Ratings for Dr. Keri L. Peterson
Dr. Peterson is both highly professional as well as very knowledgeable in terms of her understanding of medical issues. I always feel comfortable entrusting my care to her and in reaching out to her when I need a question answered and/or a referral made to a specialist she is always responsive and happy to help. I continue to recommend Dr. P to friends and they are pleased so far with her work.
I'm not usually moved to post ratings on sites like this, but I was so impressed with Dr. Peterson that I felt I had to. Her warm bedside manner had me feeling comfortable from the start, and she took the time to listen to and answer all of my questions and concerns. I'd been suffering for years with a chronic sinus condition), and she was the first doctor that didn't write me a knee-jerk prescription for antibiotics (which I'd rather not take). The regimen she put me on has helped me breathe better than I have in years, plus I find that I'm no longer getting as many head colds! Definitely recommend!
I LOVE Dr. Peterson!!! I came in to her office quite anxious about my health issues and not knowing what to expect. Immediately I felt better; her staff was friendly and she saw me right on time. I recently found out that I may have an inherited disease, and Dr. Peterson took the time to explain it all to me, and reassure me... I really needed that. She seemed incredibly knowledgeable, and very compassionate. I'm very grateful that she is now my doc. I wish there were more docs like her.
I went to Dr. Peterson for a few years and was never fully happy with her. The final straw was me telling her about how bad my sinuses were and how it was almost impossible to breathe through my nose. She told me to SNIFF SALT WATER. I took it upon myself to go see a specialist who sent me for an MRI of my sinuses and immediately realized I needed surgery on them! I'm 100% better now. Even in the following weeks at a dental visit the dentist commented on how much better my sinuses were and confirmed that the specialist made an excellent choice. She's very dismissive and not very thorough at all.
I'm so surprised by these comments. I've been a patient of Dr. Peterson for years now and she has always been a pleasure. Her staff isnt the greatest but that doesnt take away of who she is or her knowledge. I have recommended several of my friends/family to her and they have never had a complaint.
she is quick and tends to only focus on one issue per appointment. But she is very knowledgeable, runs a very good office and i felt confident in her managing my care. I went in "not feeling well" and thinking I needed sleeping medicine. she suggested I was anemic, and the blood work confirmed this. After treatment for this, I felt much better. Most docs would have just written a script for meds and sent me on my way.
I am a longtime patient and have always found her to be caring and generous with her time. She did have staff problems but this issue seems to have been resolved. She always calls personally with lab results. As far as the Botox and Restalin issues, most people don't realize how little is paid to doctors by insurance companies. If these cash treatments help to subsidize a doctor's practice, good for them. Taking the Hippocratic Oath was not an oath of povery.
My hubby and I went to her after changing Ins. With me she was robotic and answered every specific question I had like she was being deposed. Offered me zero info or advice. Like me, she's attractive, smart and professional. I told for reasons not known I'm gaining wt. She asked me if I exercise. I do. And no more was addressed. She examined my hubby and was quite the chatterbug, until she realized he was my husband. Reckoned she had a relationship issue at the time. Then she scattered off. Follow up was no better, my labs were perfect. Hubby was diagnosed with Insulin resistance, which she announced to him like she was putting trash out. No advice or further info for him. Have seen her on CNN a few times, not impressed by her sophomoric answers and funky hair/makeup. At the time her receptionist was not doing her job and Dr P wasn't getting msgs to call pts. So she claimed. Won't return. Dr/Patient demeanor inadequate and lacking on all levels. Useless in a crisis.
While I was waiting to see Dr. Peterson, another patient of hers was crying over some medical condition and Dr. Peterson refused to see her. She seems great for the first appointment, but good luck even getting her on the phone unless a co-pay is provided. Her medical knowledge is high, but it might be worth changing physicians to one that knows how to speak to another human being.
I rated poor because majority of the posts are correct and it seems it is hit or miss with this Dr. She is all the about the money, the botox and her attitude depends on her personal life. In my opinion that is unprofessional and the quality of service was not acceptable. No plans to return.
