Ratings for Dr. Jeffrey Peereboom
First saw Dr Peereboom in June 2017 after having operation done by another surgeon in 2016. Was sent for MRI which showed numerous issues with my ankle which he said needed to be fixed by surgery, was told to have injection into joint for pain and comeback in 3 months. Followed his instructions and had injection for pain and saw him again 3 months later, to be told to have another MRI and comeback in 6 weeks. Followed his instructions again and saw him 6 months later in more pain then I first saw him. Was told I would need a moon boot to help ankle before any surgery would be done, so purchased a moon boot from him and was told to have more physio and comeback in 6 weeks. With the mounting cost of 2x MRI, injection into ankle joint, appointments and moon boot. I was told to again comeback in 6 weeks time. Followed his instructions, to be told by physio that I was wasting my time and money having physio and surgery needed to be done. My latest appointment with him lasted less then 5 mins, where I was told to continue going to physio, use moon boot and continue taking pain killers and comeback in another 6 weeks and will talk about what operations needs to be done. I got to the point where I couldn’t continue putting up with the pain anymore and I went to hospital emergency department in the GoldCoast, where I was given stronger pain killers and a referral to see orthopaedic surgeon on GoldCoast. Have since seen this surgeon and have been told that I need to have ankle fusion as ankle is out of line, making clicking sound when I walk, locks on me and is very painful. I’m now booked in for surgery on the GoldCoast. If you want to spend a lot more $$ then you need to and waste a lot of time, then go ahead and see this man, but if you don’t want to, then stay clear.
19 years ago this man removed 2 bits of bone from my ankle joint which had been causing me immense pain for years and nearly immobilising me at times. He thought it would last about 10 years if Iwere lucky before I'd need a fusion. 9 years past the 'use by date' and it's still pain-free and fully mobile. What better recommendation can there be than that. (He wasn't able to present the bits he took outto me in a bottle as a trophy because it was against the Mater's policy. Hmmm - whose bits were they??)
This man is the foot god. After fall ing over seven metres and exploding my angle as well as breaking just about every bone in my foot Jeffery put it back together again to the extent that after rehab I started running about four kilometres a day. This man is the best. Thank you Jeff Chris Stewart’s
Due to the nature of my injury I was offered an appt time at the end of that same day. As others have said I was impressed with Dr. Peereboom empathetic attitude. He took time to reviews the scans and patiently explain his determination and how he arrived at it. I have had other specialists that mistake themselves for God but Dr. Peereboom was the total opposite. My wife and I were both very pleased with the entire experience. Staff were also a pleasure.
Dr Peereboom is not a 5 out of 5, hes a 6 out of 5. The ladies at the front desk went above and beyond helping me. (inc telling me where to get FREE MRI scans (no out of pocket expenses)). Dr Peereboom spent time explaining through all my scans, answered my long list of questions and he clearly knows his field. Best of all, he was honest, I have a problem, but its not bad enough to operate ... yet. My local doctor has also had both her ankles fused through him and also says he is the best in Brisbane.
I had a calcaneocuboid fusion earlier this year. He is very knowledgeable and skillful. Friendly with a great sense of humour. There is no arrogance or anything negative about how he treated me. Very down to earth. He was very understanding and has great empathy. I had other specialist last year that treated me extremely badly, and were unsafe in their practice, causing more damage to my foot by their treatment. but Dr Peereboom has been the opposite. I highly recommend him.
