An excellent and compassionate doctor this is truly a genuine and humble and caring person. Great at listening and answering questions and at explaining the condition and treatment options as well.

He held our hand with such care and sensitivity through our Father's terminal cancer as if we were his own family members. My Father received so much comfort from this doctor that it put us at peace with his condition. -Thank you Dr. Petrus, we are forever grateful!-

I liked Dr. Petrus once I met him. He seemed to be a good guy... answered my questions, friendly, knowledgeable. The problem was the woman I met BEFORE he came in the room. A pharmacist... can't remember her name. Condescending, patronizing, ugh... I couldn't wait to leave. I need the services...more
