Dr. Peterson is extremely knowledgeable in her field and made me feel at ease throughout the consultation. I have small veins and ran into IV/phlebotomy issues in the past, but she nailed it on the first try. I had a speedy recovery and have already recommended her to a friend. Thanks again, Dr....more
