At my initial visit and physical, Dr. Peters detected a heart murmur. She asked if I had been told by my previous PCP of the condition. I had not, in fact I had had a complete physical just 4 months prior and 3 annual ones also. She was very upset that the murmur had been missed and had a cardiologist exam set up soon after. Her expertise and acute hearing led to me having open heart surgery where my aorta valve that had been leaking was replaced. I feel that Dr. Peters in essence saved my life. I would recommend this doctor to anyone in need of a PCP who is a very qualified physician and a very compassionate human being who is truly interested in her patient's health & well being.

Dr. Peters accepted me as a patient about 2 years ago after my primary care physician of 20+ years discontinued her practice. Dr. Peters has stepped in and stepped up to become my new primary care physician, and a truly great one at that. She is compassionate, timely, knowledgeable and simply excellent by my standards. What could have well been a very difficult time for me has been far better than expected. Dr. Peters and her staff are highly recommended by me.
