In 1999, I came into Dr. Peters office to be treated for Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Dr. Peters' friendly and down-to-earth manner immediately put me at ease. He discussed his findings, outlined my options, patiently answered my questions, and gave me his recommendations, making it possible for me to make an informed decision. He conferred with other experts in his field and devised a personalized treatment plan that was spot on! 18 years later I'm still cancer free, thanks to Dr. Peters.

I would not recommend Dr. Peters. My sister was gravely ill with stage 4 cancer, I flew out to see her and went to a Dr appointment with her. We waited too long for my sister to be called into the waiting room. Then when Dr peters walked in he was more interested in small talk with me then how my sister was doing and about 5-10 mins in; he said "so how's she doing?" I also felt he wasn't listening to what she/we wanted. He was trying to push his own agenda. His bedside manner was truly awful!
