Dr Peterson has only been my pain management doctor for 3 months but he is one of the most caring doctors I have had. He listens, understands my problems and is currently working to solve my pain. He has a wonderful and compassionate personality and his patients are truly lucky to have him as their doctor.

You can't ask for a better Doctor than Dr. Peterson. He's such a decent, kind man and exhibits genuine concern for his patient. He treats me with respect, doesn't treat me like a 'junkie', an hysterical woman or a hypochondriac. He extends the benefit of the doubt and wants, truly wants to help. He does not withhold prescribing medication, hoping to cover his rear the way so many other PM docs do. I trust him implicitly. You're so lucky to get him, if you do.
