Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Peters "I am a Patient advocate for 34 years. I care about my patients. A usual visit can last between 1-3 hours. I will not divorce the foot and ankle from the rest of the body. I look at my patients, globally. If I discover something. outside my scope of practice, I will advise my patients, and see if they wish to bring in a different specialist, etc. It is all about team work, in making you healthy. You are part of the team. You could be proactive with the team in your decisions. You are special, and deserved to be listened to. You have a right to understand what is your health problem. You have patient rights. You are not a number, in my office. My passion for medicine, and helping patients, has encompassed 34 years....................... Please come and see me if you have any foot and ankle problems.847 579-0445"
