Written Testimonials

AK TestimonialDear Doc P,
I had to make sure to thank you for your amazing healing powers! You have changed my life so much, my pain is now manageable & my migraines are GONE!!! I dreamt of that long & you & your magic made it happen. I can't thank you enough, you gave me my life back!
Thank you so very much,

I was referred to Dr. Peled after my physicians were unable to do anything permanent about the nerve pain I was experiencing in my lower leg. He performed a lengthy and careful examination and then let me know that he believed that the pain was caused by a compressed (pinched) nerve. Dr. Peled was careful to suggest that nothing was certain but that he felt strongly that decompression surgery would help to relieve the pain. Following the surgery, the pain persisted but Dr. Peled had suggested that it could take some time. Several weeks ago, I realized that there was no pain at all. I could not be happier with the result.

Dear Dr. Peled,

I'm sorry it has taken me so long to write you this letter.  I guess you could say I've just been very busy enjoying all the things that I have waited so long to do.  As you know, after injuring myself at work 3 years ago my life has been horribly altered.  I was unable to work, hardly able to get around onj my leg, and unable to do any of the things that I enjoyed.  On top of this, I was in constant physical pain.  My injury had taken a serious toll on me physically, financially and emotionally.  When I came to you, I had already had 2 surgeries that were unsuccessful and I was feeling pretty hopeless.  Now I'm happy to say that your surgery has given me back my life.  I have returned to work and all my favorite activities.  My life is better financially and emotionally.  All thanks to you.  Words cannot truly express all you have done for me.  I will be forever grateful.

Sincerely M D

This has been a miracle cure for me. I have been completely headache free since February, 2014. I had not gone more than a couple of days without a headache in over 25 years.
My life is so full. I continue to be grateful to Dr. Peled.

I wanted to take a minute and thank you and Dr. Peled. When we first came there, Baily was in so much pain that her eyes had started to loose their joy and sparkle. I was watching my daughter slowly change into someone I didn't know because of all the pain that she was suffering day in and day out. So many nights we spent in tears praying we would find answers and get her well. I want to thank you for giving me my daughter back. She is smiling, joking, laughing and being a teenage brat again :). Watching Baily go through this has been one of the hardest journeys of our lives and we are forever grateful that we found Dr. Peled and the answers we needed to get her back to being well.
Thank you!

I had this surgery performed in my temporal area last fall, and I am SO PLEASED with the results!  I still have chronic daily headaches but the severity has been SIGNIFICANTLY reduced, and the surgical area is 95% pain free.


When my husband was researching for someone and at this point anyone to relieve my debilitating migraines he researched for days.  I had seen every neurologist, every pain specialist, and every migraine specialist across the country with no luck.  I had tried EVERY procedure.  EVERY medication with no relief.  After my neurostimulator came out for the 30th time we had it.  That's when my husband came across peripheral nerve surgeons.  Like I said earlier after days and days of research on different drs. Dr Peled kept coming up.  He had great testimonials, lots of research and most of all he gave insight into what was causing the horrid migraines.  By this time I was back admitted to the hospital to control the pain of the migraines.  We got in contact with Cary-Anne Alvord Dr Peled's office manager and we found HOPE!   We were desperate but gun shy.  We Skype with Dr Peled and we were on a plane two days later.  I am happy to report that our research paid off.  It's been 5 months, 2 procedures and NOT one migraine.  It's a miracle.  Honestly had we not done the research and met with Dr Peled we would still be chasing an answer.  I've been so lucky to find such a kind, knowledgeable and understanding Dr.  If you suffer from migraines you MUST see Dr Peled.  He has changed my life and can certainly do the same for you.  Thank you Doc.  From your most grateful patient!


I had peripheral nerve decompression surgery done by Dr. Ziv Peled in San Francisco.  I am headache free.  I had one surgery done in October of last year and was probably 80% headache free.  I had a second surgery done in February of this year.  I am now headache free.  I suffered for so many years with migraines and the medications I had to take in order to function at any level.  I feel so good and so grateful.  My neurologist, who had become a friend over the years, would not even read the literature that I printed out for him regarding the procedure.  My daughter-in-law, who is a pharmacist, was the only one willing to thoroughly research the procedure.  It is because of her willingness to investigate something new and her encouragement, as well as my confidence in Dr. Peled, that I had the surgery.  There are no words to express my gratitude for the new lease on life that I have.   

It is so sad that people whose lives could be helped by this procedure are discouraged by their own  physicians. I think of this quote. "Contempt prior to investigation leaves a man in everlasting ignorance".  I am exercising, losing weight, planning events......doing all the normal things that one does without a headache or drugs or the fear of getting a headache. Thank you again for everything!!

Cary Anne and Dr. Peled,

I want to thank you both for all your help in making my life so much better! In SO many ways. Again thank you for making my life something I treasure and look forward to daily.


Dr. Peled,

This is just a small "Thank You" for all of your efforts in helping me to eliminate the daily pain I used to have. When we first met I was not in a good place mentally - I was discouraged and beaten-down. I am happy to say that is not the case any longer! I'm sure you know this already but you have given me hope that the pain is actually going away AND the negative thoughts I used to have (going far away from the Bay area to end my life) are gone... and I know for good. You saved my life and I hope you know how true that is. Whenever I tell anyone about you I tell them that you are the first doctor I've had that has the "Killer Combo"... you are uber-smart AND you genuinely care about your patients. As I've mentioned before, I am very fortunate and blessed that our paths crossed. I don't know where I'd be today without you. Take care and see you soon.


Thank You so much Dr. Peled. You have returned to me a great pleasure... the ability to walk...and enjoy it. The time test was a walk from Bondi Beach to Coogee. I didn't walk the whole thing but the 6 miles over the day only required a few rests. The important part... no pain and no night-time burning. I couldn't have enjoyed my vacation nor would I be able to keep a positive outlook without your help. Thank you doesn't seem to be enough!

R.R. A very appreciative patient!!

Dr Peled,

Thank you so much for your time this afternoon. I normally HATE sending "thank you" emails but I will see you in two days and wanted you to know how much of an impact your words had with me today. I really appreciate you taking the extra time to talk with me this afternoon. It meant a lot coming from you. I want you to know you are BY FAR the best doctor I have ever had. You have the killer combo of being super-smart AND you care about your patients. Thank you again for taking me on as a patient. I am so lucky our paths have crossed.

See you on Wednesday.
