What People Say About Dr. Joseph Petersen, MD
Reply
Rude and total lack of compasion towards patient and family members. I'd also like to mention his poor bed side manners name calling and big headed egotistical person let alone professional medical doctor. I am strongly advising others to research his background and recommend finding another surgeon who's interested in your true health and recovery and don't look through his nose at you or as if you are nothing but $$. Others will voice how he is and has been in his whole 36 years of practice...
