She has helped me for the past several months in managing my PCOS. She is now helping me through my first pregnancy. I can not say enough wonderful things about this women. She does an amazing job explaining everything and has a great down to earth personality. I feel like I am actually talking to a person and I don't feel silly when asking questions.

I found her bedside manner extremely poor. I saw her for several years as a young woman. She was very rude to me on a couple of occasions, most notably when she coldly informed me of a pregnancy loss. She recommended a DNC, and then her office coded it as a voluntary abortion. I found that out months later when my insurance kept denying the claim. Medically i would rate her just average, but would not recommend her to anyone.

Dr Kristi Petersen did my hysterectomy years ago and has delivered 2 of my grandchildren. Not only is she intelligent but she is kind and caring. I wish more doctors were more likely her.
