Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Peterson "I believe in keeping the "Family" in family practice. To me that means, treating patients with evidence-based medicine with a personal, caring approach. Our patients become part of our family and I love getting to be part of their lives. 

I also think that going to the doctor shouldn't be stressful, so we try to create a warm and friendly environment for patients and staff alike."
