Dr Peterson is a gem! He took careful time to explain my sons condition explaining things well and answering ALL questions we had. I have reached out to colleges in the medical field asking their opinion of Dr Andrew Peterson and he was highly regarded in the medical community which is why we initially went to see him.

Dr. Peterson was a careful clinician who took the time with my daughter to treat and diagnose her with EDS. He is a brilliant mind and pays close attention to details other doctors missed in the past. He has excellent support staff and diagnostic skills.

This doctor is fantastic! After being to a number of doctors over a 2 year period I was extremely frustrated. It took 1 appt with Dr Peterson to find out I had restless leg syndrome. My quality of life has greatly improved since then.

In my opinion, Dr. Petersen is very knowledgeable regarding his discipline. I found his bedside manner to be aloof and callous. He spoke to me after my car accident for maybe all of two minutes before leaving. He tended to be flaky, always sending me to someone else when he couldn’t make our appointments. I felt that I wasn’t worth his time. I rate him two stars instead of one because he did reach out to me at a critical moment that did save my life.

Dr. Peterson spent so much time discussing my mom's condition with us. There were even times when I had called the office where he called back instead of the nurse! I feel like he very much cares about how my mom is doing. I highly recommend Dr. Peterson!
