Testimonials

“Great physician. I have heard that you should never resort to back surgery, but I had to due to extreme pain and loss of everyday activities. The surgery went better than I expected and I have no pain 1 year later. Dr. Peelle was fantastic and greatly improved my life!”

JDW Jr.

“I have been in pain my entire life because of scoliosis and a birth defect which left two discs fused together. . As I got older, nothing worked. There were times I was unable to take a step because the sciatica spasms were so painful. Dr. Peelle performed spine surgery going through the front, back and side in order to properly repair my problems. I am 10 weeks out and have no numbness, tingling or spasms and almost no pain! I am already able to walk a mile a day!”

Judy F.

“Received a dual disk replacement in my neck from Dr Peelle and I could not be happier with the results. I have had improvement in my range of motion, strength in my arms, and have vast improvement in the numbness in my upper back and shoulder. I anyone I know had similar symptoms I would definitely recommend Dr Peelle and disk replacement rather than disk fusion.”

Brandon

“My spine surgery has been such an amazing journey. I could not be happier with the results – standing straight, no more leg pain. I realize I have more to go, but can’t say enough about Dr. Peelle and his staff. Fabulous! Dr. Peelle listens and explains thoroughly! Am able to walk 1 mile which I hadn’t been able to do for over 3 years!”

Linda V.

“I can not say enough positive things about Dr. Peelle and his staff. I got appointments quickly. I never had to wait longer that 10 minutes in the waiting room for any of my appointments. His staff went above and beyond in dealing with my difficult insurance company. Dr. Peelle was excellent at explaining my options to me and answering all of my questions. He spent time with me and I never felt rushed. My follow-ups with Rebecca were wonderful. She was patient and always helpful.”

Michelle

“Fantastic Physican. Dr. Peelle took the time to discuss treatment options. He performed microdiscectomy on my lower back and did an awesome job. I highly recommend him for any back problems.”

Voltaire P.

“I saw Dr. Peelle due to cyst on my spine. On my first visit, I was comfortable with him and the staff. Had been in excruciating pain for over two months and being treated for sciatica issues. Decided I needed an orthopedic doc. Self-referred to Dr. Peelle who promptly scheduled surgery at Palmetto Health Parkridge Hospital ( very good experience there also.) The day of my surgery my pain was eliminated. Could have walked out of hospital! Would recommend Dr. Peelle for spine issues!!”

Stan L.

“After 11 & a half years of chronic back pain I saw Dr. Peelle. I had tried everything; epidurals, rehab…all methods of suggested relief without improvement. When I saw Dr. Peelle after my MRI, I walked in with a written list of questions and concerns. He didn’t rush me and he patiently answered each one. I was nervous about proceeding with surgery; however, it was the best decision I ever made. I woke from surgery with absolutely no pain. He is a skilled specialist!”

Sara D.

“I have a herniated disk that was causing unbearable pain in my lower right back and leg. The alternatives were surgery or an injection. Naturally I opted for the injection. With a week, I was completely rid of pain and have been for almost two months. I could not be more pleased.”

Greta G.

“I just love Dr. Peelle and his staff. Love his knowledge, attention to detail and his bedside manner is A+. I highly recommend him to friends and family, even to complete strangers!! I’m at 12 weeks post op and ready to run/cycle again with no problems. Wish we would have known about him when DH needed back surgery a few years back! I wouldn’t go to anyone else!”

Tom C.

“Very likely to recommend.”

Wilma

“Dr. Peelle is an excellent surgeon; I would highly recommend him. First surgery (lumbar ruptured disc removal) was outpatient; no complications, immediate relief and back to work in 3 days. The second surgery (three cervical discs removed and replaced with plate and 6 screws) was a one night stay; no complications, immediate relief and back to work in 7 days. He was very thorough and patient in explaining my condition, the surgery and expectations. 100% improvement to quality of life :)”

Kim W.

“I had a spinal microsurgery done by Dr. Peelle in April, 2017, he did a great job and cured my herniated disc problem. Before the surgery, he answered all of my questions patiently and explained what would be the best treatment for my condition. I would trust him if I ever need to see a spinal doctor again (hopefully not), and recommend for others.”

Bruce R.

“I am delighted that I was referred to Dr. Peelle, who helped determine why shots, PT, and and an epidural had not lessened the tingling, pain, and numbness I felt on standing. From the first visit, Dr. Peelle’s staff was helpful, cheerful, and professional. When Dr. Peelle suggested his plan to replace worn discs and add metal parts to correct herniated disc and nerve blockage, I trusted his expertise. I have my life back now, I can walk, sit, stand and do more than I could before surgery.”

Jeanette

“Dr. Peelle did a cervical fusion on me in October 2016. It has been six months since the surgery, and I have progressed well. I have had virtually no pain and am really not limited in my daily activities. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Peelle to family and friends.”

Betsy W.

“I was very pleased with Dr. Michael Peelle. He did surgery on my back to correct a problem with spinal stenosis. The operation was successful and his follow-up was very good. His PA Rebecca also did an excellent job during follow-up appointments.”

Irmo

“I found Dr. Peelle to be very good listener, and insightful in understanding my symptoms as I described them. He is very patient in explaining what is occurring. I am very thankful that he is my surgeon. And he has a real jewel in Becca Asa his PA.”

Don L.

“yes, yes, yes, my back is so much better best of all great thanks to my to dr. peelle, md miss Rebecca god, jesus, prayers , family, friends , church , and pastors ”

Robert M.

“Dr. Peelle did an amazing job with my cervical disc replacement! I have full range of motion with my neck, the pain and numbness completely gone. My fear was I would become somewhat immobile and unable to perform certain tasks; however, I am back in the gym at 100% and do not have any physical limitations in my daily life or in the gym. Surgery was outpatient, quick recovery, and follow up with Dr. Peelle’s office has been awesome. Total success!”

Kanyi M.

“Dr. Peelle took care of me after I injured my back. I was impressed with his knowledge and the fact that he did not immediately want to rush me to surgery. After trying several options, he operated and now I feel like my old self. His office staff was very friendly and helpful as well. Everyone really seemed to care about me as a person. I would suggest anyone with a back problem visit Dr. Peelle.”

Trudi

“Dr Peelle has performed two different procedures on me for long standing back problems. Before going to him for treatment I searched his reviews and found an angry man who didn’t get his desired workers comp, and someone who didn’t like his bedside manner. I went to him for his skill and ability. I’m glad I did. Should I need additional work he will be my desired surgeon.”

Ken B.

“The care I received over the past 3 years from Dr. Peelle and his care team has been exceptional! Dr. Peelle explained both surgical procedures he performed in detail to me. He and his staff answered all questions, promptly returned phone calls, emails, and refill requests for prescriptions. They were always professional and genuinely interested in my well being. Dr. Peelle has an extraordinary bedside manner and I would and have recommended him to my family, friends, and co-workers!!”

Garner T.

“Dr. Peelle is very professional. i really really really liked him and his staff. He listened to all my concerns and took them seriously. He always proposed a solution.”

Paula M. F.

“Outstanding! Reliable surgeon. He’s done two separate surgeries on me and the results have been wonderful with both.”

Ronald R.

“A great doctor. He listened to everything I had to say and he worked with my insurance to approve the treatments. Luckily I didn’t need surgery but I would return to him if I do need surgery in the future.”

Paul D.

“He really helped me with my pain. My back feels much better now.”

Nick C.

“I just wanted to say thank you! I am back to normal after a C6 disc replacement – full exercise routines, work, and my dogs are excited for the extra walks and love.”
