Between us my wife and I have had 4 surgeries with Dr. Peters. I wouldn't trust anyone else. He's an excellent surgeon. Great bedside manner and great dry sense of humor. All of the providers at CHRIAS with Dr. Peters are wonderful. It's a shame his office staff is HORRIBLE. Worst staff I've ever encountered. They answer the phone 30% of the time or less. It's very hard to get an appointment and I've never ever ever had anyone call me back. It's a shame great doctors are hindered by bad staff.

I have been a patient of Dr Peters since 2006 when I had Gastric bypass surgery. I weighed 340lbs and I now weight 120lbs.I have kept the weight off for going on 11yrs. Dr. Peters is the best in my books. We have had a few hick- ups over the years (@ no fault of his or my bypass, just unrelated medical problems)and he has been there for it all. He is so very kind and very compassionate. He takes his time with you and explains things in laymen's terms. Not once has he intimidated me.
Explained everything so that I understood. Great bedside manner.
