Horrible customer and overall medical service. Extremely unhappy with the services we received from Dr. Aaron Peterson and his team. He was unwilling to work with us in any way to make it right. I feel completely robbed of our money. Avoid Dr Peterson and Premier Family Medical for any dermatology...more
