Dr. Petersen gets very poor marks for care show details Dr. Petersen gets very poor marks for care
by Jeanine Dahlquist and Dolores Zierten on Feb 16th, 2015

My mother saw Dr. Petersen for Central Retinal Vein Occlusion and received injections of the drug Eylea. Dr Peterson did not wait for the eye to numb before he injected the medication on 4 different occasions over the last year (2014). It was an incredibly painful experience. It wasn't until her last two injections were done at her winter home in Florida that we found out that this could and should be a nearly painless experience just by waiting for the eye to numb. The new physician also rinsed the eye with saline afterward to remove the "grit" that had made her eye so sore for days afterward. She couldn't get over the difference. There really is no excuse for this and I want everyone to know that this physician should be avoided.
