New Patients

Dr. Peterson welcomes new patients in his office. Most people who call the office will be seen the same day or the next day.

New patients should arrive about 10 minutes before their scheduled appointment and bring their insurance information along. A first appointment generally lasts about 30 minutes.

The first visit includes a detailed history and exam as well as treatment. Dr. Peterson does not take x-rays at his office. If x-rays are required he will make arrangements for them at another facility. Follow-up appointments last about 15 minutes.

The office usually runs on schedule so there is generally very little waiting for a scheduled appointment.
