Ratings for Dr. Franklin Pepper, Retired
Falls asleep at least 2x's a session, doesn't matter what time a day. Forgets what meds he prescribes. Each session reviews the session before and wastes my time! I've waited 45+ minutes in his waiting room. As of today I'm looking for a new Dr. I should have researched before simply choosing him by his unique name!!
Ony saw him twice. He was falling asleep through the whole first visit and end of second visit. Took poor notes on my history and had to be reminded of serious childhood abuse. Latched onto a symptom of my issue (alcohol makes pre-exising anger issues worse) and has yet to address the actual problem. Waste of time and insurance. Seeking a younger doctor that pays attention.
I went to Dr. Pepper for an issue that I had and he fell asleep on me while we were talking. He prescribed me medication that did help me, but any doctor could have done it. I didn't really need any verbal therapy or anything, it was a simple issue. However, if I were an addict or had a more serious problem and he fell asleep on me, I would be extremely offended. Take a lesson from me and the person who wrote above, DONT BE THE FIRST APPOINTMENT OF THE DAY. That's all, I can't honestly say anything good/bad about his psychiatric help.
I have been Dr. Pepper's patient for over nine years. One of his specialities is in treating alcoholics and addicts. I am one, now in sustained recovery. If that's you too, don't expect him to be nice. Nice does not work with alcoholics and addicts. You need to be told the facts, bitter as they may be, over and over until they finally sink in. I agree that he makes Dr. House look nice, but that's not what I pay him for. I paid him to make me well, and he did, but he couldn't do it for me. Dr. Pepper is one of the most intelligent, professionally knowledgeable, degreed and caring people I've ever met underneath that gruff exterior. If you want nice, go to someone who really doesn't care. And don't go to AA or SMART or any ot other support group either. Practicing addicts and alcoholics are, all of us, manipulating liars at our core. Otherwise, we wouldn't be able to maintain our disease for so long. If you want to get well, go see him.
His office is on one of the bottom floors for an apartment building, so his office is basically an apartment. Very cluttered. I saw him a couple times. The first time, the guy was falling asleep while talking to me. Worst part was that I was his first appointment of the day at 9am! Giving him the benefit of the doubt (maybe he was awoken in the middle of the night for another patient), I had my follow-up appointment with him. He just subscribed a different medication for me as the first one wasn't that effective. I haven't gone back to him since because I believe it'd be rather pointless.
