Escondido, CA |
Two visits both 45 minutes or more past my appointment time. Sorry after waiting the second time 50 minutes past my scheduled appointment I walked out. Poor customer service I will never go back!

Dr. Peterson was thorough in his examination of my hand and when he deemed it necessary, he operated on it. He performed the surgery almost 7 years ago and my hand is still performing as well as it did before I injured it. I work with my hands daily and he gave me back the full use of my left one. What a gift! He and I were talking at the height of the great recession and he said that he was thankful that he had a job. What a humble man and great surgeon.
