I wish I could give Dr Peatman and his staff 6 stars. I've had an ongoing difficult issue with my hip and knee and have been to a lot of doctors. Dr Peatman was the first doctor that actually listened to me and the first to actually try to figure out what was wrong, rather than giving up or saying there's nothing wrong with me. He always treated me with kindness and compassion and it made all the difference. His PA Brian, the imaging staff, and the front desk staff are all so kind and friendly as well. My only complaint is that it can be a long wait to speak to someone and can be difficult to get someone to call you back about issues, but they are such a busy office that it makes sense.

The dr. wanted to send me home 3 days after knee replacement surgery. I was nauseous, weak and needed assistance getting up. I told the nursing staff and the head nurse suggested I should stay in hospital for at least a week and see how I was after that. The dr. maintained I was "fine" to go home in 3 days. I had no family to care for me in the area and my friend could only help on the weekend, so she asked the dr. if they could keep me in the hospital or transfer me to a recovery facility, until I was strong enough to go to the bathroom without possibly falling. The dr. refused. My daughter had to call and speak with his staff about it. The dr. lied, claiming, "your mother didn't inform us she was dizzy and nauseous", when every time I got up, a nurse had to help me, because I was dizzy and nauseous and weak! They didn't do a proper intake, but blamed my daughter for not being there. If my daughter hadn't intervened, I would've been screwed.

This was my third knee procedure - the first with Dr. Peatman. It was far and away more superior to the other two (also it's likely that things have changed a lot n 15 years). I would highly recommend him.

Dr Peatman listens to his patients needs. I needed a bedside commode due to my urgency. He had not had to do this before but he listened to me. I really appreciate that he is not only an excellent surgeon but a compassionate one. Thank you Dr Peatman

Dr. Peatman is an exceptional doctor with a good organization behind him. I was assisted every step of the way and all concerns were addressed. My hip replacement recovery is ahead of schedule and I would reccommend to anyone if they have a condition, to get the procedure done sooner than later.

He is an excellent, knowledgeable surgeon, and im glad he did my knee replacement surgery. His pa Brian is excellent. But to communicate with him or his staff outside an office visit is very difficult.. I do not find Brittany, his assistant very helpful at all.

From the first time I walked into his office I have been pleased with the care received. Starting with the clerical staff, scheduling an appointment, Brittany his PCA, Brian and Abereen his PAs. All are well informed, courteous, responsive and return phone calls. Dr. Peatman himself is kind, listens to your concerns and has good bedside manner. Once it was decided that I needed surgery, my prep and follow up were very good. It was a good experience at a difficult time.

I have a worker compression claim and anyone who has been here knows it's not a easy task. I worked with another surgeon for about 6 months and he said he doesn't like these claims because it too much work. (Forget about my needs). Dr. Peatman took my claim and got it approved and completed my surgery with everything I needed. Afterwards, he & his staff have been in constant contact with me throughout my recovery.

A really positive experience from all members of the team. I definitely made the right decision to have miniscus repair and clean up of knee joint via arthroscopy. Within a few days I could walk downstairs easily and I was lucky enough not to need any pain meds.

I am extremely happy with Dr. Peatman and the entire staff at the Oakland location and the Pleasanton Surgery Center. Patient, kind, reassuring, gifted in matters technical and emotional, he shaped the entire experience of diagnosis, surgery and rehabilitation of my ACL in my knee in ways that exceeded my hopes.
