Dr. Peterson really listens to his patients. I was extremely nervous about being put to sleep for surgery and he was absolutely amazing and stayed by my side until I was asleep. Dr. Peterson is a class act with bed side manners like NO other doctor.

Great surgeon, would 100% recommend him. However be prepared to deal with his office staff who is condescending, rude and controlling. It’s unfortunate that such a great Dr is assosciated with such poor workers.
