Dr. Matthew R Peterson has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Do not recommend

This doctor has put my Mother through many nights of literal screaming and crying after her back surgery from ridiculous changes in medications. He was quite rude to her and generally seems like he doesn't care for his patients.. It's just a way to make a living for him. Because of him changing her medications so dramatically, she was in a lot of pain and had to call in a few times. At her next appointment the Dr. Peterson said that she was taking up a lot of time with their staff and that they should be charging her for it all and that he didn't even know if he wanted to be her doctor. Post Op he had my mom on doses that covered a fair amount of her pain, and then dropped it down to virtually nothing in comparison.. I did not sleep well for a few nights, while she did not at all. When she went in saying that she almost felt like she was going through withdrawls- he grinned and said " I bet you are." .. Bottom line- I would not recommend going to the doctor for chronic pain treatment.
