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.

Dr. Peavy treats my 80 year old mother. He is so incredibly patient and respectful with elderly patients. Many doctors sidestep older patients and focus on the younger person in the room in order to get information more quickly. He engages and includes her in all discussions and focuses on her. His bedside manner and sense of humor always make her feel so comfortable. He is also an excellent surgeon. I highly recommend him.
