Philosophy Of Care

I believe in a multidisciplinary approach to treating pain and maximizing function. My goal is to provide excellent patient centered care while promoting return to activity. I feel that oftentimes pain takes precedent over function, when it’s truly the ability to function that allows people to return to work and engage in an active lifestyle.

Dr. Peng took the time to listen to me thoroughly, understood my problem exactly, confirmed the diagnosis of my PCP, elaborated on it, and explained it to me in layman's terms. He discussed options with me and we decided on a treatment plan that made sense to me. I'm so happy to find someone I can have confidence in!

While I had sent my doctor's notes and an MRI into the office to be approved for a visit to discuss nerve pain in my foot, Dr. Peng told me during my visit that he really doesn't know about feet. I felt that I should have been referred to another physician or practice instead of being seen there.
