My experience with Peters Dermatology is always exceptional. The Physician Assistants, Medical Assistants , Receptionists and of course Dr. Peters are all fabulous. This is not just a Dermatology medical clinic providing excellent care to their patients but this is a family and what a blessing to know I am not just getting the best care I possibly could for my skin which is the largest organ of the body but I too feel like I am part of their family. I have never felt that I was not having my every dermatological need addressed or questions answered or options explained in detail. All the providers are incredible professionals and well trained. Peters Dermatology is not just the best Dermatology/ Mohs micrographic surgery Clinic in Bend, Oregon but I believe in the Northwest.

I was diagnosed with a basal carcinoma on my nose by one of Dr. Peters Physician Assistants who was amazingly thorough and provided answers to all my questions. It was explained to me that because of the location and size of my cancer my best option in order to spare tissue was Mohs micrographic surgery . I had the surgery and was given options of closure with a plastic surgeon. I chose to stick with Dr. Peters and because I had depth to the cancer I had a hole that filled in and Dr. Peters did a derm abrasion on the area to even everything out. I am so please with the my results. My wound took time to heal but I do realize my time in the sun for years on end was the cause and if it took time to get a cancer then I knew it would take time to heal as well. Dr. Peters and his entire staff are utterly amazing and I am so grateful that they are who take care of my skin!!!!!

I would not recommend, A PA took care of me. I never saw or met Dr. Peters. There were a few other trainees (?) through out my visit and procedure. I was diagnosed, a procedure followed, the end. 2nd opinion Then I saw Dr Jenson who was outstanding. He took time and answered my questions. Dr Jensen gave me options. He was genuine. I received samples from his PA David who gave me notes afterwards of recommended pruducts that may improve and keep my skin safe.

I was referred to Dr. Peters for a Mohs procedure. I cannot say enough about Dr. Peters and his staff!! I was treated warmly & professionally. Although there were other patients 'in line' for their procedures, Dr. Peters took a considerable amount of time to explain the procedure, what he would be doing, what to expect afterwards, etc. His confidence is paramount and assuring. No pain, no swelling = awesome in my book! I would highly recommend Dr. Peters for any future dermatology needs.
