Excellent Doctor!

I've been going to Dr. Peterson for years now because she is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. She is very attentive- she LISTENS to me and really cares about her patients and is the nicest, most personable doctor I've ever known.

Dropped the ball

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.

Not Worth The Hassle-Find Someone Else

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..........
