buffalo, ny |
I have been under Dr.Peer's care for many years. Every experience with him and his staff has been positive. He is compassionate and listens carefully. I feel very comfortable with his knowledge and trust that he is and has always treated my pain as safely as possible. I like very much that he is extremely cautious with regards to medications. I never feel rushed at my appointments and therefore have adequate time to discuss my problems and concerns. .
