Dr. Peterson is the best physician I have ever met. He has true concern for the physical and emotional well being of his patients. It's absolutely welcome, impressive and refreshing. It's just who he is.

I have been going to Dr. Peterson for around 8-10 years now , and I have always had the best experience. I especially appreciated that as a patient I am given options, that all of my questions are being addressed, and that I am a part of the decision making process of my own care. I can only give the highest complements to Dr. Peterson and his staff...And regarding the end result? Well, he kept me racing bicycles through out the years, and now (that I am no longer racing) enjoying an active lifestyle. :)
