Dr E. Peterson is a very caring and thorough Doctor. He did partial knee replacement surgery for me last year. I can not Thank him enough for the wonderful work he did for me. He worked with me to do what would work best for me, trying different things before surgery. I would recommend him to anyone who has orthopedic issues and if I need, I will go back to seek his care.
