Dr. Peeden is amazing. I took my child to Children's after he began having extreme bouts of diarrhea. They did a culture and sent it off to the labs for a test that would take 3 days. The general thought was a Salmonella poisoning, but Dr. Peeden wanted to be sure. He ordered food for my son so he would have something to pass through his system. We finally got a stool sample and were sent home after being in the ER for 8 hours. Dr. Peeden said to go home and rest, he would call if there were any issues from the sample. We got a call shortly after arriving at home, it was E. Coli and we needed to get back to be admitted. Since it was caught early, it could be treated with IV fluids to avoid kidney damage. He said to come back through the ER and he would wait for us. We arrive to a total zoo in the ER. We were not there 5 minutes before Dr. Peeden came to look for us. He got my son rushed through and admitted quickly. He did not leave until he saw transport had us ready to

Dr. Peeden went above and beyond the call for our very ill son we had to rush back to ETCH’s ER following a misdiagnosed ER discharge from another Dr at there ER visit less than 24 hours prior to. As soon as Dr. Peeden saw our son he knew something very serious was going on and quickly jumped into action. His quick actions saved our son from having to undergo emergency surgery that night and I will forever be grateful to him.

I have to say I was astounded by the level of care, expertise and compassion shown by Dr. Peeden. My son was suffering with OCD symptoms and Dr. Peeden went way over and above to provide expert medical care and reassurance to him during a time of great suffering and need. What an exceptional human being....You can definitely tell this man practices medicine for the right reasons.
