them if their lives depended on it. They would lose files within five minutes of having them. His nurses who set up outside appointments couldn't fill out paperwork right so no test would be done. He is a joke who thinks he is always right and the patient (ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE WOMAN) is always wrong! If you are told to see him RUN AWAY!!!!

walked out

After waiting in the office for an hour i decided to walk out. There was only one other patient called in the whole time i was here and i just sat while no one said a word to me. i'm going to find another place to go especially after reading the reviews about the surgery facility.

He does not seem serious about diagnosing your problem. The surgery is dirty and small. The surgery anesthiseologist is rude and unprofessional. I never saw Dr. Zalepuga until the colonoscopy was over. Another older man was in the surgery room. When I asked where the doctor was, I was told "Elvis is in the house."
