My child has seen Dr. Peter and other doctors (so sorry I can't remember all of the names) for a few years. Dr. Peter is a wonderful doctor and he takes time to explain things clearly. My child loves him and Mrs. Peter. All doctors in the office are wonderful and thorough. Their staff is the best also...kind and courteous and knowledgeable. Thank you to everyone in the office.
He is an absolutely wonderful and knowledgeable doctor. His office staff is another story. I had went to him for 5.5 years and saw a dramatic decline in the past year and a half. The office staff have lied to me about policy, who would be seeing my children, and the amount my insurance would pay for a procedure.A wonderful doctor but the office staff made it impossible for me to keep using this doctor.
