      Personable, knowledgeable, caring, kind, respectful of my feelings, input & my concerns. Dr. Peterson and Dr. Klenner, his assistant, are very high quality individuals. Very, very experienced in their area of the body that hey work with. They run/work in a very well organized and extremely well run clinic with high quality staff form top to bottom. I would recommend anyone to use this team for your health care needs.

      He goes above and beyond. He listened and tried to figure out the problem I was having. He never once acted like he was better than everyone else like many docs I've had in the past. He gave me my life back and helped me when no one else would.

      Doctor Peterson and his Nurse Ryan are amazing providers! I had a reconstructive surgery on my knee and it healed up as expected and know I'm back to my normal activities without daily pain.

      Dr. Peterson is always focused on my condition, while remaining personable and attentive. He discusses the range of treatments, when available, and doesn’t sugar coat the reality of a condition. After receiving treatment late last year, I’ve recovered into a better quality of life. This most recent visit finds me needing surgery on a different area and I’m looking forward to the experience! I know I’m in competent and skilled hands.

      I had rotator cuff surgery 4 months ago and I’m ecstatic with the outcome! I have more functional movement and strength than pre-surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Peterson for your orthopedic needs.

      On January 6, 2020, Dr. Peterson performed a knee replacement to my left knee. His bedside manner and genuine concern for my recovery was so refreshing. Him and Ryan, his PA did nothing but give personal care and interest is how I was feeling, explaining the recovery process and establishing a therapeutic regimen to get me up on my feet and performing at a standard above and beyond my expectation. Because of their high professionalism and care, I am walking better than before and after 8 weeks, very little discomfort. I thank Dr. Peterson and his staff for such a tremendous job. I am 66 years old and feel like I am 40 again. With their help I am confident I will be able to run/treadmill and enhance my quality of life. I am an athlete and marathon runner who relies on my ability to enjoy workouts. Thanks to Dr. Peterson I am on elliptical, bike and working to running again. Thank you Doc and Ryan for all that you have done.
