Patient Comments (10)
in South Bristol, NY |
My total experience with Dr Peter and his staff was first class. From the receptionist to his nurse to Dr. Peter himself, I was treated with respect and dignity. My time waiting in the reception area was minimal and taken on time. Dr. Peter throughly explained everything that was going to happen and answered all my questions. It was refreshing to have a Doctor take his time and not make me feel as if he were rushed but really cared.
in Stanley, NY |
Dr. Peter has an excellent bedside manner. He explains what the procedure entails and answers any questions you ask, in a manner that you can understand. I would, and have, recommended him to someone else.
in Uniontown, OH |
I had the fortune of having Dr Peter perform my emergency surgery on me. He was very informative and upfront informing me of my situation and what needed to be done. He has excellent pre-op and post op manors and his time estimates was right on target. Explains the procedure very detailed and has excellent bed side manors. He truly cares about his patients. We had a long trip home and his follow up call to make sure the trip well good was truly special. You would be lucky to have him as a doctor

It is rare that you might come across a doctor like Dr. Peter. Dr. Peter is dedicated, and knowledgeable when it comes to taking care of and treating pilonidal abscess problems. If this is a problem that you have you should take the time to see Dr. Peter! He is caring, honest and went above and beyond for my son. If this is a problem you have, you know that it can be a reoccurring problem. We found Dr. Peter after much research on this topic! We are very thankful for his great care!

Jeffery smithe. Dr Peters saved my life I had peptic ulcer that burst . Great bed side manner . Would recommend to anyone who wants to feel comfortable with surgeon lucky to have at THOMPSON HOSPITAL.
in Gorham, NY |
I have had three surgeries by Dr Peter. I have always felt that I was in the best hands possible. His bed side manor is the greatest. he always spoke in words that I could understand when he was explaining what procedure was going to be done. I have never had any issues when anyone that works with or for him. I hope he stays in this area for a long time.
in Canandaigua, NY |
I would highly recommend Dr. Peter to friends, family, etc. I was referred to this office by my primary physician for a cholecystectomy. Before and after surgery, the staff, as well as Dr. Peter, were friendly, courteous, and always willing to answer any questions I had. Definitely an awesome surgeon and staff. Overall, I had a great experience!
in Macedon, NY |
Dr. Peter is a excellent surgeon. He did three different surgeries on me in the last year. He explain everything to me and took time to talk to me about my surgeries. He even took time to speak to me about my weight problem and thanks to him I have lost a total of 114 pounds. I have recommended Dr. Peter to my sister and my mother who have both had surgeries by Dr. Peter Thank you Dr Peter for everything
Ft Smith, AR |
Dr. Peter himself is fine, however due to his office staff I will not be recommending anyone to him nor will I or my family member be returning as patients. When you call about a surgery Dr. Peter performed the staff doesn't ask about symptoms doesn't ask any questions, doesn't look up the patients chart nothing literally says there is nothing we can do. Not one recommendation not let me speak to a nurse or him just pretty much take your business else where so that we will!!
