I've been Dr. Peavy's patient for many years and I hope he doesn't retire until I do. He and his staff have always provided excellent care. Highly recommend!

Although he has excellent credentials, he does not take the time to answer the patient's questions. Instead, he refers all questions to a staff member. I'm not paying for the staff member's expertise. I'm paying the doctor, and I want his time and attention.

Our entire family has seen Dr. Peavy for years. He is a very patient, kind and down to earth person. He is happy to take time for explanations, and yet always sees us in a timely fashion. 5 stars! Kind staff, also.
