Dr Pelton lied !! Pelton told ME FACE TO FACE HE WOULD FILE THE APPEAL for the needed shoulder surgery that Dr. Conwisar wanted done over a year ago to repair my bicep and shoulder which ironically still has bone spurs that Dr. Pelton was suppose to remove, he also stated that he was going to send me to another Independent medical examiner, why would that be ? I already had an INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EXAMINER review his work that stated to both myself as well as my partner that more surgery was ne

Dr. Pelton did a fabulous job with my completely torn rotator cuff/detached bicep tendon. He was completely honest about the long rehab (which I appreciated) and I have complete range of motion/usage. I did a lot of research to choose a surgeon that my insurance covers AND understands athletes, sports medicine, and an athletes needs. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Pelton.

I would like to thank Dr. Pelton for being my surgeon. He did my both knee surgery. It was very comforting knowing that my care was in his hands. I firmly believe he made a painful and stressful experience less traumatic for me. There are no words to express my gratitude! I also wanted to thank his staff in the period of time for my surgery. Thank them all for being so thorough in answering all my questions, comforting with their words of encouragement.

Dr pelton left my arm dislocated when fixing my wrist In surgery. When i brought it to his attention he he had no plans and still have no plans in fixing it. THe way he fixed my arm would leave my arm in a state of paralysis. I assistent doctor nunez has no knowledge of tools. And he as well told me if i dont force my bone to go in the right place while healing it will never heal right when they where suppose to stabalize my ulna in surgery. My surgery was 1/28/2016
