Extremely disappointed my choice of a sleep doctor. Wish the Dr. Peterson would respond in a timely fashion. Waiting for a week to have him respond to ResMed about adjusting my therapy. Took 2 weeks for them to send in the orders to begin with. Horrible experience. Staff seems good, wish the Dr. was responsive at all.

Dr Peterson is fantastic. He is straightforward and explains things in laymen terms that are easy to understand. Spends as much time with patient as we needed. Never felt rushed. Has a great “bedside” manner. And, he has a good sense of humor.

This doctor failed to send my complete Sleep Study report to my CPAP supplier so the insurance denied coverage. Took 2 months for his office to fax needed information. Last visit e didn't even have a report about how effectively it was CPAP working. He would not simply sign up-easy-to get reports. Changed doctor. Pressure settings and CPAP Mode were wrong. I am finally doing much better. Would not ever recommend Dr. Peterson. Waste of time and money.
