Dr.Talked me very nicely . Lots of confusion ordering medicine and so many mistakes. It took me lots of phone call to pharmacy and to her office.13 days to get my medicine and sleepless night thinking what is wrong. Later i came to know she just works 2 days a week.
I had to bug the office and basically tell them they were not following up in order to get any action...not a total waste of time but pretty close. When I called to ask if Dr. Peterson had reviewed my lab results I was told they were uploaded to my patient portal for review... So I was expected to self diagnose and carry on with no input from a medically trained professional.
If you would like to wait on hold 20 mins to schedule an appt, which is three weeks out, then Dr. Peterson is right for you. It's insanely awful trying to reach anyone other than an operator or VM. Plus, Dr. Peterson dropped the ball on scheduling additional exams, such as a mammogram, which is why I specifically went to her. And then, I can't reach her to schedule one, as I play phone tag at her office. If you miss their call (Hi, I'm returning your call, please call us at XXXX) because you're at work, you have to wait 24 hours before another call back. It should NOT be this hard..........
