No bad only good

Dr. Peter gave me a very thorough examination during this my very first visit to him. I was pleasantly surprised by this as was very different from my past experience with my previous Doctor. I was impressed with his detailed knowledge of arthritis, one of his specialties, and he took the time to explain my diagnosis using anatomical images.This being my first visit he also took the time to discuss in detail other numerous aspects of my medical history which gave me a much better understanding of my overall medical condition. He ordered a blood draw and a urine sample that were taken during my visit. He also recommended safe usage of over the counter pain medication for my hip discomfort. The entire visit was over 60 minutes. Overall I was very impressed this initial visit to my new primary care provider.

I understood that Medicare insurance plans are limiting what care I can receive (including an 'annual physical') but Dr. Peter is doing his best to cover all the bases during semi-annual checkups. I still am concerned that some important tests may not be done because insurance rules dictate they're not allowed.

Sometimes it's difficult to hear what receptionists are saying. There is office music playing and receptionists wear masks. I and other hearing impaired people sometimes find it difficult to hear them. They are also behind glass which I understand is needed but that also is a factor in clear comunication.

Dr. Peter is so careful to review my record. When I have concerns, he explains in a very clear way that I understand. If he thinks I need a referral, he is on it. Kerryann, Dr. Peter's medical assistant is also so conscientious, she is so good about going over doctor's notes to make sure I understand. As I have said before, they work like a fine machine.

  Nov 14, 2022
I love Dr. Peter and think he and his staff are amazing, however when I have had friends who wanted to see him, they have been told that he was not accepting new patients. The other doctors that they saw in the same office do not appear(from conversations I have had with friends) to be as kind or as helpful as Dr. Peter is. I wish we could clone him so my friends could feel as good about seeing their Dr., as I do about see Dr. Peter. As a result, I will not recommend to friends and family.

  Nov 14, 2022
