I've been seeing doctor Peterson for 10 years. He is amazing! Very straight forward and does not beat around the bush (which I love). Very knowledgeable with a great sense of humor.

I love Dr. Peterson! His nurse Kathy is amazing. They make me feel like family , and I know they care about me. We've cried and laughed together. I never feel rushed, they always take the time. I'm so appreciative of all they've done and continue to do for me. He is such a great teacher, and he walks you through everything. Paps are never comfortable, but I swear every time I have one, I say "what that's it?". He walks you through it so you know what to expect and I think that alone is all you n

I have yet to see DR. Peterson this review is strictly on his staff member Nadia. She is inept and has no knowledge of insurance processes and scheduling. Getting an appointment with her is like pulling teeth, she needs some additional training.
The most painful pap smear I have ever experienced!! That and he's ignorant, he tried telling me I should stop breastfeeding once my baby got teeth (he got teeth at 4 months). WORST doctor I have ever gone to!!!
