Just a great guy to experience having as your surgeon. He just worked on my neck and I already feel better than I have in the past three years and his bedside manner is top notch. That means a lot to me. He truly cares about his patients physically spiritually and mentally. That's so rare these days. I recommend this man to anyone needing neck or spine repair.

Dr Richard peek is the best. I had surgery on April 26, 2017. The same day as surgery there was NO more pain in my legs. He removed spurs pressing on my spinal cord and replaced a disk with a cadaver bone. Dr Richard peek sits down with you and explains and shows you what is on your MRI. He has the best bed side manner. He will research and find the best way to fix you. I am so very grateful for this doctor. His team of nurses are awesome and I received the best care ever at ST Vincents.

Best doctor I've ever been to. I won't let any other doctor do my surgery. He is the nicest most compassionate doctor I have ever been to. I appreciate all that he does!

Richard is the most patient centered physician I have ever jad the pleasure to receive treatment from. He takes care of his patients after surgery to maintain their health needs. As an orthopedic surgeon specializing in spine surgery, often surgery is not the end of the patient's needs. He keeps treating even if the issue is not addressed by surgery. Best I have ever experienced. If you have to wait longer than you like, when he sees you he will be there as long as you need.

I worked at the hospital before I got sick he was always pleasant to coordinate surgery schedules. Plus I knew first hand what a good surgeon he was. So when I became ill and needed the type of surgery he performs there was no question that I would ask him to be my doctor. He has operated on me twice now (different operations). He always takes time to answer your and your families questions. I recovered much better than anticipated considering all my other health problems.Nothing but good to say
in Heber Springs, AR |
Dr. Peek is obviously busy, but never fails to give me the necessary time to allay my fears and give me reassuring but honest answers to all my questions. He is surprisingly kind and personable, to the point that I asked "are you a real doctor", after my husband and I had been treated as friends rather than cows to be run through the counting gate. I was totally pleased with the expert care I received in my multiple disc cervical surgery and my well handled 6 month recovery. Thank you Dr. Peek.

My husband had suffered with back and leg pain for a few years, increasing in severity. Dr. Peek was recommended to us by a close friend. Dr. Peek takes time to talk with you, putting you at ease, explains exactly what he plans to do to help you, and is one of the best doctors we've ever seen. Surgery results are excellent.
in Searcy, AR |
Dr Peek is the best Dr / surgeon that I have ever been around period. He explains every step of the way. He takes time to talk with you. He is none other than a class act and a ROCK STAR surgeon. I have not used him before and hope I don't have to,but I have taken one of my best friends to see him on several different occasions . I actually look forward to taking him to see the doc.
