We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Dr. Peterson is one of the best Dr's that I have ever seen. She takes all the time that you need for questions and does not cut your visit short. I actually feel like I'm with a friend. In this day and age this does not happen often but she actually called me to see how I was doing-she is great!!!

Best doctor I've ever had! She takes all the time needed with you, answers questions thoroughly, and gives you tons of information about your CPAP machine, shows you charts, adjusts the machine according to your needs and desires, etc. She does a routine blood pressure/heart monitor test for each visit. On one visit she discovered a very low heartbeat and immediately gave me an EKG, then scheduled me with a cardiologist. All this from a sleep doctor!
