      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Peterson's Care Philosophy

      I strongly believe in communicating the nature of my patients condition with respect to their diagnosis and the alternatives of treatment. While surgery may be required to correct a foot condition, conservative options are generally always available & are discussed so that a full dis- closure of a patient's options are available so that you as the patient can make informed decision on your own healthcare. While technology adavances, I employ new techiques & equipment only after they have been proven to be effective, safe & beneficial to insuring a better outcome for my patients. Experimenting with new texhniques & technologu should be left to the reserch facilities & test studies rather than a private practice. I treat my patients like I would treat my own family & friends with the same courtesy, respect & provision of information that one should expect when making healthcare decisions.
