Most specialists lack the personal attention and warmth that Dr. Pehler shows. My surgery was a complete success. I recommend him to anyone who requires surgery.

Dr. Pehler is an awesome doctor. He is a very knowledgeable, thorough, focused, people person who genuinely cares about his patients. He has performed two spinal fusions on my husband, both with excellent results. He has without a doubt improved my husband's quality of life. After suffering with back pain for many years, he is finally pain free! Dr. Pehler is truly an asset to the medical profession. To bad we can't clone him!

Dr Pehler is an Amazing Dr from the min I frist met him from first visit till the end of my Spine Fuse surgery . He treated me like a real human and went over my MRI and explain to me why I was in so much pain . This was after a year of suffering and seeing numerous of Doctors and specialist and number of treatments and pills and being treated like my pain was cause from my own stress and phantom . I was in tears after leaving Peher office due to happy tears that finally I got answers .

While Dr. Pehler is very young he has the talents of the latest techniques and uses them to care for his patients. He always has the time to answer any questions or concerns. He has a demeanor that puts you at ease when facing surgery. Dr. Pehler is very intelligent, however does not talk down to you when explaining procedures. Good sense of humor and caring.

I was reluctant at first with Dr. Pehler as he seemed "too young." Very surprised and pleased with him in every respect. A friend had just had surgery and he was her doctor--he came highly recommended from her. He did back surgery on my husband and I could give him nothing less than a TOP OF THE LINE doctor. Would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. HE'S NOTHING LESS THAN GREAT in my way of thinking.

When some one like me here the word surgery it send quit a shock. That was my experience in November of 2017. Then I met my Doctor Pehler. He is just awesome. We discuss my condition and what he could do for me. Doctor Pehler look me in my eyes that is important to me. He takes the time to answer all my questions, and explain the medical terminologies that I may not understand. I hope he knows how much I love and appreciates all that he is and what he means to me. I love you very much.

I am so happy to have found Dr. have found Dr. Pehler. He has basically saved my life. I was in so much back pain, for years. I am a 68 year old woman that has had 4 back surgeries in the last 15 years. No one wanted to touch me this time. Dr Pehler knew the pain and was willing to perfom the surgery.. I have never met a doctor who was so knowledgeable, kind and had a great bedside manner. He litterally treated me as I were his mother. Anyone in back pain , please reach out to him.

I would, and have recommended Dr. Peheler to friends and family. Every appointment I've had was met with an intelligent, professional, and personable staff. Dr. Peheler is also the same. He delivers confidence with his statements, is detailed, and exudes a relaxing energy that feels very welcoming, He is decisive, produces options, and goes above and beyond, so his patients are well informed and comfortable at the same time. I have had surgery preformed by him. Spectacular.

Dr. Pehler is a fellowship trained spinal surgeon who listened well to my questions and answered them in language I could understand. He explained the surgery that I needed to correct my back problems and included family members in planning my surgery. His follow up care in the hospital and later in the clinic helped me to make an excellent recovery. His professional care and encouragement has enabled me to return to independent living sooner than I expected. I am so grateful for his care.

Dr. Pehler has been caring for me for about 4 months. He never makes you feel as you are just another patient. He remembers you and what you've discussed, all your history and other doctors. You never have to go in and "remind him", like you do many others. His Medical Assistant, Cleo is also wonderful! I've seen many doctors in the last 16 months and he is one, I trust with my life. He recently did an ACDF surgery for me! He is the spine surgeon you want.

He includes the patient and the family with what needs to be done and why it needs to be done. He is very caring and understanding of family situations regarding the outcome of procedures. He is always available for any questions and answered out questions completely. I felt very confident him taking care of me and his skills as a surgeon.
