Dr Petersen is wonderful! He is always cheerful and pleasant. The Dr always listens and genuinely seems to care. He takes extra precautions when prescribing meds, makes sure it is safe with all other meds. He is one of the best doctors I have ever had.

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.
