Literally the worst office and physician I have ever seen. During an emergency I called early in the morning and was promised by staff I would receive care (I even offered to go to the emergency room or urgent care if they couldn't get back to me), but no one ever reached out to me that day. I ended up having to receive emergency care. When I contacted the office the next day and asked for an explanation no one ever got back to me. No one has ever apologized, either. I would not recommend this office for anyone.

I've seen Dr. Peterson twice and have been happy with the level of care she provided. In my experience, general practitioners often downplay issues that cause pain or discomfort, give me the run-around, and think they know more about a certain condition I'm seeing a specialist for than the specialist does. Dr. Peterson doesn't do that; she takes my concerns seriously and seems to trust specialist expertise where relevant, which I think makes her a wonderful addition to my care team. She recently referred me for a minor surgical procedure, and the surgeon even remarked on Dr. Peterson's thoroughness regarding a condition about which GPs often make assumptions without doing an exam to verify.

I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Orozco-Peterson, MD and all of the top shelf staff at UCHealth Primary Care Clinic. I was treated with respect and kindness many times over. I would like to give special thanks not only to the doctor but also Carrie, Sandy, Nancy, Stephanie, Lily, Tiffany, Beth, and Tara. I certainly hope I didn't overlook anyone, because all of you are the BEST! It is comforting to know we have such caring individuals in Cheyenne for our healthcare needs.

Literally the worst physician that I have ever had the displeasure of doing medical business with. Dr. Peterson would not listen to the entire problem/reason for your visit before she repeatedly interrupted you with a premature diagnosis of the problem. Once I had hit my left foot so hard against a retaining wall at work that I needed medical attention without the emergency room price, so I elected to schedule a next day visit with her to inspect the damage. Before I was even half way through my
