I had a horrible experience. I would NEVER recommend Dr. Peterson to anyone. would not take my call on a Friday. I went to the ER on Saturday because of severe bleeding. He doesn't take calls on the weekend. Post op appointment was a joke. His office didn't contact me to tell he was running an hour...more
