    Dr.Petersen is awesome! Got my finger put back together and had me in PT 2 weeks later getting movement back in it! – Dave
    Dr. Peterson has taken such amazing care of my 91 yr old mother. Very patient, and thorough. Before she saw him, her hand grip strength was less than 1 pound, and could not close her hand in a fist. Two fingers stuck out. She had a year of physical therapy in Calif, and an incorrect diagnosis from leading west coast facility. After his careful surgical intervention, and great physical therapy, she now has 15 pound grip strength in that hand and can make a fist. Not all cases are the same, but he has improved my mom’s life! – Mary
