Dr Peterson and his team are amazing! They always made me feel comfortable and like I was in good hands. They were all always very friendly and always welcomed my questions and concerns even weeks after my surgery. I am 3.5 weeks along in my healing and am very happy with my results so far. I would highly recommend Dr Peterson’s services!
My experience with Dr. Peterson and his team was exceptional. I was nervous for my procedure as I had never had a surgery before. But everything went just perfect and I am very, very happy with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Peterson to anyone looking for an improved appearance. He is a top notch surgeon and just the kindest man. He took the time to reassure me several times pre surgery because of my nervousness. If I do have anything else done in the future, I know now that I would not be at all nervous. The procedure, the anesthetist, and the after care were all fantastic. Thank you Dr. Peterson and your team.
