We have found Dr Peterson to be very knowledgeable and very compassionate. He is the only Dr we've ever seen that will sit with you and explain your options on care (including medications) and review the side effects and risks so that you can make the best choice. We wish we could clone him, as we wish all Drs were as excellent!!

Dr Peterson's bedside manor is very lacking, for a person who is to be more concerned with the kidneys all he could care about was my husbands liver and doing that biopsy and not working on getting a kidney biopsy and doing better treatment, I would never recommend this man to anyone he is rude to the family and he doesn't care about anything except his money
