I recently used Desert Orthopedic Specialist (Dr. Peairs) for what I believed was a torn rotator cuff. Dr. Peairs was able to confirm the injury was not a tear but more likely a bulging bursa. He went through the xrays with me and explained exactly what was going on. Quick prescription for anti-inflammatories and ice and I am close to being all better. Thoroughly pleased with their service and would recommend them to anyone. They were able to get me in quickly and I had no wait when I arrived.

I tore my ACL Oct. 2015 and since I didn't have the greatest luck with surgeons/ insurance, I had to switch surgeons 3 times. Dr. Peairs was fantastic! I felt he took his time explaining the entire process in detail. His office assitant was better on her own than several offices I had been to that had a whole office team. I don't give him 5 stars lightly. I went through a lot of crap with other surgeons before him. He was great & I felt taken care of. I would strongly recommend Dr. Peairs.
