I first began seeing Dr. Peter's advertisements in the local paper, Desert Sun, and because I have been suffering with severe neuropathy for over 18 years and this ad mentioned that he could provide me with relief, obviously I was intrigued!

It was actually quite some time that I decided that I could no longer continue devouring medications, 540mg Neurontin and 400mg Tramadol, and still not be able to wear shoes or even get to sleep without downing sleeping pills, I felt that I needed to at least go in and have a listen to what he might have to say.

Well, the news sounded great, he told me that he could get me off of my medications and I would never need to use them again after his treatments! He said that he was the expert in neurology and that he knew exactly what I was dealing with after his associate gave me a neurologic exam.

I paid my $3,500.00 and began treatments 3 times per week for a total of 12 visits, all of the time reporting on his sign-in sheets that I was feeling just as much pain as I had the previous times. For some reason this did not prompt any intervention by Dr. Peters, to that point I had only been dealing with a tech who attached a couple of electrodes and after some time had me move to a room where I was to sit with my legs in a machine that would apply pressure to my calves and another couple that would just vibrate my feet as placed on some sort of plate.

Finally, I told the staff that I NEEDED a consult with the Doctor as I was still feeling as I had my first day, and in fact I had been given zero nutritional counseling as he told me that I would when I first saw him prior to paying his fee!

Needless to say, I did not consult with my regular Neuro doc, but during this time of treatment I did get in to see him and he told me in no uncertain term that there were no known treatments that would work as I described to him what Dr Peters had me doing. I had asked Dr. Peters to consult with him by phone, yet when I asked my neuro doc if this had happened, he said that he had not been contacted!

I will say that I have tried every known treatment, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, massage, and more different medications that I can go into here! I wish that I had been told up front that this treatment was only a "let's TRY and see if it will work and if not, too bad" doctor/patient relationship! I am still on the hook for the payments for this and I have seen ZERO results!

Patient beware. I went to Dr Peters' presentation on neuropathy, listened to his spiel and went today to see if I could benefit from his treatment. Too long to go into here, but suffice it to say, this man is arrogant and after what felt like a verbal assault from him, he decided that I would not be accepted as his patient. Initially I felt rejected but after I thought about his office and his manner, I thought that it all worked out for the best. There is something fishy going on here with this man and his practice. I felt dirty after meeting with him and as I told him, I have talked to many doctors and none left me feeling as bad and as defensive as he made me feel. After reading the other review here, I know that I am now glad that I will not be writing a check for $3500 dollars for some foot massages. BE CAREFUL, PEOPLE.

The same thing happened to me in 2010.   The guy is a quack!  $4000.00.....for nothing.
