What People Say About Dr. James Peterson, MD
The BEST doctor I have had in a very long time! He listens, gives the patient a chance to explain, evaluates and is caring and supportive. Would highly recommend. I had this doctor as my primary care and when he went into palliative care, he then became my palliative care doctor.
