I called to get results of a stress test, 5 days after stress test, he said it was pretty normal. I also had my pacemaker checked, even with my pace maker I had afib., that the upper part was going too fast, but the lower was going slower. My doctor did not tell me if I needed to have anything done to change that, as my understanding it could cause blood clots. So I guess I need to call and ask,; maybe it straightened out when the pacemaker tech. adjusted my pacemaker. Not sure though.

I only saw Dr. Peterson once on the initial referral from my PCP, and then for less than a minute right before a recent diagnostic procedure. He seems very competent and his credentials are above reproach, but I have deal primarily with his staff--all of whom are incredible!

I was very impressed with Dr. Peterson's staff. A woman returned my phone call re blood test and was very helpful. Other staff are friendly and efficient. I researched cardiologists before selecting Dr. Peterson and I am very pleased with his personality, knowledge and interest in my future health care. I have every confidence in Dr. Peterson after only one appointment.

The provider in this situation was very rushed and over booked. The administration needs to reevaluate the appointment process for this provider. He is overloaded with work and therefore does not have the quality time to spend with individual patients. This was my first visit and was able to see the provider for all of about 7 minutes. Cardiology should not be treated the same as getting a flu shot!!! It should be noted that the providers' expertise is of the highest caliber however he is not able to execute that expertise in a 5 minute visit.

Dr. Peterson was exceptional and a marked difference from the previous PA that I visited. I almost changed to a different physicians group because of that PA. Now I will remain with Providence. From now on I only want to see Dr. Peterson
