I took my daughter to see Dr. Pearce for a 2nd opinion appointment for her 50-degree scoliosis, and we both were very pleased with his bedside manner, the medical knowledge he shared with us, and he treated us with respect and felt empathy of what we were going through. We have studied a lot of the nature of scoliosis and its surgery and recovery, and Dr. Pearce truly treated us exactly the way how I'd like to be treated when I visit a doctor. Highly recommend him!

Dr. Peace believes his duty ends when surgery is finished. He finished my surgery at 12:20 pm & did not call or visit my husband in the waiting room when my surgery was finished. Pearce told me I would be in recovery room for 1 hour, but I was there for 5 hours because hospital did not have a bed available for me. My husband found my location by calling the hospital CEO at 4:00 pm. Dr.Pearce did not oversee my care in recovery room where I was abused, neglected & was given medications in error.
