The office environment is very shabby and dirty and doesn't in any way reflect the excellent care provided by the caregivers in this office. They could at least clean the carpets to make it look a little healthier. All of the staff and medical personnel were efficient, caring, attentive and knowledgeable.

Dr Peterson is one of the best doctors I've ever encountered - she is warm, attentive and very knowledgeable. Sleeping with a CPAP made a huge Improvement in my life but it Isn't always easy. Dr Peterson is good at coming up with solutions to any problems I may be having.
