I was convinced by this Doctor that I needed my mesh removed. I would be pain free and back working. This surgery made me many times worse.More and worse nerve damage to my legs.And more health issues..He was zero help after this fiasco..Years later still zero improvement.Don't get sold on false hope.Then find out you are totally disabled by this brutal surgery.I am also out a lot of money..Only to be made much worse..

Im my personal opinion and experience Dr Peterson took our money with out performing the surgery. My husband could not have the surgery so he canceled it and then he kept the cash money and said we would have a credit for us later like it was some department store or a walmart. We begged him because we needed it back and he finally sent a check then it bounced!..This is not acceptable.

Was referred to Dr. Petersen by a trusted physician we have known for years. Unlike other MDs we have spoken to his care was clear on the initial consultation call. He did not push for surgery but actually gave us suggestions for alternate routes we should explore first and if we were not satisfied we could come to see him. He even gave us places to go and a prescription for an ultra sound to get a second opinion. He told us if we decided to do surgery locally what to look for.
