January 27, 2020 3:07 PM

He was very nice, but very hurried.

January 23, 2020 11:00 PM

The provider showed interest in the problem I have, which still seems to be a mystery.

January 3, 2020 10:14 AM

Experience was very good, doctor was very helpful.

December 21, 2019 5:50 PM

Excellent experience with both doc and staff. I recently had and experience of being confused with a patient with the same name as mine different diagnosis at a different doc office was given doc wrong record. What I liked is the fact that each staff person verified my name spelling and DOB.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Puncuality is a pet peeve of mine. Doctor was 45 minutes late and spent 10 minutes with me. He didn't remember that he saw me three times before and had done a procedure on me 5 weeks prior. Even though he wanted to see me two weeks later the office couldn't get me an appointment. I had a list of questions that I feel did not get addressed. He gave me the name of another doctor for a second opinion even though I didn't ask of want one.

June 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Tepeli was very professional, easy to talk to, and put my mind at ease.

June 11, 2019 7:00 PM

This was my first visit )(referral) and I was extremely satisfied with this doctor. He gave me the correct medication I needed for my COPD (as prescribed by the hospital and previous primary doctor). We discussed other medications that might be helpful, he checked to see if I could try a different med and discovered I could not and explained why!!

June 3, 2019 7:00 PM

As always Dr. Tepeli is thorough, respectful and kind.

June 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Tepeli is a very doctor and friend I trust him with my life.

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

He is a very thorough doctor. Making sure I understood the treatment of care that he's giving me was very important to him. Thanks doctor Topeli for such great care and honesty, and not being money hungry like some doctors are. I have been dealing with this condition since 2017 and the very first Pulmonary doctor located on 108th Cicero had me to vist his office for months paying a co-pay $30 I had to go sometimes twice a week and look at my condition today 2019 has worsen, so again thank you Dr. Topeli we need more doctors like you with your level care for me(patients).

April 22, 2019 7:00 PM

I needed to get clearance for knee surgery from my pulmonologist, Dr. Tepeli. he fit me in his schedule and was very informative about why it is important why to get clearance due to my COPD.

September 13, 2018 7:00 PM

The dr. was very, nice & concern about how worried I was about having this procedure & kept telling me don't worry well that's exactly what I was very worried. As it turns out I'm going a different route.

August 8, 2018 7:00 PM

April 11, 2018 7:00 PM


April 4, 2018 7:00 PM

After waiting more than an hour, and inquiring about wait time, was told by clerk, our appointment was actually later than we were told. It was a blatant i.e. We had a voice mail with the confirmed appt. time. The office was super over booked. It's disrespectful to make it appear it's the patients fault for having to wait. A mere apology would have been acceptable.

March 28, 2018 7:00 PM


February 9, 2018 6:00 PM

He is great!

February 2, 2018 6:00 PM
