Ratings for Dr. Steven A. Rupert
When he talked, you didn't know if he was talking to you as he had a nurse in there he'd just walk out after saying"Umh, I have a Question?" As soon as he was done telling the nurse what to type. Racist, Pig Face, Rude, Un-Friendly & Un-fair Doctor I, Have Ever Met In My Entire Life.
I've come to find that busy doctors are busy because they are good. I've always been looked after with care, but have seen some very rude patients talking to the staff and honestly was impressed that the nurse or receptionist was able to keep their cool with such bad apples in the office. In every case they would mention and apologize to me for having to be witness. My thought is the patients that got upset are the ones that were just looking for pills without a 'real' need for medication. If you aren't in real need, don't expect to get a prescription.
You wait 3 hrs for 3 mins of his time. He walks out while you are talking. Or you see a nurse practitioner like Libby who is rude and doesn't know how to do anything. They have no paper chart and nothing in the computer each visit and a different nurse each visit. They knew nothing about me. Not my name, face, medical history, or even if I was a man or woman. When someone else went back with me they had to ask who is the patient? I had been there 6 months. They told another patient about my private info which is a Hippa violation. Walgreen's and CVS won't fill his prescriptions.
Very good for a pain management physician. Very busy, and there can be a significant wait to see Dr. Rupert in particular, but that can be seen as a good sign. I would be worried about a physician with an empty office. The staff have always been wonderful to me, but I have also been patient and cheerful with them. I have overhead very rude patients in person or over the phone, so it may be you get what you give. Definitely not a "pill mill." If you end up getting a narcotic there are very tight controls and they will check the state database (linked to Illinois and Kentucky.) The primary downside is that it seems like there are different nurses every time I visit. Perhaps they are a training site, but I do not know. The end result is that phone calls can be lost and/or not returned. In summary, one of the best pain medicine specialists I have seen. If you are in true pain, you will get great care. If you are out to scam someone....then have your bail bond lined up.
Dr Rupert is the best doctor ever. I have multi issues with my back. Herniated Disc, Spnal Stenosis, Disc inpingement along with other issues. Nevertheless I came to Dr. Rupert walking with a cane 20 months ago and on medicine for pain. As of 2012 I am not only off my pain medicine but I am walking without a cane, I have pain but the shots he gives works wonders and I work, work out etc... Dr Rupert gave me my life back were I was told by other Dr's I had certain Medical conditions I do not have and that I would need major surgery and on and on. I did not have any of the issues the other Doctor's said I would have. Dr Rupert and his whole staff our simply fantastic!!!! they care about you as a person as busy as they as ( which this office is none stop which tells you something) If anyone is looking for the perfect Dr and staff I would recommend 100%++ this group. They are awesome.
I have been a patient of Dr Rupert for almost 2 years. After suffering from DDD and disk fracture pain for 10+ years, treatment at this clinic is as good as it could be w/o surgery. One of the 2 few complaints I have is sometimes long wait times and sometimes rude R.N staff member. I will say however.. I would recommend Dr. Rupert over the very rude, self centered Pain Management doctor, Dr. Oliver any day
Dr. Rupert and his staff are wonderful, caring professional.The best!!!. He truly knows what he is doing. Very Very knowledgeable and very caring. It is such a pleasure to have such a professional Doctor and staff to assist you when you need it. I would say the very best.
His staff can be rude and almost act is if they dont know whats going on.They seem overwhelmed and always on the run, almost as if a rat race is going on. The Doctor seems to be in a hurry too. Depending on his mood and the office schedule (which is uaually busy) he is either real helpful or almost disrespectful. I had seen him off and on for many years and until recently and was satisfied even with the waiting room times. As of resent he doesnt seem to have the time to listen to the over all picture of the problems I inparticular were experiencing, as if he is overwhelmed by too many patients or doesnt care. I really hate to write this review as I have always respected him,but at this time I will avoid that office at all cost as it seems like a heard em in and and heard em out operation. Its unfortunate considering all the pain clincs to choose from in the area. I hope your experience is better than mine should you choose them. IMO
