Dr. Peterson has been helping me since 2016. Very friendly, understanding, and easy to talk to. He has helped me with multiple conditions as I've adjusted to college at William and Mary. No complaints.

Dr. Peterson is wonderful. He makes me feel at ease and I can tell he genuinely cares about helping me get better. He is easy to talk to and I never feel at all judged. He also has a silly sense of humor and it makes him that much more wonderful. He is very professional and I never feel rushed when I'm talking. I highly recommend him.

I would, without any reservations, recommend Dr. Peterson. Not only is he a down to earth person but cares very deeply for his patients and their well being by going above and beyond what I have experienced under care of others. I've only seen him 3-4 times and he is amazing. I am sadly leaving his care due to unfortunate circumstances that require me to leave the area. But when I informed him he was extremely understanding and is currently still at this moment working on helping me help further

Dr. Peterson is very professional, but also knows how to put a person at ease. He can relate to many people without making anyone feel bad for who they are. Dr. Peterson has his own style, but it works with my children. He is a person who one can open up to and know he is listening and caring about your wellbeing.

As a mother of a child with Autism it can be very challenging to find a doctor who is able to counsel a children on the spectrum. It takes a delicate balance of patience, creativity, and a sense of humor. Dr.Peterson has not only helped my sons quality of life but he has been the conscience he never have before. As long as you do your part, he will do his.
