I had to have my 5 & 6 fused after waking up with severe pain in my shoulder, arm, and hand. After asking my primary care doctor, who would he want operating on him or his child...he told me Richard Pearce. Hours before my surgery and there after, I was told by strangers and friends that I just had the best spinal surgeon in Chattanooga operate on me. He is like talking to a friend, not doctor. He breaks everything down so well when speaking that you fully understand everything. You can sense the concern he has for his patients. I give him an A ! Thanks Dr. Pearce your a blessing to a lot of people

Dr Pierce is an excellent surgeon ,, I was treated with true Southern Hospitality,, Wonderful man,, set down with me and explained in great detail everything he would do,, what the results would be,, his attitude was flawless ,, he's such a caring person like having an old friend ,, after my surgery one morning he sat in my hospital room and waited till I woke up so he could talk to me,, which made my day,, how many doctors would do that,, his work he did on my back cured my leg pain which was horrendous ,, I refer him to everyone you couldn't ask for a better doctor,, Excellent doctor ,, thank you Dr pierce for taking such great care of my, it's been an honor knowing you!!!

I had been having headaches and pain in my arm and shoulder for years. I went to Dr. Pearce and he did the proper tests and diagnosed the problem. I had to have neck surgery on C5 and C6 in my neck to remove bone spurs and correct a degenerative disc condition. The surgery went great it it absolutely took care of my problem. Everything went exactly as he told me. The best spine surgeon anywhere!!!!!
