I've trusted my life in Dr. Peloza's hands, literally. My life was on the line a as I had extensive damage to my cervical and lumbar spine w/cord damage. He fixed me. I would trust NO OTHER physician other than Dr. Peloza with my neck or back issues. He's the best hands down, clinical, surgical and post-op care. I have referred my own family to him as well as friends. Certainly worth driving from Okla City to Dallas since 2011 over 25 times. His patient coordinator, scheduler, nurse-A+++++++++

What I like about Peloza is that he does not rush into surgery. He wants to exhaust all of the non-surgical options before considering surgery. Plus i think he one of the more talented surgeons in the country. His PA Matt is great, I often go into to see him first on an issue.
Richardson, TX |
I had been recieving quarterly steroid injections in my neck for a number of years that was required or my pain got out of control. Dr Peloza reviewed my charts and did a different procedure and i have been basically pain free for a year now. This would be 5 star review but we had billing problems with office even after getting pre-approval from insurance.

Previously I had suffered with chronic back pain for 9+ years. I now have been pain free for 3+ years since Dr. Peloza performed a level 3 back surgery on me. He is a consummate professional, highly accredited and highly recognized among his peers. I have great confidence in Dr. Peloza and have recommended him to numerous individuals.

I had my 2 year check, X-rays today. 2 years totally pain free. I was so foolish to put off the surgery for years when the fix was so easy. Dr. Peloza changed my life. I am an active 70 year old, playing golf, working out and working a full schedule.

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.
Dallas, TX |
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.
Dallas, TX |
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.
Frisco, TX |
horrible experience with a horrible doctor and staff; no follow up; lack of communication
in Richardson, TX |
He fixed my back (3 cracked vertebrae, lower back, from auto accident), and I have had zero problems (or pain) since. GREAT doctor !
in Plano, TX |
