My medical experiences with Dr. Peloza have been more than outstanding. He managed to rid me of excruciating pain in my back that had troubled me for years. Any followup appointments are always handled with superior professionalism. I would never hesitate to have him treat me in the event of any back or spine issues. Personally I think that he has no peer—he is just the best! Rita K.

Dr. Peloza took a very prescriptive approach to accurately diagnose the root cause of my chronic back problems and confidently explained his approach to surgically repair my back. While he took every step to avoid surgery, once he realized that was the best course of action, he took the time to explain exactly how the procedure would alleviate my pain and his success rate with that procedure. I am happy to say that I am pain free and living an active lifestyle in which I am truly grateful.

I have cervical (stenosis/degenerative discs/bone spurs) issues, that are quite painful. Dr. Peloza is a thoughtful, conservative physician who tries non-surgical treatments when at all possible. He suggested an injection at two levels and I went from being at a pain level of 10+ to a 1 or 2. That was a year ago & I'm still great! I highly recommend Dr. Peloza, who is a very skilled and highly-trained spine surgeon with years of experience.

Dr. Pelops is not a good doctor in my opinion. He seems out to make money without caring about his patients needs. He sent me to physio therapy at the clinic he owns for 6 months. I missed a week and they thought I had stopped going and sent a bill that only the first 4 visits were covered. They let me pay the deductible unknowingly only to discover I owed thousands. When I queried this he got angry and said he wouldn't do surgery on me. I am thankful I discovered this before I let him operate.

horrible experience with a horrible doctor and staff; no follow up; lack of communication
