already seeing strong results from her program for me. results speak for themselves.

dr Peterson is generally very helpful. it didn't appear that she was aware that if seen another dr in her absence the week previous regarding dizziness and shaking to evaluate if it was from tapering off my medicine. she thought we were going to discuss coming off the med. I was surprised that she didn't follow-up with the previous appointment and encouraged me to keep my session to 2 issues. I thought the severe migraine was part of tapering off the med. she said that it wasn't because it was out of my system. I thought that was the point of being seen? I left feeling confused.

New doctor to me and she was awesome!

I really liked Dr. Peterson. She was engaging, interactive and seemed genuinely interested in all aspects of my health. That was refreshing.

My first time with Dr. Peterson and I really liked her and felt she listened.

I really like Dr. Peterson. Great "bed side" manner and I feel we are communicating on the same level.

She is very caring and professional.

I can honestly say I don't see myself with any care provider! Hands down Peterson has established a high quality and a great attention to care and detail that I have not found anywhere else nor plan to look! Peterson makes my visit to the doctors truly a stress free one, and with each visit including this one it's a step closer to bettering my health overall and I love that I am so comfortable with a doctor to the point I don't shy away from any question or concern! Peterson has already been recommended to handful of friends and family which they have already switched over (Yay!) and she will continue to be recommended since I believe she is the best of the best,and that is very hard to find! I am already counting down the days she comes back from her leave ;)

Our family, me, my wife and my child goes to this doctor but got no good treatment, we are requesting Swedish Health Care to find us a better doctor or we will need to change our care plan
