Dr. Peterson and his nurse Jen are fantastic! We have been coming to see Dr. Peterson for over 20 years and are extremely happy with his care. Unfortunately, the front desk employees are difficult to work with. They are not friendly and always seem put out by your requests (scheduling a same day appointment, requesting paperwork to be filled out by the doctor or even just checking in for your appointment). If you can handle the frustration of the front desk, I would highly recommend Dr. Peterson

I love Wasatch Medical Center!! The Staff and doctors are amazing. Dr. Peterson is an amazing doctor to both kids and adults. He always takes the time to answer any questions I have and never makes me feel like he's in a hurry to get me out of there. I would recommen him to anyone who is looking for a new doctor.

Will order a ton of testing and then not prescribe anything to help...even though I have been on my current meds for 10 years. Would not even see me when I asked specifically to talk to him. (Yes it was after hours and he did not have any patients.) Would not recommend at all...especially if you don't like to pay over $1000 in lab bills and office fees for absolutely nothing!
