- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Peters was my internist for a number of years. I liked his decisiveness and enjoyed his sense of humor. I am currently 57 years old. A couple of years ago, I began steadily losing weight (40 pounds), losing energy, suffering from nausea with a distinct change in my skin tone. I spent months being subject to a battery of tests and office visits, none of which led Dr. Peters to a diagnosis. I checked my symptoms through the online symptoms checkers at the Mayo Clinic and several other sources, and all of my research suggested I had a certain uncommon incurable disease of the endocrine system. When I told Dr. Peters that I thought I had this particular disease, he seemed skeptical, but agreed to refer me to an endocrinologist. The endocrinologist confirmed that I had the disease that I suspected I had. The endocrinologist said to me: âI knew you had it the minute I saw you.â After confirmation of the diagnosis with the endocrinologist I had to decide whether or not to stay with Dr. Peters. I couldnât. How could I, a non-doctor, more successfully diagnose my condition using simple Internet based tools than an actual doctor? Ironically, Craig Peters never phoned me to check on me to see how I was doing. That alone confirmed that this was not the kind of doctor I wanted to deal with.
This MD is interesting. He's smart. But perhaps too smart. He's missed a few things for me that other MD's didn't miss. He doesn't like to talk about insurance...it makes him cringe...well, you know what Doc, bad insurance is everyone's future so it would be nice if you could help us figure it out so we can know what procedures we can afford. Don't go to him for sinus problems. He's good for simple stuff like vitamens, vacines, trouble sleeping, etc. Seems rushed to get on to the next appointment.
I was one of the first patients Dr. Peters had. To say I am still with him says it all!! He is an excellent doctor..its no wonder he was at the top of his class! Not a doubt in my mind that he knows his stuff...and to be such a nice man, you couldn't ask for a better Doctor. I would never, ever consider changing Doctors. When you have the best, you don't change! You will never be sorry if you have him for your primary care doctor.
My husband and I have been going to Dr. Peters for several years now and we travel a long way just to see him. He is an excellent physician with a great personality/bedside manner. He listens to his patients and is very attentive to their needs. He has a wonderful staff who fully support him and they are always good at getting back to you promptly. I cannot praise him high enough. He is very smart and I trust his judgment completely. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Peters as our PCP.
