Podiatry reviews in Rocky River

    The toenail fungus was treated with a series of laser treatments which seemed to help. However, the procedure Dr. Ripepi did for my ingrown toenail showed inadequate pain management and a hostile response to patient experience after treatment. I would be wary of seeing him for anything where after-care pain management is needed and would not go to him again because of his lack of responsiveness to patient concerns politely expressed. I've never seen a doctor with such a calloused attitude towards myself in a patient role. The ingrown toenail required in-office cutting of both sides of the toenail. Although I was given adequate injections to numb the toe before and during the procedure, because so much of the toenail had been removed, I was concerned how much pain would occur when the shots to numb my toe wore off because of what I've experience in the past with foot treatments when I lived in Columbus. I expressed my concerns before leaving the office, but Dr. Ripeppi scoffed at them and said that Advil would be adequate. Although I'm 65 years of age, I felt like a child in the way that he arrogantly conveyed his opinion. Several hours later, when the numbing injections wore off, I experienced some of the most intense pain ever and the Advil did nothing for it. On a pain scale, I was experiencing a 9, a question that in my experience most doctors ask, but he had never referred to that scale. Because of the way he had dismissed my concern in his office, I called my GP, who knows me well and who prescribed 2 hydrocodone pills. I only took �� of those pills at a time because I don't like the dizzy feeling they give but they stopped the intense pain and took it took a 1 on the pain scale. I made it through the next 24 hours only using 1 �� pills. But they were a lifeline for the intense toll caused by that amount of pain. After 24 hours, my at home Anacin worked well. When I went for my follow-up appt. to Dr. Ripepi, I related my experience and said that I knew many doctors are afraid of giving pain meds these days with the increased surveillance, but I had needed them and I wanted other patients not to suffer as I had. His angry, arrogant response was that if he prescribed them I could have become an addict and others didn't need them was a surprise to me. I patiently explained that after 2 C sections and a hysterectomy - all which required a few days of pain management medication - I had never had any desire to continue taking pain medication/opiods, and pain management for a short time was very different than long-term management. From that point on, he was closed to all communication and kept repeating that it was his duty to save patients from becoming addicts. This was one of the three worse doctor experiences I have had in 65 years.

    He is very thorough and caring. I had an aggressive bunion that needed treated. He was efficient and thorough. He has excellent bedside manner. The staff was friendly. I would go back to him if I needed to.

    I have only seen him once and it was very brief. It was a positive experience. What he did was effective. He is a pleasant person to deal with and so is his staff. I have not had any trouble getting appointments. He sent me out to get orthotics and shoes for support. He gave me literature to read up on to explain why my feet were acting the way they were.

    She really did a great job of diagnosing and treating the problem....I haven't had any more problems since then.  She is very friendly and seems to know what she's doing.  She has a very nice chairside manner as well.

    He did a great job. My foot is all better. It's good now; I had to have bunions removed. They just got new offices so that is nice. He was pretty available.
