Dr. Peterson and his assistant listened to me as I explained my symptoms. They didn't try to convince me that an ovarian cyst was what was causing all my problems. Dr. Peterson fit me into his surgery schedule quickly.

Charlie Wolf in Orem, UT – Apr 14, 2016
To be completely honest I saw him for about 5 minutes at my initial appointment (more time spent with the PA, he's a surgeon so he's busy) and then maybe 5 minutes before the surgery... He was knowledgeable and kind during our brief interaction. That being said, my surgery went great and I'm healing well so I would call that a win.

Dr. Peterson and his staff were very knowledgeable about the procedure and explained what was going to happen very well. They sent me home with information about how to prepare for surgery and what to expect after surgery. They handled all the requirements with my insurance company.
