I have been a patient of Dr. Peterson's for almost 9 years. Even though I moved out of Citrus County, I still make the trip to see him when I need medical care. I tried other doctors in my county (Hernando) but I just didn't feel comfortable with them as I do with Dr. Peterson. He'll make you feel like you are his only patient. That's how it should be.
