    I asked Dr Peterson for a blood test given I have a history of heart issues in my family, and I like to discuss/monitor my cholesterol. Plus I mentioned to Dr Peterson that I have been feeling sluggish and lethargic for months and wonder if my testosterone/thyroid levels are dropping given my age. After taking my blood sample Dr Peterson said I would have a response within 24 hours and I would get a message since I was registered with myhealth. After a week of not hearing anything from Dr Peterson I called and left a message......it took 3 days for someone to get back with me. My wife happens to be a nurse so she reviewed my results and my cholesterol levels are high, testosterone and thyroid levels have been slowly declining. I reached out to Dr Peterson's office since my thyroid levels were on the low end of the spectrum if I could have a thyroid prescription (nature thyroid). He sent me a message by myhealth declining my request and asked if I wanted to go see a specialist. Anyway, never mentioned anything about my cholesterol levels being high or testosterone levels declining. Frankly, I didn't feel like he really cared about my current state and/or the results of my blood test.... I have no motivation and/or energy levels and something isn't right. Dr Peterson doesn't seem concerned with helping me improve my current state.....just a number and doesn't seem like he has a good grasp on treating his patients. Really disappointed with my outcome. Other than getting a reading on a number of items with my blood draw it was a waste of money and time. Won't be going back. I shouldn't have to continually call and leave messages in order to remind my Doctor to respond. Poor customer service and a crappy experience for me the paying customer.

    I feel like he wants me to do the diagnosis and then says he will refer me to Neurologist and doesn't. I feel like he doesn't know what he's talking about.

    I've known Dr Peterson for over 15 years. In my opinion, there isn't a more knowledgeable, down to earth, easy to understand and competent physician in the area. I'm glad I finally have an insurance program that allows me to see him in network.

    In the current "health care provider" climate, one would be hard pressed to find a better facility, staff, and overall experience. Great service!

    I already have recommended, my 18 year old daughter has seen Dr. Peterson as well.

    multiple times he asked me the same question, as if he wasn't paying attention the first few times. he didn't seem to care how many symptoms i was having and how i was feeling. mostly seemed he wanted to humor me and get me out of the office. i got no follow up phone call. i got an email later on saying my liver numbers were high but with no info on what to do next. i sent multiple emails and called multiple times with no phone call or email back. i will never come back to this office.

    Dr Peterson is the best there is

    I felt almost as if he was unsure about what health problem I was experiencing. I didn't quite feel like he told me what it was but just some things I could do with it to strengthen.

    Michael Peterson is professional, a good listener, and is interested in what I have to say. I like that he discusses things with me in a way that makes me feel like an equal partner in my healthcare. Always a positive interaction.
