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!
