Very friendly,sensitive people. Much appreciated.

  Mar 5, 2024
I have never been treated so poorly. I was told by the physician that there were too many red flags and we were not a good fit. Upon leaving I went to my insurance lady and changed back to providence so I could stay with my old provider of 15 years. He told me he would not refill my medications and they would have to be filled by other professionals

  Mar 4, 2024

We respect Dr Peter and his team enough to have recommended him to a number of people who needed a change in doctors. He keeps up on all new medical information and is eager to share it with you. He takes all the time you need to answer questions and offer advice.

  Dec 5, 2023
First time at legacy. Took 3 months to get to see a doctor. But glad I got in. Very professional group, glad to have their support!

  Nov 28, 2023
Usually things go very smoothly. This time there were huge waiting times. I got the impression (from what I heard) that some Christmas selling was going on with the staff ... While I waited ...

  Nov 21, 2023
Because the results and recommendations of my blood test directly affected my knee surgery scheduling, I was very anxious to move forward and adjust my supplements to correct low iron and B12. I have been on a shuffling schedule situation beetween doctors since my first symptoms many months ago so needless to say I have been frustrated......all the while getting weaker and worse. I am not sure it is anybody's fault but the process is definitely frustrating.

  Nov 20, 2023
Very satisfied

  Nov 17, 2023
Dr. Peter is a consummate professional. He's very personable, easy to talk with, listens attentively and always answers questions thoughtfully and respectfully.

  Nov 16, 2023
The blood test results are not ready yet. I expect they will show up on the website soon

  Nov 13, 2023
Although I would love to recommend Dr Peter, I know he is not accepting new patients, so I don't actually recommend him as this just causes issues. I have had a friend try and get in with Dr Peter and he wasn't accepting new patients so she went to another dr in the office and she has not been very satisfied with her relationship with the other dr, she keeps hoping Dr. Peter will have an opening.

  Nov 13, 2023
Always an exellent experience

Experiences good

I have already recommended this provider to my husband and my best friend. I have been in healthcare for 49 years. I know great when I see it. This is the best "new pt" visit I have ever had. Not only did he help me to manage my problem he helped to put me on a path to actually fixing the problem.

  Oct 19, 2023
Dr. Peter understands me .. My issues, my concerns .. I appreciate that about him and his medical assistant, KerryAnn. They take good care of me.

  Sep 29, 2023
Dr. Peter made me feel like I was his only patient that afternoon. As a brand new patient that was very important to me. He went through all my records and all prescriptions. He deleted a few and added something different. What I liked most was that he explained why he was doing it. Happy to find him!

  Sep 26, 2023
Always a friendly greeting by staff, nurse and doctor. Even when the visit is over.

  Sep 15, 2023
Dr. Peter seems very knowledgeable and thought with his exams

  Sep 15, 2023
I have never had health issues and remedies and reasons explained to me so clearly before I came to Doctor Peter. He is thorough and clear with explanations of what is happening in the body and how to deal with issues. He explains why some meds are preferable over others as well.

No bad only good

  Aug 10, 2023
Dr. Peter gave me a very thorough examination during this my very first visit to him. I was pleasantly surprised by this as was very different from my past experience with my previous Doctor. I was impressed with his detailed knowledge of arthritis, one of his specialties, and he took the time to explain my diagnosis using anatomical images.This being my first visit he also took the time to discuss in detail other numerous aspects of my medical history which gave me a much better understanding of my overall medical condition. He ordered a blood draw and a urine sample that were taken during my visit. He also recommended safe usage of over the counter pain medication for my hip discomfort. The entire visit was over 60 minutes. Overall I was very impressed this initial visit to my new primary care provider.

All was nice

I understood that Medicare insurance plans are limiting what care I can receive (including an 'annual physical') but Dr. Peter is doing his best to cover all the bases during semi-annual checkups. I still am concerned that some important tests may not be done because insurance rules dictate they're not allowed.

  Jul 17, 2023
Dr. Peter is excellent and thorough.

  Jul 13, 2023
My previous provider retired and it took a very long time to get a replacement but Dr. Peter spent more time and reviewed my medical history beter than I had ever experienced in the past.

  Jul 10, 2023
Excellent doctor understood my needs, listened to my needs and provided me with to improve my life. I highly recommend hem.

  Jul 10, 2023
Excellent doctor
