Zero Stars If I Could

This man treated my wife like she was nothing. She had a procedure done on her foot, constant pain for months, wore a boot for months. Went to see him a couple of months ago was told that she was "non-compliant" and that it was all her fault. He made her feel so bad, that she called me at work crying. We have small kids and for anyone who knows, about impossible to stay on the couch all day. She went to the ER last week and found out that she has a fracture. Made another appointment today and asked me to come because she was so afraid of him, honestly how do you employ a doctor that makes their patients afraid of them? As we sat there, he chastises her about the break, says because she smokes and is non-compliant he will do nothing for her. She asks him several times what "non-compliant" means, his response "I'm not repeating myself to you anymore!" I then ask because I want to know, he finally says, she's on it too much, doesn't wear her splint, misses appointments, smokes. Well, she did wear her boot, we have three small kids with one requiring a lot of additional attention, missed an appointment because our youngest was rushed to Children's Hospital that day, and yes she should quit, but that didn't break her plate. His response, I don't care about your personal life. So now my wife is walking around with this, he won't do anything about it. What a guy!

Have been to see Dr. Mcpeake twice, done xrays and heard suggestions about self-theraphy. Last visit I had an injection which lasted around 2.5 months for pan (low pain). Was curious what he felt after seeing me-what would he recommend as far as success percentage in surgery procedure, what he would do, or just his general thoughts. Do I need to just tolerate difficulty in walking or have it corrected. My birthdate is Feb. 2, 1949. Thank you for the time, William L. Hengar

What A Joke

I went to KOC due to problems with both feet.. Upon checking in they asked me my problem and I told them.. I waited for one hour and thirty minutes.. The staff that took me back was rude, and when Dr Mcpeake came in, he was the rudest doctor I have ever seen.. Before seeing him they took xrays of both feet. When he came in, he only looked at one. I told him about my other foot and he said it was probably an old fracture.. I've never had a fracture in either foot.. I would not even take my dog to see him.. With all these low ratings and complaints, what is wrong with you people to even keep him on staff..

Would not recommend

Extremely rude throughout. I was injured while deployed overseas. After surgery I now have more pain than before. I was first denied physical therapy and was just told it would work itself out. After a month and it didn't I was then granted physical therapy. After only three visits I asked for more and was told "no I'm not military, I don't care, I'm done seeing you, I don't play these games" I would never recommend. So, now he made me worse off than before and I need to go find a new doctor.

Ridiculous waiting time

I had appointment with Dr McPeake and after waiting for 1.5 hours and to be told there are still patients ahead of you I decided to switch clinics. I understand that schedules can fall behind but if it seems to be the common thing every time you go there maybe the doctors should schedule less patients.
