Dr. Peterson is a surgeon that actually listens to his patients. He just doesn't rely on xrays and MRI results only but he listens to the patient describe their quality of life due to their condition. I had partial knee replacement done at their surgical center in Walingford. Was impressed with the surgical team. They took very good care of me and my husband was extremely impressed with their surgical unit. My recovery is going well and I'm already walking with slight use of a cane 2 weeks post op. I saw 4 different surgeons before I went for a second opinion with Dr. Peterson. I was so impressed by Dr. Peterson, I chose him to do my surgery over the other surgeons.

Dr. Peterson was excellent for my spouse's total knee replacement in 2015, but also for my knee replacement in June 2019. He listens to questions and concerns giving great advice and choices. He is non-judgmental. He was an easy choice for my knee workup and open to alternatives before my knee replacement surgery. He does surgery Swedish-Ballard campus which had great nursing care and follow through. My postop course recovery been steady and successful. I recommend Dr. Peterson and his team.

Hi Doc, It was a pleasure to have such a "good visit" with a doctor. You were present, friendly, precise and explained my situation to me patiently. It does puzzle me that some duffus diagnosed me with arthritis five years ago when there was none......ho-hum. I will follow up with Dr. Petersen. Thank you for the recommendation. I have been reading "How Healing Works" by Wayne Jonas MD. It's enlightening. Check it out. Have a memorable Thanksgiving! My best, Wendlyn Ehrman

The best doctor EVER. My brother recommended Dr. Peterson to me (he’s had four surgeries with him and my sister in law has had one with him as well) and I’m sure glad he. He is AMAZING.
