In General the Legacy System and all the doctors have been VERY Good, and I always get the help I need. This was a First Visit to "This provider" and she did very well.

Dr. Peterson was incredibly patient and focused on my concerns, took the time to completely answer and explain everything, I felt she truly cared about the issues I am having with sleep problems, and is 100% behind wanting to find an answer for me. She is one of the best providers I have ever seen. I know her schedule is packed because it took three months to get an appointment, yet at no time did I ever feel rushed or that Dr. Peterson had to take another patient. She really spent time with me asking questions and digging deeper into medical history and my Covid long haul issues to try to get me some answers. She has referred me to an overnight sleep study. I can't say enough great things about her, she is a great asset for Legacy.

I had a very positive experience with the doctor. She has excellent communication skills, speaks efficiently but thoroughly about various medical topics we covered. She was also a great listener and was able to refer back to things we discussed with a good understanding. She was able to put me at ease as we discussed my treatment options. Would highly recommend her!

Dr. Peterson showed a lot of compassion and was very understanding and ever walked me to make a follow-up appointment w/my primary care provider. This was a pleasant surprise as I've received HORRIBLE care from recent legacy providers and their assistants.

Knowledgable & personable provider. It would be helpful at times if she would provide documentation or sources for research on conditions or therapy discussed.
