Dr Petersen is an excellent doctor, plus a very kind and generous person. Dr Petersen has performed many laser and cosmetic treatments over the past seven years. Dr Petersen is a highly skilled and thorough doctor. I trust and appreciate his skills so completely that I travel from Columbus, Indiana to St Louis for my Affirm laser and Sculptra treatments. Dr Petersen removed scars and many years off my face. I am sixty-one, but I look much younger!

I was referred to Dr. Petersen by my naturopath for a fungal infection and eczema. After working with a different dermatologist who wrongly diagnosed it as only eczema, I was happy to be under the care of a competent dermatologist...who is obviously passionate and knowledgeable in his field. Dr. Petersen exhibited a down-to-earth, caring attitude while obtaining excellent patient history, assessment, diagnosis, and care. Dr. Petersen and his staff are friendly, well-mannered, and competent.

I went in for body check and he told me I needed a blue light treatment on my face. He said that I would be red for a few days. I scheduled a day off work. I missed work for nothing! The result...brought out dark brown spots on my face! On first visit, they completely messed up my insurance. Outrageous (follow up visit fee.)...(which of course wasn't covered) Office staff inappropriate dress. Completely dissatisfied with the whole experience.

Dr. Peterson did surgery on me and I can only say he is excellent. His nurse was the best and totally was what every patient should have assisting. Thank you!!!

Dr. Peterson left me on the table for two hours after being numbed, meanwhile I heard him laughing and talking outside in the hallway for most of that time. His nurse came and apologized a few times. But he didn't when he came in. After completing the procedure, he forgot to stitch my open wounds up, which the nurse was also surprised about. When I called to say how displeased with how I was treated, he berated me and even hung up on me. I would never recommend this Doctor to anyone.

My experience with the doctor was fine, but dealing with his billing department has been totally frustrating. They are inaccurate and, more importantly, utterly unresponsive to both our letters and our many phone messages pleading for someone, anyone, to call us back. I will voice my unhappiness with the referring physician and never refer anyone to Dr. Peterson's practice solely because of my miserable experience with his incompetent billing department.

He is one of the most caring people I have ever met! Aside from the fact that the man is a genius, he is just a great guy. Smart is an understatement. My whole family is in the medical field, well in fact 5. No boring with any details but I know this guy is talented and one of the most compassionate docs out there. He has treated my mother for 12 years! She has pyoderma gangrenosum; Sounds gross because it is.This man treats people from all over the world and for good reason. No one is better.
