Office is billing Medicare incorrectly and I need to pay $305.00. They are billing for Preventive Care Visit instead of Annual Visit. I see a GYN once a year and my Dr. retired so I went to Dr. Peterson for my Annual Visit. Medicare states they need to change the CPT Code and they will pay since they see my records and they always paid my yearly visit with my GYN doctor. Dr Petersons office refuse to change the coding. I will not be seeing him again.

It has been over 6 years since he butchered my hysterectomy ! I still carry the physical and mental scare that he has given me ! He has never apologized for what he has put me through ! Till this day a I regret the day I met him and wished I never used his office ! I don't wish on anyone what I went through ! I was a healthy woman going in and came out with several months of trying to get out of the nightmare with more surgeries from a urologist to fix what he had butchered! I have a huge scar that had to be opened up 2 more times by the urologist because of petersons mistake ! Now I'm left with a deformed body that is physically and visually humiliating! Thanks Peterson!
I have had one appointment with him. It was my first appointment and I can't say enough about him! He was very kind and very knowledgeable. He was not only concerned with my current issue but was concerned and discussed all my health needs. I have already referred him to several people. I even told one person who has had the same doctor for years to call and make an appointment. She is making her appointment now. He is just the BEST!
