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.

I am personally an anti-vaxxer due to my religious and political beliefs. Dr. Peter has a hard time understanding that which made me feel a bit uncomfortable. He believes strongly in the vaccine.

This doctor spends more time trying to figure out his computer screen and seems highly distracted. It's been this way with every visit I have had with him. Seriously thinking of switching doctors.

I arrived at 07:50; Dr. Peter did not arrive in the exam room until 08:28. I had an 08:00 appointment. That does not impress me.

I received an invitation to fill our a questionnaire before my office visit. THat questionnaire did NOT work correctly. It did NOT record my answers. I tried to fill it out THREE TIMES, and finally gave up since after the third time of "NO RESPONSE" being recorded when I had just filled out the questions, I was very frustrated.

So far I haven't really had a bad experience with Dr. Peter! He is a very efficient Dr! He spends at least 45 minute per office visit and actually listens and records his findings in my medical records! I was recently diagnosed with dementia and had to give up my drivers license, I didn't like that but after he explained my situation I am dealing with it! He is a very understanding Dr

Dr Peter is a wonderful Doctor, He is intelligent, patience, first thing he asks is how have I been. I believe that he cares about me as a person not just a patient. He never seems hurried, takes the time for me to answer any questions that he asks. Always has my best interest in hand or I feel he does, I feel glad that I have him as a Doctor.

Dr. Peter told me he had only time to deal with one of my medical issues and I needed to make another appointment. I had elevated blood pressure so naturally I knew he had to concentrate on that but the pain of my arthritis may have been influencing my pressure. So I think doctors should listen to patients.
