He makes coming to see him so comfortable and easy. I am very pleased he is my doctor. would recommend him to friends and family.

I would say Dr. Peterson is a very good doctor and actually listens to what i have concerns about. He is very knowledgeable and seems to be in tune with the current medical information available.I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a doctor. In addition he is upbeat and has a great attitude when i visit him. Like everyone, he is probably underpaid, so try giving him a raise.

Dr. Peterson is an excellent Doctor. He takes time to talk with you and to make you feel comfortable during your appointment. I never feel rushed and always leave knowing he cares and truly knows his patients.

Dr Peterson is hands down the best pcp in erie. I not only trust him with mylife but I look to him for not just healthcare issues but about life. he's the only dr that not only pays attention to me and my needs but will always look for what's best for me. I couldn't say enough nice things about him. his a great doctor and all upmc pcp should provide care and compassion like he does. he's always so calm and confident. I've been with him for a while and any issue that has come up with me, he's always fixed it on the first try. he's a pcp that really understands the importants of "a patients plan of care". no matter where he needs to send me he always knows what the other doctor wants done and he always confirms that it approves. a lot of pcp will hand off care and never follow back up. but he never misses a beat. great job
