Dr. Peterson is extremely helpful, professional and personable! He treats you as if you were his own personal family. His care and surgery skills are immaculate. After being under his care, I personally wouldn’t want any other surgeon working on my joints!

Dr. Peterson and his staff are very warm and friendly. My wife and I have both gone to him for multiple concerns through the years: knees, elbows, shoulders. My wife’s surgery a few years ago went very well, and most recently, I went in for a knee badly injured in a bicycling accident. He very gently checked it and determined I had a partially torn MCL and ordered an MRI to confirm. Our visits have always been very positive.

Dr. Peterson saw me when Dr. Dunitz was not in town for consult for hip pain and osteoarthritis. He was personable, and interested in my problem. He explained that he uses a more traditional posterior approach to hip replacement, compared to Dr. Dunitz who uses anterior appoach. He answered all my questions and agreed to consult with Dr. Dunitz the following week. He did and my surgery was scheduled very quickly.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Peterson. I appreciated the fact that he took into consideration what I was expecting of the outcome of my care. He always listened to me and addressed my concerns and gave me multiple options for my care. I did have to wait one day for about 30 minutes, but even when I got back there, he didn't rush me and I still got ample time for my appointment.
