Dr. Brett Petersen

Dr. Petersen is one of the best physicians I have ever come across. His person bedside manner is excellent. He is caring, compassionate and thorough in all of his explanations and ideas for care. He recently extended my husband's life with creatively doing some alternative procedures as part of his ERCP. He was a master in how he was able to install a third metal stent in his bile ducts and basically created a miracle for both of us. His explanations for what, how and why were very comprehensive and he was so very humble....he is the BEST! We are thrilled to have him treating my husband.
