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.

The visits with Dr. Peter are always good, even if there are some concerning issues. I never feel that he is in a rush to finish the appointment. My questions are answered with his great medical acumen. Kerryann, his medical assistant, is a pleasure to interact with.

Dr Peter spent time to help me understand what was going on with my recent AFIB. Really appreciated the time he spent. He has always been an excellent doctor especially as I age. He was familiar with the treatment of the cardiologist. I credit Dr. Peter for my health and his good care and encouragement.

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

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.

Dr Peter explains things thoroughly. Which I appreciate. He also endorses the same view I do in taking care of oneself without overdoing . I have a problem with doing more physical activity at a time than wise. For instance.

After arriving home and reading the after visit summary, it said we discussed "panic disorder". I do not have a panic disorder and we did not discuss that topic at all. Also the after visit summary indicated that the Doctor wanted my optimal blood pressure to be 130/80 and showing the Doctor my list of recent blood pressure readings that were all above that reading, he indicated that he was happy with these higher readings and to stay on the blood pressure medication as prescribed. All my other medical issues he really did not want to discuss and he wanted me to continue to see specialists and come back in 4 months.
