45 min past appointment time they called us back. Not acceptable. One assistant here has a good personality, the rest are severely lacking personalities. This is our 3rd or 4th visit here. Wouldn’t recommend.

The office has a very sterile, non- friendly off white look. No art, no color. All the nurses and technicians are dressed in some sort of butcher apron. Kinda freaky. Peterson has no people skills. None.

THIS DOCTOR LOOKS AT YOUR SKIN FROM A DISTANCE THAT COULD NOT EVEN SEE A THING. UNLESS HE IS AN X MEN WITH A VISUAL GIFT. I WENT TO CONSULT ABOUT SKIN MARKS IN MY FACE AND HE LOOKED FROM WHERE HE WAS STANDING ALL THE TIME....AT LEAST 13 FEET APART. HE SAW HEAVY ACNE AND INFECTION, TO WHICH HE RECOMMENDED A CREAM AND SHAMPOO!!! (ACNE WAS IN NECK AND CHEEKS)....NOT A DOCTOR TO RECOMMEND.

I waited for 50 mins before deciding to leave. It's unacceptable to make a patient wait that long. On top of that, when I told the receptionist I was leaving because I would not wait almost an hour to see a doctor, she had the nerve to ask if I wanted to reschedule. NOPE. Thanks for wasting my time.

Wonderful experience. He removed basal cell carcinoma from forehead. Two months later you can't even see scar where Mohrs surgery was and I don't need to wear makeup. No one can tell where I had this done. I was afraid I would have a scar and have to cover with makeup for life. Highly recommend.

I like Dr. Peterson because he and his staff seem very interested in helping and making patients comfortable. The waiting room is nice and even has free coffee! The office seems older but, to me, that means the medical care is more important than a fancy office with a wall fountain! If you want only cosmetic treatment he might not be your man. He's best for if you have REAL skin issues(melanoma) and he'll see you quickly. (I'm sure he is excellent with cosmetics too!)
