This was my second visit with Dr. Petersen. She's friendly, helpful, and professional. She gave detailed information about my treatment and was able to answer my long and extensive list of follow-up questions. She referenced several thingswe discussed in my last visit, which I appreciate because it shows that she properly looked over our previous session's notes before today's appointment. Wait time was fairly typical, in my experience.

Very personable, spent plenty of time with me, explained everything in terms I could understand, presented me with treatment options instead of just telling me what to do. Sent me home with tons of product samples to try for my skin, in addition to my prescription. Highly highly recommend

After 60 minute wait with no sign of seeing the Dr anytime soon,I choose to leave.Staff is pleasant but non communicative.. I am sure there was a good reason for the delay but since this was my first visit I thoughtit better to move on than get involved with a poorly run practice.

Dr. Burns was extremely personable and knowledgable, and answered all my questions. I particularly appreciated that she was not an alarmist--she was certainly cautious and watchful, but did not recommend any radical surgery. She did a thoroughexamination and explained everything she was doing, even showing me a couple of close-up photos she took of my moles. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Burns to anyone!
