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. I couldn't be more thankful for the quality care my husband and I Receive at this office.

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

Only depending on their resident location. Time and travel distance they'd need to travel.

  Sep 8, 2022
Always reviews my chart, refers me to other provider if necessary, listens to my concerns, Doesn't look at the floor or his feet when I'm talking to him, he really listens and we make eye contact, unlike so many other doctors! He shows care and concern and never acts like he can't wait to get rid of me! He takes his job of caring for people seriously.

We had a slow start to the appointment (mild delay) due to a computer glitch. All went well but one medication was increased in dose but when I got it from the pharmacy it was at the old dosage and my provider had not written for the increased dose.

Dr. Peter is thorough and communicates well with what he is doing. He invites input and is respectful and is willing to refer care to other providers for conditions that he feels are beyond his training to perform quality care.
