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.

V. Peterson MD is wonderful. if anyone I know needs a sleep specialist, I'll will certainly recommend her. Also I haven't seen anyone on my care team in 3 months so there's been no interaction with any of them re my one prescription drug I take everyday. I discussed this pharmacological agent with Dr Peterson, but she's not officially in my care team yet.
