    Dr. Petersen is takes a lot of pride in his profession. He clearly explains the procedure from start to finish. His assistant, Alex, is very knowledgable and helpful. I had some concerns the day after surgery. Dr. Petersen and Alex promptly came to the hospital room.

    Shelly in Olney- I had three surgeries with Dr. Petersen, I consider him to be very skilled and knowledgable. He explained everything I wanted to know and was very generous with his time. My case was complicated and he did an outstanding job. Not only is he brilliant he's also kind and compassionate. I would never consider seeing another shoulder orthopedist. I would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

    He took the time to explain treatment options. Was thorough and not rushed. I had a reverse shoulder replacement five years ago with absolutely no postoperative pain! It is still perfect. So when I had a problem with the other shoulder I made an appointment with Dr. Petersen. He is a world-class surgeon. I would fly to Baltimore from anywhere in the world to have Dr. Petersen take care of me!

    I have already recommended Dr. Petersen to a friend of mine. Dr. Petersen was able to repair my fully torn shoulder muscle even after it had been declared "irreparable" by my first orthopedic surgeon. Under his care, I am now on the way to a fuller recovery than I might have otherwise achieved. Thank you, Dr. Petersen.

    I had a total shoulder replacement in 2013 and couldn't be happier. Good as new. Same total range of motion as before. Same/improved level of muscular strength.

    Dr. Petersen is a top notch doctor. He is thorough, patient, and a good listener. With three decades of broad and specialized experience to draw upon, Dr. Petersen's plan of care has proven to be successful each time I have turned to him for help. He is a Super Doc, and I wouldn't trust my care to any other orthopedic surgeon.
