Patient Reviews

The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Peterson.

“Dr. Peterson was a kind and caring surgeon who explained what I had done and what he was going to do to fix it. (Was an emergency). He told me the pain would be so much less after the surgery and he was right! So far, everything he said about the recovery has been correct! I appreciate his honesty! I’d recommend him to anyone in a heart beat!”

“Partial knee replacement. Hobbled into the hospital at 6:30, walked out the same day by noon — great nurses and excellent doctor from beginning to end. I have never given a 5-star rating to anyone or anything in my life, but this was 5 stars. I know it takes a "community" of good people to pull something like this off. Thank you, everyone.”

“I am so pleased with the care I received from Dr Peterson. He listened to my concerns and needs, provided options and education to make sure I understood what would take place. The process was very smooth from Pre-Op education, to answering the questions I entered into the Pulse app both before and after my surgery. I have never felt I was able to contact my Surgeon and expect such rapid response. Wow! Dr Peterson was attentive and professional with my care. He was as pleased as I am about the outcome I have had with my Total Knee!”

“Dr. Blake Petersen was approachable, quite friendly and he was easy to communicate with, which began with our first interview in the Emergency Room, continued throughout my stay at the hospital following the surgery to repair my broken ankle and during all of the follow-up appointments. Dr. Petersen is not aloof, nor does he project any airs of superiority whatsoever. He is confident in his approach and demeanor and, therefore, he inspires confidence in his patients regarding the upcoming surgical procedures and rehabilitation thereof. In short, we are very lucky to have such a wonderful young surgeon to support the surgical needs of our community!”

“My experience with Dr.Peterson has been all good. I am overweight and really couldn't exercise let alone walk. He didn't treat it as a big issue or make me feel horrible about my weight. He was very optimistic and encouraging. I did have a total knee replacement, and almost three weeks later I'm doing better and walking better than I have in a long time. I would recommend Dr.Peterson and the staff. The Pulse App communication is so easy and helpful. I am very grateful for Dr. Peterson's care.”
