About Me

Care Philosophy

One must listen to understand. I believe in the old way medicine was practiced. You first listen, then examine and only then, do you, if necessary, do additional studies. I don't believe in blindly ordering a lot of studies without first listening .

What People Say About Dr. Patti Peterson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Peterson figured out what was wrong with me on my first visit to her. She explained exact areas of my spine that were damaged without even knowing about my injuries at that point. I have 7 fractured vertebrae from years before and just by testing nerves in certain areas she knew exactly where the injuries were. She had zero medical records to go by at this point. She then was able to diagnose me with temporal lobe epilepsy because of a few symptoms I was having.I had an EEG and she was right
