  • I Will use Dr. Peterson everytime I have an issue. He wanted to try everything possible before surgery. Dr. Peterson could tell I was in pain and instead of making another appointment like most doctors do, he got me in and had me on the right path to pain free. Today is the next day and I feel so much better. After the shot, I had a couple questions, so I called and his assistant was right on it. I am very thankful for the customer service.

  • What a find! Dr. Petersen was everything I look for in a doctor. He saw my teenage son after a sports injury. He was able to see him the day after I called. He has a great personality. He was very thorough in gathering information and asking questions. He provided detailed explanations and advice for treatment. Nice office and very little wait time. Impressed with the ability to look at the muscle using ultrasound and the papers handed to me going out the door with suggested exercises for home therapy. We have found our new favorite sports medicine doctor.Margee Connolly
