  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.

In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • Gastroenterology

Dr. Peters is a rare find in this new age of fast-pace medical care. He took such care and attention on my daughter's condition that I had no concerns over her procedures...and he's so kind -- you just can't help but feel that you're in good hands. I sure wish there were more like him!

A happy parent

Dr. Peters is simply AMAZING! We've gone through heck and back with our infant daughter and he has brought us encouragement, strength, kindness, and finally some answers! He is very therough and talks to you so you can understand everything. He is also very clear and patient. We come with a list of questions each visit and we never have to answer them because he is so good at his job he covers all of our questions before we need to answer them. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone that needs a Pediatric GI Dr!

Great dr but didn't get answers we needed

We were late for our appt due to traffic and dr peters saw us during his lunch break so we wouldn't have to drive the distance for another appt. he was very caring and good with our son. Everyone was so nice when our son had his procedure and really accomidated him considering he has autism. Overall very good experience. We didn't get the answers we were hoping for but our son is a hard case.
