Patient Reviews (1)
in Davenport, IA |
We moved from DSM a few years ago, and we were very sorry that Dr. Pete couldn't move with us. He was a fantastic doctor for our three children, including our child with significant special needs, for 10 years. His course of treatment was always spot-on, and he didn't hesitate to refer for more specialized care if warranted. Our kids felt that Dr. Pete was very approachable. We love Dr. Pete!
