Here's What Our Patients Say About Dr. Peyton

This is an excellent Orthopaedic clinic and practice. I have had both knees replaced and have received excellent care and therapy. The physicians assistants take time for check-ups and Dr. Peyton is an excellent surgeon. Although I do not live in the Leesburg area now, I continue to have Arthritis and Sports monitor any arthritis concerns. I only have great things to say about this professional team!

Staff and doctors are friendly, professional, and efficient. Every step of the way they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at ease. Dr. Peyton is a superior surgeon providing quick recovery times and a personal and friendly bed side manner. I have been to other orthopedists and Arthritis & Sports Orthopaedics is THE BEST!

I am very pleased with the outcome of my knee replacement surgery. Dr. Peyton, and his entire staff, were very professional and caring. They addressed all of my concerns in terms that I understood. I now have full range mobility, can kneel, can walk without pain, mow, garden, etc. I am now six months out from having surgery, and am so glad I had it done!
