Dr Randy Peoples not only has a caring bedside manner and listens to patient's concerns, he is gifted in his field of expertise..I trust my life in his hands. He performed brain surgery on my mother and my husband, and back & neck surgeries on close friends of mine. He offers hope, when those who need his care, feel like there isn't any.

Words cannot accurately convey the gratitude, respect and admiration I have for Dr. Peoples. He saved my father's life and the lives of many others. I know first hand that he continually goes above and beyond the call of duty. My family does not make medical decisions without his valuable insight. I have and will continue to refer him to friends and family. I am truly blessed to know him.

Dr. Peoples has been caring for our daughter for over 10 years. He cares for her as if she is a close family menber, a daughter or a neice. He is always available to answer our questions and make follow up calls to see how she is doing. I've been impressed by his willingness to research topics and seek counsel from his colleagues and mentors for questions that may have many different answers and/or approaches in order to assure we have the best information available so that we can make the best decisions for her care. Over shadowing all of his excellent surgical skills and knowledge is his heart for his patients and their families. My wife and I are both veterinarians, a profession known for the compassionate care it provides, a trait that has dwindled significantly in human health care since the introduction of corporate medicine. We have 3 special needs children that have required many doctor, therapy, and hospital visits over the years and have been blessed with many highly skilled and caring professionals to assist in our efforts to raise these children. Dr. Peoples rises well above the rest of the health care team because of his compassionate approach and I thank the LORD for putting him on our daughter's team, he has made a world of difference in how she has been cared for. He is one of my heroes and has been an example of the level of care I strive to provide for my patients and clients. Scott Bradley D.V.M.

Dr.Peoples has been an incredible blessing to our family. Not only is he a skilled surgeon but he truly cares about his patients and their families. My daughter who is his patient has referred to him as "my Dr. Peoples" since the first time he did surgery on her at 2 years old. He always has had her best interest in mind and only does surgery when it is truly needed.

I saw dr. Peoples for a problem with my back. He was very thorough and explained to me exactly what was wrong. I appreciated the fact that he was not just going to throw medication at me. He gave me some exercises to do and I have been problem free since.

Dr. Peoples showed honesty and compassion while treating my back problem. His concern for my well being was obvious from the very first visit. His recommendation did not include surgery, like the two previous surgeons. I have followed his course of treatment for the past 12 months and I am now pain free. I highly rcommend Dr. Peoples.

When my husband discovered a large tumor at the base of his skull we were fortunate enough to receive a referral to Dr. Peoples. When we arrived at the office we were greeted by his outstanding staff and within minutes we were brought in to see the Dr. We felt so comfortable with Dr. Peoples bedside manner that we knew he was the one to do the surgical proceedure. On the day of surgery Dr.Peoples came out into the waiting area to reassure me and put me at ease. After the surgery he did the same. He and my husband together decided that ibuprophen would be the best pain medicine as my husband does not agree when physicians over-perscribe narcotics. Stronger meds were availible if he needed them. He did not. The follow up care was equally as impressive even as we returned to CA. Dr. took care in keeping our primary care Dr. involved and informed and we received many follow-up calls by Dr. Peoples. thank you Dr.Peoples..you will always be our own personal Wonderful Neurosurgeon!

Dr. Peoples could possibly be the most compassionate, well educated surgeon out there. His office is run efficiantly and in a timely fashion. I would trust his hands on everyone I love and care for and know that they would receive the best medical care possible.

I have been in the care of Dr. Peoples for many years. To say he is a great Dr. is an understatement. He is one of the most caring and compassionate people you'll ever meet. Other Dr.'s could learn from him. While many Dr.'s are quick to operate, he takes the time to see if there are alternative measures, ie: exercises, physical therapy, etc. for your problem before putting you under the knife. I have recommended many people to his office, and everyone has called to thank us for the recommendation. He is a life saver!

Dr. Peoples repaired my back after a series of missed diagnosis from several other "doctors". I found him to be a very caring, skilled, and competent surgeon. His talents allowed me to go back to work and finish out my career instead of taking a medical retirement. After he officially discharged me, he was still there for subsequent phone calls many years later when I was concerned about minor back aches. He is a believer in taking care of yourself because there is only so much medicine and professionals can do for you. Too bad the other "rater" isn't mature enough to realize this fact. He also recommended a book for me to read and it was a great self help book that I have read several times and lent to others to read. Dr. Peoples has my highest recommendation.

I visited Dr. Peoples recently & paid $480 to spend 10 min w/ him & have him give me as his treatment to read a book & scheduled no follow up appointment. He also recommended I immediately get off my pain meds (even tho am not addicted to them, I go thru 1 months' supply in about 3 months' time), but need the little bit I do take to be able to make it through my work day. I explained I had horrible crippling back pain for 1 1/2 years, but this was his treatment for me...not impressed one bit. He also has no compassion for his patients (or at least me), as I was crying from my pain while trying to explain more to him & he told me I was crying, not from being depressed from being in pain (which i know as a fact I was), but that I was crying from my pain meds. I will never in my life go back to him & will recommend anyone I know not to go there.
