Ratings for Dr. William T. McPeake
Rudest doctor I have ever seen. Will not listen, leaves the room to take a phone call. Tells the patient they are "non-compliant" after their surgery but instead of explaining what that means yells that he's not going to repeat himself anymore. Blamed smoking for the break and refused to do any more until stop smoking. Made my wife cry at her last visit because he made her feel so bad for having three kids and being on her feet. I had to accompany her today just so she would go, everything I had not to knock him off his stool, then the nerve to try and charge us? I have seen dogs treated much better then this guy treats women. He has an attitude of "I'm a doctor and you are nothing!"
Simple symptoms of a much bigger problem were missed by Dr. McPeake and staff. Extremely poor experience from top to bottom. Wait times are enormous, easily upwards of 2 hours. Patients are double and triple booked. Your time with the doctor will be treated the same, as soon as you get in prepare to be hurried out.
Dr. McPeake did surgery on my ankle about four years ago for a tendon repair. In the beginning he comes across as strictly business which throws a lot of people off. But after seeing him several times he became very open and friendly. He did an excellent job on my ankle and you can barely see a scar. I highly recommend him.
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.
I sincerely doubt the other reviewers comments. I have seen Dr. McPeake for an issue regarding debris lodged in my tendon after stepping on a nail. He is very knowledgeable and considerate. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a foot and ankle specialist.
I learned a lesson...Why I didn't check the web before seeing a new Doctor I can't explain. However when i did check out Dr McPeak and read the first review I thought, "have I already written this review and forgotten it?" I will never go back to see this guy again. I would rather go to UT Veterinarian Hospital. We have been there before many times and I feel a lot more comfortable with their ability and bedside manner. I went in to see Dr McPeak with a foot problem...I assumed it was broken...He had me diagnosed without even listening to my problems or what caused it. He even questioned the care I was getting from my General Practitioner .....He told me that my foot couldn't be fixed and if it didn't heal it may have to be taken off....I left scared and concerned!!!!!! However I got a 2nd and 3rd opinion and both Drs said who told you that????We can fix it...Will not be easy but we sure will not take your foot. Sure wished I had read reviews or went to UT Vet school first...It would have caused less trauma. Oh...By the way...this guy has without a doubt the worst bedside manner I have ever seen...I probably would have had a lower opinion of his knowledge and care had I gotten to spend more time with him...maybe 1 minute the first visit...5 minutes the second.....I doubt Dale Carnegie would take him in a class. Go if you like but buyer beware. This guy scares me.....
Dr. Mcpeake, along with his staff, are the most arrogant, rude, disrespectful, unprofessional people I have ever experienced in my life. Mcpeake has the worst bedside manner, his staff are extremely hateful and he doesn't listen to his patients. I have a broken ankle and he spent less than 2 minutes with me, and that is combined in two visits. The way he handled my foot and ankle left me in extreme pain. He has the personality of a dial tone and was a complete and total ass. I am canceling my appointment with him and going to a different orthopedic doctor with another group.
Dr. McPeake performed ankle fusion on my left ankle and I have had great relief from the pain I was having. I am well pleased with the results of the surgery! I actually had no pain even the day after surgery. I highly recommend Dr. McPeake.
