    Three months after Peterson and Andronaco performed spinal stenosis surgery on me, I was in the ER unable to walk. Peterson's attitude was that "nothing was wrong", although he ignored my requests to see the MRI. He said the fusion, obtained with an interspinal device using powdered bone, was good, but other orthopedic doctors I consulted were appalled by how skimpy it was. I now basically cannot walk; no palliative treatment was offered, and I was basically abandoned to paraplegism.

    He does not tell you the whole story when it comes to diagnosing. He failed miserably on my surgery and almost a year later I still cannot walk without excruciating pain. He also allowed another surgeon to perform work on me that I never met, never approved and would never have agreed to. Please go every other single route possible before letting this man ruin your life and hopes of ever living a pain reduced life . To make things worse te women working for him are cold, calloused and rude.

    Dr. Peterson is an excellent surgeon. I had my procedure in February, 2014 and have not had any issues with my back since. He is a very dedicated doctor and is thorough with his treatment and questions. He also has a great sense of humor and is very kind! I have recommended him to all my friends and associates who may need back surgery.
