Dr. Peterson was very helpful. He listened to my history and asked questions. He certainly paid attention to my answers. I felt confident than his plan to proceed was a good one. I needed to follow up with the office because the DME provider had not responded to the doctor's referral. The office was very helpful and solved this right away.

Dr. Peterson is a very talented and dedicated doctor. He is great with follow through and remains accessible for questions. His affect is very clinical, but that's often the case with highly skilled doctors. I highly recommend him.
