Great doctor. No wait, really took his time, was a very comprehensive visit. You can't argue with 38 years of experience!
For a hearing test, he whispered to the right and left side of my head asking if I could hear what he was saying...
Overall a good doctor, he seems to care about what you have to say and will actually listen to your issues.
Dr. Peters is very caring doctor. He was patient with me and attentive to everything what I was concerned about. He had very informative answers to all questions. The office is welcoming and friendly. Very happy that I'm finally found a right doctor for myself.:)
Very trans friendly doctor and can help you find transfriendly doctors for other specialties. very nice

Dr. Peters and Elizabeth have a very cozy, welcoming, and efficient office. I found both of them to be friendly and professional, and I look forward to managing my health with their office.
First appointment went very well. Great bedside manner and pleasant to deal with.
Small office, but both staff and Dr. Peters are very friendly! No wait at all, and got in-and-out quickly.
Doctor was unorganised and managed patient records with paper records. Came in for a simple repeat prescription and he tried to refer me to 3 different specialists. Clearly a scratch my/your back system going on there. The repeat prescription needed a blood test for which he checked the boxes for everything except the one thing I needed testing. Useless.
Great doctor with good intuition / knowledge.
Dr Peters is a highly skilled professional. You won't find a better physician.

Very kind and experienced doctor....Reminded me of my grandpa :) Will patiently listen to you and will suggest the right approach....I wish other Doctors were more personable like Dr. Kenneth, which is becoming increasingly rare nowadays....Doesn't take much to smile while doing what you are good at right ? :)
Sincerely appreciated Dr. Peters taking my appointment on short notice via ZocDocs. Dr. Peters was friendly, professional, and responsive - thank you!
Was very happy with my visit to Dr. Peter's office for a long overdue annual physical. The facilities are a bit outdated, but Dr. Peters more than makes up for this with his friendly demeanor.
I think Dr. Kenneth is a great doctor. I liked everything about him. I went for annual checkup and had some general question concerning my health to ask him. This was the first time I visited this doctor and I'll be going to him rest my life. Erica his nurse, is also wonderful. Dr. Kenneth also does follow up which is ex termly important. He took his time and explained every question that I had, to my satisfactory. I could really tell that he cares a lot about his patients. He has lots of experience and knowledge. He is someone that you can trust %100. I saw few patient leaving his office with a big smile. He makes you feel very welcome like someone who has known you for a long time.
DR peters is very knowledgeable and helpfull
Doctor Peters is a nice and warm gentleman, he seems very experienced and knowledgeable. I didn't have to wait at all and everything was quick. However, his office is pretty dated and it felt dark and a bit dirty. Overall very good experience!
Dr. Peters combines professional skills with the care for patient's concerns and well being and communicated with the patient about the path forward.
Dr. Peters was very professional and knowledgeable about my situation. I felt immediately at ease when talking with him. His staff was also efficient and courteous. My first visit with Dr. Peters was an excellent experience.
Dr. Peters was very friendly and professional. He didn't make me wait around like many doctors have in the past and overall gave me a very positive experience.
Great doctor. Really personable and cares about his patients. Highly recommend him!
He is a very experienced and knowledgeable doctor. One issue is that they are NOT integrated well with Zocdoc - so I had to do the paperwork again. And also they don't take the Insurance Card through mobile app - they wanted a physical hardcopy! I had to find a print out location nearby And they don't have a computer in the office! Again - The doctor is very experienced - particularly for headaches
Dr Peters was nice and thorough, staff was friendly. Recommend.
Polite, professional, thorough. I moved out here a year ago and needed an annual physical.
That he is a good doctor.
This was my first visit to a Doctor since I moved to US 8 months ago, and I can't be more happy with Dr Peters care. He answers every doubt and question and staff was kind and helpful.
Dr. Peters is very friendly and thorough with his care. He is incredibly knowledgeable and easy to talk with, and I look forward to visiting his office. He is especially great to discuss strategies that address problems and concerns I have with my health.
