I feel that a little more time could've been spent regarding my needs. We didn't address one of the symptoms of concern because we were discussing so many other issues that I was not aware of that I completely forgot one of the issues I came in for. Overall I think she will be a good PCP.

Excellent care. First time I've seen dr Peterson and it was a very good experience. The only problem I had was scheduling an appointment as it's the season for ailments and I understand that but that wasn't a problem just a little inconvenient.
