I was terribly afraid of surgery but dr Peterson made me feel at ease and he knew I wanted to put surgery off as long as possible. It was painful but the rewards are far greater. I’m walking with so much ease. On vacation, I walked more than anyone and kept going. Great man!!

The wait time before I got into the exam room was not long at all. Staff very friendly. Needed X-rays and didn’t have to wait very long for those either. Dr. Peterson explained exactly what was going on with my knees and the best solution to get me back as close to normal.

I had an arthroscopic surgery done in my knee and I had an all around awesome experience with all staff for my appointments and surgery! Staff are professional and super friendly! They were also able to accommodate me with squeezing me in to do blood work and EKG the same day since I live an hour away. Very impressed and will definitely recommend! So glad they are in network for my insurance!

Dr. Paul Peterson is a very personable Dr. He is very concerned about your well being and wants to get you back to being 100% healthy. He explains what to expect before and after surgery so there are no surprises. I would definitely recommend him for knee replacement surgery, he did a fantastic job on my knee. I will soon be living a normal life again in a few months.