Great doctor. He has pretty good knowledge about things!
Doctor was available the next day.Very thorough and comprehensive look into my history. Asked questions and listened to me well. Would recommend!
Dr. Peters clearly has a lot of experience with patients. He is also highly patient and considerate for me as a patient.
Came for referrals, physical/bloodwork, and advice on a few concerns. Left with all that and some immunizations I'd been meaning to get.
Dr Peter is very patient and informative.
Very kind and friendly. He clearly cares about me and my health.
Good visit. Friendly staff. I will return
Really very helpful and nice Doctor.
Best bedside manner ever
Peters is a warm and professional doctor. I like being served there.
Kenneth and his staff were amazing. I look forward to my follow up appointment.
It was great. I'm new to silicon valley, and i was looking for a new primary care doctor. I'm glad I found the right guy.
Dr. Ken is super nice and experienced! Went there for annual physical exam, and he knows exactly what the problem is after I described the symptoms, he also gave me a lot useful suggestions which is really appreciated. Would definitely recommend Dr. Ken to my friends :)
There is a reason Dr. Peters has five stars. He is fantastic. My husband and I recently moved to the area, and I was dreading finding a new doctor. We have a pretty comprehensive list of health issues, and it's pretty hard to find a medical professional who will take the time to listen and help you navigate gauntlets of specialists. Dr. Peters does these things and has a great sense of humor to boot. I have visited the office twice and was present for my husband's appointment, and there was never a wait to be seen. His medical assistant, Erica, is amazing, especially considering that the office doesn't have a computer. I would echo the sentiment of other reviewers that there is a ton of paper in this office, but I don't think this hinders Dr. Peters or his staff from providing excellent care to a substantial volume of patients.
Dr. Peters is a fine primary care physician. I would recommend him to anyone.
He is a very nice and welcoming physician. Knowledgable of my condition.
Excellent bedside manner. Very polite, courteous and willing to listen. Highly recommended.
This was my first visit to Dr. Peters and was for my annual physical. He was very efficient, informative and pleasant. I'm glad that he was recommended to me!
Very old office, staff seemed annoyed and not liking their job Doc was old school not in a good way
Dr. Peters is a great guy and answers any questions I may have. Highly reccomended!
Dr. Peters was great and really cares about your well being. Very resourceful. Thank you.
He was a super nice and friendly doctor. I would strongly recommend him to anyone!
Great guy, really personable. Wants to be your doctor. Felt like he cared about me.
I'm so grateful to have found Dr. Peters. He was pleasant, professional, and took the time to listen. I would highly recommend Dr. Peters! His staff was very pleasant as well.
Very competent. It would be great though if their office adopted electronic records.
Since this was my first time visiting the doctor, I arrived 20 minutes ahead of my appointment to complete the needed paperwork. Even so, the doctor was able to see me shortly after I arrived. Dr. Peters was very patient, and went through my medical history with me. His staff was friendly and gave me head-up on the procedures (be it checking my blood pressure check or EKG) they were going to conduct. The overall environment and atmosphere was relaxed enough that I wasn't afraid to ask any follow up questions.
Excellent physician, listens well, explains clearly. A great experience and a great relief after seeing other physicians who are supposedly headache specialists, but who don't have the knowledge, insight and experience of Dr. Peters.
Lots of paper in the office. Feels like being in 1996. Dire need for electronic health records.
Doctor Peters was very professional and thorough, not to mention a gem of a man who is a pleasure to talk to. I would highly recommend him to others.
Cordial and well spirited
Friendly and helpful. Listened to my concerns. I wish everything in the office wasn't paper based, though!!
Dr.Peters is an excellent doctor! He was very patient in listening and researching on my symptoms. Was very thorough in his diagnosis and advised the treatment plan. I am very pleased to recommend Dr.Peters highly.
Dr. Peters was extremely attentive and took the time to listen and asses everything I had to tell him. I'm hopeful he'll be able to find a solution to my persistent headaches.
friendly and inviting.
