Dr. D’Ortone was very straightforward with my assessment and listened to me. As far as initial visits go, I was very pleased. I left feeling more optimistic and hopeful that I was on the right path to recovery.” – Kassandre King

As I was walking up to enter the center, there was a staff member outside who greeted me with a smile and it didn’t stop there! All the staff were welcoming and pleasantly using kind words. It felt so inviting and comfortable. It seems as if I had been coming for years. Immediately I got a ” family oriented ” vibe. As I observed other patients coming in and out, they were indeed happy and then I met the doctor. Dr. Kenneth was soooo bubbly and caring. He had a genuine concern about my health. I’m extremely satisfied with my first visit and I would recommend everyone to this center if they needed help. The quality of service is beyond excellent!” – Tamirah Smith

I broke my 5th metatarsal bone on March 31, 2019 and I went to Jefferson’s Torresdale Hospital and was so lucky that I was taken care of by one of Dr. Peacocks interns. My bone was broke right in half so Dr Peacock had to operate on me. I have NEVER in my life meet such a wonderful man and such pleasant people that work for him!! I love his assistant Kristen, all of his staff are just wonderful!! I can honestly say that when I go to his office I have never sat in the waiting room for more than five minutes before I was seen by one of the staff. I still have several more weeks to go with the boot and crutches and I was having pain yesterday and he told me to come right in to see him and if I wasn’t there at closing time he would wait for me!!!! What a great Doc. I never write reviews but I just had to share that we all hate going to the Doctors but I’m so very lucky to have him taking care of me!!!!! He sure is one of a kind!!!!!” – Linda Creedon
