What People Say About Dr. Stig Peitersen, MD
Reply
The first visit was ok, He was informative and professional. However, the second was not. His demeanor was dismissive and guarded. In my opinion, this was because on my second visit he had reviewed my insurance information. Long story short, if you have great insurance, he will treat you great.
