Dr. Petersen is very genuine & modest. I think I trust him even more because he is so unpretentious. Personally, I believe he is the best, knowledgeable and caring dr I've ever met. He's an encyclopedia of medical knowledge that would be almost impossible to duplicate anywhere in the Vero Beach or surrounding areas. He's not over- impressed with himself as some drs seem. He's has a quick wit and delicate sense of humor considering the circumstances. He pobably has an IQ quotient of around 190. My husband is finished (for now) on his radiation treatments. But if it becomes necessary to have more help...this doctor will be the first doctor we see. He is very very intelligent, Thank you so much Dr. P if you ever read this. It's with a heartfelt thanks that I write this thanking you for my husband's better health. You are wonderful.
