My child is adopted and retained his Medicare. At some providers there appeared to be a difference in the care my child received. I never felt that way with Dr Peterson, I always felt we were receiving the very best care with Dr. Peterson.

Dr. Peterson has been nothing but great to my son. My son has had to have two eye surgeries on both eyes. We have been seeing Dr. Peterson for about six years now. He and his staff are great. Loving and caring!
