Did not believe that I had any problems before she saw me for the first time . Did not listen to me on my pain . Argued with me on when x-rays were taken . Did not help at all !!! All she did was tell me I was fine when I'm clearly not . Made appointments just to tell me to see another Dr or to hand 2 pieces of paper . She could of done that over the phone on both appointments . Not a good Dr if you ask me!!!
Doctor Peterson has never hurried me through an appointment Doctor Peterson has been so patent and kind with me explaining in detail my condition. She has listened to my concerns and has reassured me when I was feeling frustrated. I never question why we did what we did when I leave her office. When my husband decided he wanted to meet my doctor and hear what she had to say, she explained EVERYTHING to him. I am so impressed by this woman.
