This is the first Doctor in my 49 years of living that truly showed a genuine care and concern for my Holistic health (both physical, mental, and emotional). Dr. Valerie Peterson made it very easy for me to talk with her about my holistic care needs. I didn't feel like "just another number", she truly made me feel welcomed and that I had her full attention during our scheduled visit. Thank You Dr. Peterson

Have been going to her for a long time. She has done a great job with me and works well with my pain management and oncologist in watching my blood work. She sends my Oncologist and my Pain Management my blood work and my Oncologist sends her my blood work. She keeps in line.
