What People Say About Dr. Richard Peterson, MD
Reply
My first impression of Dr Peterson was that he truly cared about me as his patient. He was very diligent in his efforts to understand my unique medical issue. He ultimately would make exhaustive efforts to determine my condition and then eventually refer me to a very good surgeon. Dr Peterson represents his profession at a very high level. He is professional, skilled and very conscientious. I could not be more impressed with the eventual outcome of Dr Peterson's efforts and care.

Dr. Peterson is nice, very knowledgeable, thorough in his work, genuinely cares about his patients, and has a good sense of humor. He spends a lot of time with his patients and takes the time to answer any and all questions they may have. He also has a wonderful staff and works with great rehabilitation specialists. I am very glad that he will be in charge of my long term care.
