The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Peden.
“Dr. Peden is a superb surgeon and of equal importance to me, he is kind and thoughtful in his efforts to educate his patients. I like the fact that Dr. Peden views the patient as a significant partner in their recovery and he emphasized all aspects of my recovery. Upon meeting him for the first time, I liked him immediately and had faith in his intention to improve the movement of my shoulder for the long term. One of the reasons my comfort-ability level with Dr. Peden ran high from day one is that his approach was respectful and thoroughly detailed, so that I could be informed while making a decision. There was no pressure to have surgery and especially no pressure to have him perform the surgery. He told me to do my research and let him know what I think. My husband attended every appointment and respected Dr. Peden, too. His assistant Katie was enormously helpful throughout the procedure and follow-up. Dr. Peden did everything he possibly could to assure my recovery, including ordering a device to help stretch my shoulder as needed. He also worked with me on my posture; something I try to remember to continue to do. I followed his instructions and had very good results thanks to his persistence and mine.”

“I've seen Dr Peden on several occasions for both right and left knees. I had an injection, mono simvisc, in my left knee and another visit with concern to my right knee which had a total replacement. The staff and Dr Peden could not have been more caring and reassuring. I am a new "snowbird" and was so pleased to have found Vero Orthopaedics & Neurology.”

“I was snow birding in Vero Beach when I hurt my right knee. I called your office and the woman who answered told me to come right down.

“Dr. Peden has done everything he said he would do for me. My shoulder surgery ended the pain I had every night. The recovery has been exactly what he said it would be. It has taken a few months, and now I feel like a new person. If I ever need surgery again, which I hope not, Dr. Peden will be my choice. He is so kind and understanding. I totally trust him.”

“Dr. Peden is very patient, and kind to this 90 year old. He takes the time with me, and has greatly relieved the pain in my knee with the treatment I am receiving from him. I suffered in pain for a while before I was referred to Dr. Peden by my daughter in law, and it was the best decision I made. Thank you so much for being there for me.”
– Joseph G.
“Dr. Peden was very professional. He knew the diagnosis that he was going to give me was not really what I wanted to hear. He was kind, very calming and extremely helpful in getting me the care I needed. He referred me to a colleague of his in my home area and gave me all the tests and paper work I needed quickly so that I could get on my way to Boston. He gave me confidence that this situation could be taken care of and he would be available if his input was necessary.”
