Dr. Petro, medically speaking, is a good doctor. However I found his attitude to be very condescending and dismissive. As an RN for 20+ years I have worked very closely with doctors. It is possible to have the whole package in one medical professional. I want a relationship with my doctor to be one of respect from both sides. Please treat me as a person that does possess a brain and also treat me with the same respect you want from me. Dr. Petro is medically speaking a good doctor... just don't expect to be treated with respect or as if your own concerns regarding your health are valid.

Dr. Petro is one of the best doctors I had in my 69 years. He's very smart and good at his job and has a quick wit about him that puts patients at ease. We need more doctors like him.
