I am sorry I'm going to have to leave this practice because of the problems between Highmark and UPMC. I don't think insurance companies should be dictating my medical care. I hope I can find a doctor as caring and compassionate as dr. Peterson

August 27, 2018

The entire office is very efficient. Dr. Peterson is kind , caring , very efficient in his medical care. He sincerely wants what is best for you. I get nervous going to the Foctir and he makes you calm from the moment he enters the room!

August 15, 2018

I like the fact that my doctor is very thorough when it comes to blood tests. He is always friendly and so is his staff.

Wouldn't go anywhere else. Dr. Peterson is definitely a doctor that's in it for the patients.

August 09, 2018

Dr. Petersen always takes the time to explain a condition, Rx, test results and any questions I may have.

August 07, 2018

After Dr May left this location, I decided to stay and switch to Dr. Peterson. I am 70 yrs old and have experienced a lot of doctors in my time but I must say Dr Peterson is the best physician I have ever had. He is detailed, caring, sincere with a sense of humor.

Dr. Cary Peterson is my physician and I agree with whatever he says
