Always had an appointment. Almost no wait. Staff very pleasant. Dr. Peterson always spent ample time with me to discuss the tests performed there & discuss my health.

Accurate diagnosis of my heart problem But after my surgery Dr Peterson was slow and ineffective treating my post surgery problems Very flippant attitude about serious issues Staff was in disarray having my medical issue confused with another patient Having my appointment times wrong One of the nurses has a very arrogant attitude and hung up on my spouse who was reporting a problem I was having
Signed by someone in Atlanta, Ga. We are located in Fairhope, Al. Not a surgeon; therefore must be posted in error. We have always had GREAT, SUPER RATED employees and this office has never, ever been in disarray, much less being rude or arrogant. If you will note all other reviews, I think it is self explanatory that these remarks/review were accidently posted to Craig Raymond Peterson, M. D. in ERROR.

Dr. Peterson helped me when I was in cardiac distress. Three stents later and several years later, he continues to be my trusted cardiologist and his staff are always the best!
