Dr. Valerie H Peck has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Peck is thoughtful and approachable and spends as much r time as you need answering questions. But in the 12 years I've been a patient I've never seen her anywhere near on time. It used to be 30-45 minutes, now it's 60-90 minutes after the appointment time. (A time the patient is expected to be on time for, and must sign in.) I like Dr. Peck and I have no complaints about her qualifications, but the wait times are simply ridiculous. The only other issue I have is lackluster follow-throughs. Patients must call to ask for results, and then you'll usually get a call that night around 8 or 9pm. If my vet can call me with my dog's results my doctor should be able to call me without my calling first.
Yes, the wait is usually at least 1 1/4+ hours, but, if Dr. Peckis delayed by the patient prior to your appointment, you arenot penalized once you enter the examining room. Dr. Peck isextremely thorough, specific, and goes beyond the sphere sheis involved with. I am treated for thyroid disease, but, when I ambeing examined, my total health is evaluated. I feel that I couldn't be in better medical hands. I plan a period of reading and relaxing when I go to the office for the long wait, but my well being and relieved state of mind upon leaving is the trade off!
Dr peck has been my endocrinologist for over 10 years. There is a long wait at her office. Aside from that she is great. I had 2 endocrinologist before her, and she was by far the best. She literally saved me. She's a really good doctor. I'm willing to wait to see her, because I know how terrible other doctors are. She's excellent
I have been seeing Dr. Peck for a short while but mainly for a second opinion. I recently had a physical (by my GP) and she suggested that I take less thyroid medicine but to run it my Dr. Peck. At the time of my physical, it had been 2.5 months since I saw Dr. Peck. I also had some medical issues which required me to see many other doctors in between so quite frankly, i am exhausted with doctors. I told Dr. Peck's receptionist that changing my dose was something that could be done over the phone. The receptionist came back to me and said that the doctor needs to see me to change my RX. Having just seen her 2.5 months ago and being familiar with thyroid disease (9 years)I can pretty much see what is going on in my bloodwork and how the meds get tweeked so the office call was NOT necessary at that time. It is my opinion that she was after my "office" visit. I am not going to see her anymore.
