Dr. Culpepper has traveled of the world and has lived in several states in the US. Greenville, SC seemed like a great city to set up shop, so he built a small office at 409 Donaldson Road that opened in February 1977 and has been here ever since. As the practice grew, he remodeled and expanded the office in 1982 and again in 2012.
Dr. Culpepper and his wife Carol have a blended family of three daughters, two sons, and 11 grandchildren. In their free time, they love hiking, antiquing, going to the beach and Lake Jocasee, and staying involved in their church.
