I recently had two surgeries with Dr. Peterson. One emergency and a subsequent second surgery, performed at Boone Hospital in Columbia, MO. I can honestly say that she is extremely knowledgeable, kind, and compassionate! Yet at the same time did not "sugar coat" the situation I was dealing with. She took the time to explain in detail every step we would be going through, and what I could expect. When seeing her for follow up appointments, she was prepared for our visit, and was very professional and informative about future tests and visits. I am truly thankful to have her taking charge of my care!

Terrible experienced. Misdiagnosed. Waited 2 weeks to let us know that would not be able to operate on my husband & she needed to make referral to a specialist. Took an inappropriate amount of time in making the referral and was hostile on the phone when I called to check on the referral. My husband died of cancer. Would the 3-4 week delay made any difference if it would have been diagnosed correctly & referral made promptly. We will never know.

Dr Petersen fixed what my other doctor mess up. Sepsis had set in and emergency surgery was performed in the middle of the night. Dr. Petersen took out a small portion of my intestines and left the wound open. I received the utmost care and I would fully recommend Dr Petersen. She's very professional.

I had a lumpectomy on July 24. Before scheduling the surgery, Dr. Peterson patiently explained to me what the procedure was, also the probable outcome and treatment to follow. She was professional and I felt confident in her ability to take care of me.

Had complications from general surgery years before. Dr. Peterson was not interested in helping me with them. Was only interested in anything new that may have developed.

After a horrible surgical experience 5 years ago that left me with many problems that no physician could treat, we found Dr. Petersen . She has been the one to treat me like a human and not like a drug seeker. She performed exploratory surgery and found the problem no-one else could. Surgery was just 2 days ago and I already feel better then I have in 5 years. She gave me my life back.
