Dr. Peng is very knowledgeable professional. His diagnosis is accurate and reasoning is clear.
Nevada |
A dismissive wave of his hand was the answer to all of my questions. He said a diagnosis wasn't important, all that mattered was treatment. He would not discuss my lab results. He requested a copy of my previous mri and then never bothered to look at it. He ignored me when I told him the previous two meds he put me on made me suicidal and wrote a prescription for another exactly like it. I left in tears. Don't waste your time and don't risk your life with this arrogant man.

He is not a man of his word. He bad mouthed my other doctor. He would not look or even try to get my records from my other doctors. Don't see him if you have an auto immune disease. Put me in hospital and then said it would take 2 months to get the ECG results. Don't waste your time! Still having seizures over top of the meds.... looking for new doctor.

Dr. Peng was one of the most unprofessional doctors I have ever experienced. I was supposed to get results from an MRI and EKG test and when he walked in the office he started talking about medicine I could take. I had to seriously probe about the results of my test and then had to probe even further about the results. He was very ambiguous and never answered any of my questions. He actually laughed every time I asked one.Do yourself a favor and go see a doctor who Will actually help you

Dr Peng was my Dr when I had brain surgery. He is a very good Dr and I wish he would not have left springfield il. He is a great person and will listen to your problems.

Dr, Peng in my experience was highly thorough and patient. He listened and answered all questions. His explanations were applicable to my situation and he sees you as a whole person, incorporating other issues you have that could be affecting your neurology problem.

Dr. Peng is the worst specialist I have ever been seen by. He did not want to listen to my symptoms. He did not review old medical records which involved four neck surgeries and he was very impatient both times I was seen by him. He did not like nor listen to questions I asked him. I would never recommend him to anyone.
Susanville, CA |
Listens to what you what you say works and has not worked for you. Explains all medications along with side effects and possible reactions. Very firm in what can cause a life threatening problem. Also provided medical records to him of the facts listed.
As an inpatient, failed to look at medications used during hospitalization which caused a toxic encephalopathy. Instead misdiagnosed condition., recommending invasive brain procedures. Luckily transferred to another hospital for correct diagnosis, and condition was reversed without the invasive procedure he proposed.
