Dr. Peterson performed both of my hip replacements. From the initial diagnosis, he did a great job laying out the options. Since I’m still in my 50’s it was an easy decision to move forward once the discomfort got too great. When I decided to have surgery, I brought SO into appointment so that we could get all of our questions answered. The surgery and recovery went well, with a planned hospital stay both times. I felt so well looked after by Dr. Peterson, the staff at the clinic, and everyone at the Swedish surgical center. I would highly recommend Dr. Peterson.

Dr. Peterson is very knowledgable, compassionate, and down to earth. He's the type of person you'd like to have as your BFF. I cannot speak highly enough about him. I tore my meniscus a few years ago, and he was my surgeon. He thoroughly explained the procedure, and follow up care, and it couldn't have gone more smoothly. Recently I started to have new knee pain. He is working with me, and helping me to understand all of my options. I am so thankful to have him as my doctor.

I highly recommend Dr. Peterson. I had knee arthroscopy where I could barely walk due to pain. I am 2 weeks out and am nearly 100% already! Dr. Peterson has outstanding bedside manner to complement his surgical skills. He went through all the options and made his recommendation. I agreed with his choice, and am thankful for such an excellent result.

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.
