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!
