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 and half behind. Rescheduled for the morning. Office failed to contact me again to tell me he was going to be two hours late. Does not take calls for emergencys. Worst wxperience ever...
