Dr Peterson is an excellent doctor. I feel at ease discussing my concerns with him and he takes the time to listen and address my issues. we switched to him after Little River Healthcare closed where my husband and I had a great doctor. Dr Peterson has exceeded all of our expectations and made our transition to a new doctor much less stressful. I told my sister how great he was when her long time doctor at Scott and white retired and she is now using him as well
