I was surprised at how long Dr. Peterson spent with me asking questions and explaining things. I\'ve been to doctors who seem not to take your concerns seriously or act as if some of your concerns are foolish. Dr. Peterson seemed genuinely concerned and wanted to immediately check everything instead of scheduling tests down the road.
