    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Best Cardiac Dr!

After a few missteps with other cardiologists, I was fortunate to find Dr. Peterson. My lucky day. Never feel rushed during appointments with her and always.. ALWAYS feel like she not only truly listens to my concerns but looks to whats needed, not just ordering a bunch of tests or throwing meds at me... and she's awesome in explaining options and respecting what works in regards to my life.. Sometimes you may have to wait a bit to see her but its because she actually spends time with her patients verses spending time meeting a schedulers timeline but as a patient- she's totally worth any wait.
