Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Doesn’t respect patients. Wait is too long to get an appointment and then gets cancelled.

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!
