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.
