This is probably the only doctor's office I go to that has such excellent service. I hardly ever have to wait even five minutes before I'm called back. The entire staff is friendly. Dr. Peterson personally goes over any test results the same day. This doesn't happen in any other doctor's office that I use. I often have to call and chase down test results with others.

I had pleasant experience with Dr. Peterson. He does testing in his office on your first visit and he reads the result before you leave that day. His staff is great. NO nurse practitioners. I when to him because I was treaded so rude at Cardiology Associates. Plus you had to wait a week or more just to get tested there. .. I highly recommend Dr Peterson

I drive 3 1/2 hours to see this doctor. Not only is he an amazing cardiologist with a state of the art office, but his staff from check-in to check-out is top notch. There is never a wait and the professionalism is perfection. Being a healthcare marketing director, I would advise all doctors and medical staffs to learn from this practices example.

After moving here a few years ago from Ny to Lillian, Al we were concerned about finding a cardiologist like we had up north. Dr Petersen is a very attentive, warm, down to earth but very professional doctor. He explains things with patience, understanding and gives no feelings of being rushed. My husband and I see him at least twice a year for our cardiac issues. The testing performed is appropriate, and done in the office. The office is set up great and we experienced everything in a timely, organized manner. The staff is excellent at front desk, during appointment and testing.
