    Ophthalmologists of the country could take lessons from this gentleman. He is extremely professional, personable, knowledgeable and energetic. He answered all of my questions completely. His surgery gave me near perfect vision and, Oh yes, I forgot, the rumor is that he walks on water. I have not see this, but, I BELIEVE! TDM

    Dr. Peters performed cataract surgeries on both my eyes. He is a great doctor and surgeon and I highly recommend him. I would not go to any other eye doctor. If there is one caveat about him, it is that he tends to be speedy in office visits so you have to be ready with any questions you might have or he is already on his way out of the room. The office and staff are very nice.
