Very nice person. Seemed confident in diagnosis. Made diagnosis by various testing that was impressive to me. Referred me on to friend neurosurgeon in Houston...wish he was doing the surgery.

One Star

terrible bedside manner, wont talk to you. He will ask questions and when you answer all you get is stupid looks back. wont explain anything. I left his office still wondering what is wrong with me. He did back surgery on me and it was a flop. He acted like it hurt his feelings. and said he didn't know what was wrong with my back. dr peitersen is a looser.
