Here's What Our Patients Say About Dr. Peyton

At Arthritis & Sports, the staff, Doctors, and Physician Assistants (PA) all are kind, courteous, and professional. I had a total knee replacement done. Dr. Peyton was my surgeon and one of his PAs, Lisa, took such great care of me. They make sure you understand the procedure they are about to perform, and that you're feeling OK at every stage. They take care of everything and ensure you're armed with all the education on your procedure so there are no surprises. I'm ok with only seeing my surgeon at the initial visit and then again just before the surgery. I didn't feel slighted or that I was given any lesser quality service/advice from the PAs. I'd highly recommend these professionals for your Orthopedic and surgery needs!

It has been 10 months since my hip replacement surgery. I chose Dr. Peyton for my surgery after receiving five previous patient recommendations. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only is Dr. Peyton a wonderful surgeon, he also has an amazing staff. My PA is Monica and she has been a wonderful source of post-surgery care. I have experienced a minimum amount of pain and, in fact, feel like a totally normal person again. I can't say enough about this practice....the very best place to go for hip surgery!

I have the highest praise for Arthritis and Sports Orthopaedics and Therapy--from beginning at the front desk to Dr. Peyton, and throughout physical therapy. Want to especially mention my therapists Diane and Devon who have taught me techniques and exercises to strengthen my body in preparation for surgery. They have been so patient with me while encouraging me. Also want to thank (1) Megan, the technician who is very attentive and helpful, and (2) the front desk along with others who make my therapy a success. Again, these folks are very caring, patient, and encouraging, and all have a happy attitude and enjoy helping their patients.
