Dr. Peterson has always made me feel like he is listening to my concerns and to what has and hasn't worked in past situations. He has taken care of my needs as my GP; but, he has referred me to others when he thought a specialist was in order. On one specific situation, he and I were both glad he had referred me when we were told that the procedure needed was surprisingly more invasive than the examining specialistanticipated. I hope I can have his ongoing care for quite some time!

Appointment was scheduled for 11:20. I was informed the doctor was running a little behind and there was another patient in front of me at 11:29. Knowing this, I was patient and waited until 12:00 to see what was going on. The hallways were clear and it appeared that everyone had gone to lunch. Once I finally found someone, the doctor came out of his office immediately. It appears that I was forgotten. It seems this could be simply resolved by walking the hall and making sure all exam rooms are clear before sitting down for lunch.

Since no single person is perfect and since I do not have an experience with all possible providers I can not say he is the best provider possible. I can say he is good, very good in this instance. He immediately established rapport even though he was nearly an hour late of the scheduled appointment (that says he was giving at least more than the allotted time allowed by the system for a consultation). That is a good thing!
