    Well he knows no matter what, he isn't liable for any damages because he is only "trying to fix someone elses Handy work."He knows there's a mesh problem and a market for removal. He will scare you into removal the same way they scared you into getting mesh. It's the same psychology. When he tells you that" if you've been having pain after 3 months you should get it out" ask yourself if that sounds right to go through a 2-3 year torturous recovery? You're going to think that mesh wasn't so bad.

    In my opinion and experience after contacting 7 people most of us are in serious and worse condition or have reherniated or was given a hernia for the first time after mesh removal and hernia repairs. It was not only difficult to deal with No Insurance Surgery but they put our lives in danger and damaged the well being of some of us. There is no aftercare here and the Valley View Surgery center is like a 3rd world VA facility with an unsanitary environment and a cattle call of a waiting room.

    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.

    We were referred to Dr. Petersen by a trusted physician we have known for years. Unlike other doctors we have spoken to his care was clear on the initial consultation phone 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.
