Dr. Peterson has provided me with urology care for the past several years and has been a champion of early detection of prostate issues with me. He is a top-notch DaVinci Robotic surgeon and his skills as a surgeon and urology specialist are the best in the state.

NO personality, or bed side manners .ask why I did not use Tears for dry eyes,I said I did not know to. She said everybody knows to, I had not ever been told to use it. She told me three times everyone knows to use it just like chap stick.

Preliminary testing was boilerplate. However very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr Klair seemed uninterested unless I needed surgery (which I do not), and borderline rude, making comments of my weight. I hope there will be another ophthalmologist available next year
