“The longer one listens to a patient, often that’s where the solutions arise.”
A sleep medicine and neurophysiology specialist, Dr. Reploeg is the medical director of the Samaritan Sleep Medicine Program, which is supported by the providers at The Corvallis Clinic’s Sleep Medicine Department.
Dr. Reploeg and the other providers treat a variety of sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and restless leg syndrome.
Language(s) - English
Dr. Reploeg (pronounced Rep-Loag) first listens to the patient and tries not to jump to conclusions. “After we have an understanding of what we want to improve with respect to their sleep disorder,” he said, “we then work as a team.”
Originally wanting to be a neuroscientist, Dr. Reploeg realized he wanted more direct involvement in improving people’s lives. “There’s a lot of value in doing research,” he said, “but I enjoy helping people day to day. That’s where my interest in science merged into an interest in medicine and being able to work directly with patients.”
Dr. Reploeg especially enjoys practicing sleep medicine because he can help people usually without medications, employing physical or behavioral treatments. “And people get better from these conditions fairly quickly,” he said. “That’s a very satisfying part of what I do, because we can see improvements sometimes overnight.”
Dr. Reploeg, a Minnesota native, and his wife were attracted to the Pacific Northwest because of its climate and beauty. “Specifically, we were looking for a small town to raise our family,” he said. “We also enjoy having close proximity to the ocean and to mountains. Outdoor activities are how we spend our free time, such as skiing in the winter and biking and tennis in the summer. We have all those opportunities in the mid-valley.”

Press Ganey Survey Comments From Patients
Dr. Reploeg was very personable and approachable. Would highly recommend him to family and friends.
I was apprehensive about a sleep study and the treatment for sleep apnea. He explained things in a way that made me feel it not only important to have the test but that the treatment has become more comfortable. I am proceeding to have the sleep study.
I appreciate Dr. Reploeg’s attentiveness and professional manner. I’ve had two visits with him and both have been positive.
This was a great experience. The doctor was on time and did not make me wait at all. He respected me and listened to me and suggested an alternative treatment after an assessment is made to fit my needs.
Really liked the doctor. Feel like I will get help with my sleep problem, tiredness.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Reploeg Replied for 15 years or more and he has always been fantastic. His assistant McKenna is fantastic as well. I couldn’t ask for a more professional, knowledgeable, and empathic pair of caregivers.
Dr. Reploeg took a lot of time to listen to my concerns and explain what more testing would entail. He was very personable and did not seem to be in a real hurry to get me out of the office.
Dr. Reploeg explains the state of the science and research to me at my level. I really appreciate that.
Dr was very thorough, kind, and willing to listen to my concerns
One of the most knowledgeable and caring docs – great at both explaining and listening. I’m so grateful I have him as a resource.
Dr.Reploeg has superb clinical communication skills. His expertise in his specialty is obvious and his ability to connect with clients excellent. I feel fortunate to have him as a member of my healthcare team.
I’m 100% happy with Dr. Reploeg. He has diagnosed my sleep apnea and improved my life immensely.
He offered me good advice and tools to help me with my problem. He was courteous and a good communicator, and seemed to listen to me effectively. He came across as very professional, thorough, and trustworthy, which stands out to me because I have dealt with many doctors who seem much less professional.
I was so happy with the information Dr.Reploeg gave me! he was so helpful and so nice!
Dr. Reploeg was kind, willing to listen to my concerns and make decisions that may improve the sleep apnea concern. He focused on getting everything arranged prior to me leaving the office so I would not have to wait for a call or call his office later.
Dr. Reploeg was kind & professional and friendly – He helped me to be confident that he could give me the care I needed.
Mark is a good listener and has answers on his lips.
Saw doctor once for an interview for a sleep study test. I found him to be exceptional – he addressed concerns way beyond the ‘sleep’ study.
Good visit – good talk with Dr. – learned a lot!
Everyone was very nice and went above and beyond to help me! wonderful staff and a very kind Doctor!
My friend quit seeing a sleep specialist after her last appointment and I had to talk long and hard to convince her to see Dr. Reploeg. She still comments on the difference and frequently thanks me for getting her to make an appointment.
Best doctor in Corvallis.
I trust this dr. He trusts me that’s everything to me.
At first, he seemed almost rushed, gave basic information, and seemed done with his part. However, I had several questions; which, he did answer.
Provider listens attentively & effectively w/respect & compassion. I always feel “heard” by Dr. Reploeg.
Dr. Reploeg office and staff professional, friendly, and I look forward to routine reviews with Dr. Reploeg and staff.
Dr. Reploeg was one of the most positive overall encounters I’ve ever experienced with a health care provider. he is to be commended for his level of care.
This is the first sleep care provider I have seen that explained fully what is going on with my apnea. Realistic results and options were discussed. He has earned my respect. I will recommend Dr. Reploeg to everyone I can. I wish I had a primary care Physician who spends that amount of time, care and explanation.
I was seen at my scheduled time and Dr. spent about 30 min with me explaining all the things about why I would need a sleep test. I felt informed and cared about.
Dr. Reploeg is a super doctor. I am so impressed!
I’m extremely pleased. Thank you for your good care.
Excellent care was provided by Dr. Reploeg! He was very knowledgeable and made me feel like I wasn’t crazy having the symptoms that I was having and I felt like he completely understood the symptoms I have been having and he provided an excellent plan to get help with the issue(s). I will highly recommend him to all family and friends!
