Dr. Peters performed my partial thyroidectomy in 2014 via UAB higlands, and I recommend him to anyone within network if you have thyroid issues. Especially if one needs surgery! He is very knowledgeable in the field and made a clean incision and it healed well. I convalesced well at home and doing well in 2016.
