Dr. Ryan Peterson - Patient Reviews and Testimonials

Empathy, compassion & a genuine desire to help
From the moment that I met Dr. Peterson, I immediately felt safe. I was greeted with nothing but empathy, compassion & a genuine desire to help. Dr. Peterson is extremely patient in understanding any concerns & issues that I may have regarding not only my physical health, but also the possible underlying factors. Unfortunately, it can be a rarity to find a doctor with such a true willingness to address health issues at the root of their cause & not only treat the symptoms. I can honestly say that at [my age], I feel like I am in the best shape of my life & I owe a huge part of that to Dr. Peterson & his guidance throughout my process of healing. I would highly recommend Dr. Peterson to anyone that is seeking ways to heal & achieve their optimal level of health. And I can promise that you will not only be greeted with an incredible amount of solution-oriented knowledge, but also a warm & loving embrace. Thank you Dr. Peterson!

The most wonderful and caring doctor
Dr. Peterson is honestly the most wonderful and caring doctor that one can only wish for! The amount of ACTUAL CARE provided by him goes above and beyond what one could only imagine.
When first meeting him, it is extremely comforting to be spoken to as an actual patient. Those who have been searching for a doctor know how it feels to be treated as a number with an insurance policy and I must say that he is the complete opposite. His knowledge and experience with a wide variety of health issues definitely eased my anxiety about finding the right doctor who I can trust! I feel as if he is one of the only doctors I have visited that treated me not only as a patient, but as an individual person. My experience with him has always been amazing. I have never felt judged or rushed and I have been able to bring up my concerns without hesitation. I love and trust him as my doctor so much that I continue to recommend my family and friends to see him first, and we are all proud to say that there are absolutely no regrets!

I trust him wholeheartedly
Dr. Peterson is one of the most amazing doctors/persons/humans I have ever been lucky enough to meet. The utmost care and genuine attentiveness he brings to every one of his patients is admirably worthy. I don't know one person I wouldn't recommend to him as I know he treats each and every patient with the same love and respect. I trust him wholeheartedly, and I don't use that word (trust) lightly. He has helped me in so many ways and has definitely improved my quality of life. *Thank you Dr. P, for always having a huge smile on your face and always making me feel like I have been heard! :)

1000% recommend him
Doctor Ryan Peterson is truly a master of his craft. I have recommended him to many friends and family.

Under his care you can feel the compassion and dedication that this man has for his job. I am forever grateful for his services and would 1000% recommend him to anyone seeking pain management!

He saved my life
Dr. Peterson is one of the most kindest doctors I've had the pleasure of meeting. I was an addict for 23 years and found myself at my wits end. I was completely broken not only mentally but physically and emotionally as well. I was in dark and seemingly hopeless place which I believed there was no escaping. Then I was introduced to Dr. Peterson and that's when my life changed. Not only did he save my life, but he did not judge me and always made me feel like a real person....not a hopeless addict. His knowledge and encouragement is amazing. He helped me not only medically but also and MOST IMPORTANTLY showed me unconditional love at a time where I did not have any amount of love for myself. If you want to be seen by the best, And have your life truly impacted Dr Peterson is the doctor for you.

He truly cares
I grew up in a medical family...I have been around doctors my entire life. I say that to emphasize how incredible Dr. Peterson truly is. I have never met a more compassionate person, much less doctor. He is incredible knowledgeable, explains everything, he is your advocate, he truly cares. The impact he's made in my life is tremendous. His resume far exceeds your average doctor. My mother...looked at his background and was big time impressed. That's rare with her. Book the appt, he's the best.

Brianna P.

Best Doctor

Eternally grateful
Dr. Peterson has single handily helped me manage and control my chronic pain. I suffered for 10+ years, bouncing from doctor to doctor and specialist to specialist until I found Dr. Peterson. Over the course of the last couple years he's personalized and shaped a pain management program directly to my needs and my goals. I used to be unable to walk more than half a mile, and last summer I was able to take a 10 day trip to Europe where I walked an average of 25,000 steps a day! I'll be eternally grateful I was able to find him, and I recommend him to anyone who's in pain!

The Best At His Practice
I do NOT know how to Thank Dr. R. PETERSON enough. I have been struggling with my lower back since age of 17 and finally I met him 2016 and it was a life changing decision to trust his practice. And he got hands of an angel, didn't even feel the needles. Thanks a million Dr. PETERSON. Best Regards.

A-List Doctor
Dr. Ryan Peterson has been treating me for 3 years now. He is the only doctor that can get me out of pain and back on feet at work. I am a hair dresser for over 20 years. My back has seen better days. I would follow this man off of a cliff to see him work his magic.
Charlet M.

Great Doctor
Dr. Peterson is awesome! I have ben struggling with pain for many, many years and for as young as I am (28) there really should not be a specific reason for it. He is so understanding, he takes his time with his appointments and is very willing to explain what might be causing the pain. I have also had him do a few injections and he always takes the time to explain what exactly will happen and he does this at the "pre-op" appointment. He also has come to check on me and talk to me minutes before I have gone back for the actual procedure. He is very knowledgable, friendly and has excellent bedside manner. Great doctor if you are struggling with pain. Can't say enough great things!
Katelyn S.
