Great doctor and great practice! Everyone was friendly and things went smoothly once they started! The only issue was a long wait time - I was called in about 45 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. Also, I filled out allmy information on Zocdoc, but the office did not seem to have any of it. I still filled out paperwork, so I'm glad I showed up 30 minutes early just in case.

Dr. Peterson was kind and took time to really review my history and concerns. It was easy to get a same day appointment on this site. The office seems unorganized and the nurse forgot I was waiting in the exam roomto be taken to labs after seeing the Doctor.

My appointment with Dr. Petersen was great. Wait time was longer than anticipated, but doable. Only thing they could work on in this office is having friendlier Ultra Sound technician.

I was late, and really needed to see the doctor because I hadn't seen a gyno in over a year after moving from the east coast. They still saw me, and were so nice about squeezing me in too. Dr. Petersonwas really down to earth and made me feel so comfortable, and I was so happy that I just so happened to randomly pick this office off ZocDoc for my appointment. He answered any questions I had and made me feel so much more relieved about my issue I had going on. The front desk lady who dealt with me was also very accommodating and understanding.

Having not seen a gynecologist in more than 10+years and not normally seeing a male gynecologist I was VERY impressed. Dr. Petersen is kind, warm, friendly and LISTENS - something I don't find in doctors anymore. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr.Petersen. The staff is also very kind and friendly. Clean office.

Ive been coming to the Arrowhead Womens Center for the past 2 years and I have been seen by all the doctors at this office but Dr.Petersen is my favorite by far! He is extremely professional and courteous. I feel hegenuinely cares about my medical concerns and doesnt make me feel judged by anything i have going on. I highly recommend him especially to young women who have never had a papsmear or been to an OBGYN, he will honest make the experience as easy and comfortable as possible!

Dr. Peterson has been one of the best doctors I've ever had. I was afraid to see another OB/GYN due to an unpleasant experience elsewhere, but Dr. Peterson and his nurse made me feel at ease.

Fantastic! I'd previously left the practice due to feeling unheard and dismissed by another Dr. in the office but decided to give them another chance when they had a last minute appointment available and because they are in my tiny newnetwork. Initially, I had to redo the paperwork I'd completed online, was asked for a copay and my wait exceeded an hour. Still, it was well worth it. He spent a great deal of time addressing all of my concerns and his bedside manner is refreshing. Highly Recommend!

Very professional and polite doctor who did set a plan with me regarding having our next baby. He recommended ovulation tests and timing; which we had started already to the best of our ability. He also gave us references to clinicsthat could exam my husband. Unfortunately he did not recommend a pap smear, even though I haven't had one since 2014. He also did not do any testing or check my fertility because I am young and have only been trying for six months.

I miscarried about 4 weeks into my pregnancy and came here for my follow up. My experience with the other professionals before coming here was less than satisfactory. However, as soon as I came here I was so impressed with howwell I was treated! I received answers right away, everyone I interacted with was incredibly sweet and understanding, and they made sure all of my needs were met and questions were answered. The doctor I saw, Dr. Peterson was incredibly helpful. He made sure I understood what was going on with my body and made sure I was well taken care of. I will absolutely use this location for future appointments.
