Went in for a shoulder injury last minute, was seen the next day, MRI day after that and saw the doctor again for treatment. Had never seen a specialist so quick. Staff was friendly and detailed when informing me of process to get appointment. Waiting room time was a little long but worth it.

Dr. Pechero saved my life with a hip replacement surgery. His staff was sweet and welcoming when I walked in. The wait time can be a bit long but this doctor is sure to take care of you when you meet him. He was very thorough with his explanation of the procedure and made me feel like I was in great hands. I recommend Dr. Pechero over any ortho in the valley guaranteed! The wait time is so worth it when you realize the experience he has.

He lied when asked when i would be able to walk on my foot after screws being removed from fibula. He said the day after surgery i would walk wthout cruthes. Ive hurt my foot again because he ddnt provide crutches. Terrible service. Im in severe pain , theres is a delay in my recovery now because of this. Terrible doctor. He is negligent.

I was referred by his family dr to them. i arrived at 330 for the night clinic at 6. well it seems it was not told the sign in , they just took my paper work. so it to 7:00 and I was still sitting and waiting. Client services need told be revamped and 100% improved. my son was uncomfortable and thereven seemed to be not rush.

Not a good experience. Front desk has no idea about insurance. staff and office manager kept denying my son a sign language interpreter when he is profoundly deaf. Had to ask VAIL to intervene and give information about the disability act to management.
