I would not recommend him to anyone a dr that tries to put a 47 year old lady in a nursing home is not a good dr at all

Dr. Petersen is by far one of the best doctors I've seen in a long time. Primary care is a dying field as many new doctors just don't want to deal with it. Dr. Petersen is very friendly, thorough and attentive. Office staff and nurses are also amazing to work with. Highly recommend.
I would not recommend him to anyone, him and his staff have treated my mother very poorly, he started prescribing her medication that can't just be stopped and he turns around and told her he dose not feel comfortable prescribing them anymore. My mother has been through so much and him and his staff made is so much worse on her. I am disgusted that a DR can be like this to patients.

He seems to care sincerely but, he also beats around the cure to your problem. He will try many different paths leaving you in pain until you finally go outside the office to take matters into your hands. I have been giving stuff that he directly said to me won't help so in the end of my day it was a wasted visit and a waste to pick up the prescriptions which did more harm than good.

I just changed to Dr. Petersen on the recommendation of my VNA nurse. I loved the office and he did the most through exam I've had in a long time. The office staff is great and easy to work with.

Dr. Petersen is patient, attentive and thorough. I would recommend him to anyone, and as each of my children have outgrown pediatric care they have because me patients of Dr. Petersen as well, and they like him as much as I do.

Dr. Petersen is a doctor in assisted living. He rarely returns family member calls. And recently he did not treat an infection my mother had and she ended up sepsis in the ER, had a hospital stay and is in sub acute care to get her strength back. Older people with fragile health need to be treated cautiously.
