Dr. Peterson is an excellent listener and extremely knowledgeable. It is also obvious that he considers my health issues between visits...he is a great problem solver.

very good

July 13, 2017

this was a sinus/cold sick visit. I think the staff tries to address the issue at hand versus a well-check or problem visit where staff takes more time with patients to cover any on going problems, questions, concerns. So sometimes these questions are not worded fairly. The care we received was as expected for this type of visit.

Cary is a true physician as he teaches and explains in great detail any and all diagnoses as an educator/doctor.
