January 25, 2015

Thank you!

January 20, 2015

I would have benefitted from a discussion of anterior vs posterior hip replacement surgeries. I do not know why posterior was selected for me...??

January 19, 2015

Dr. Peters took time to answer all my questions and didn't rush me like some doctors do. He explained the pros and cons of surgery and exactly what my condition is in my x rays.

December 31, 2014

Dr. Peters is great as are the rest of staff. Happy New Year!

December 13, 2014

Dr. Peters is very concerned and engaged with my care.

November 21, 2014

Very professional and concerned.

November 16, 2014

Best orthopedic doctor I have been to.

November 12, 2014

Excellent experience all around.

November 11, 2014

My visit was for annual follow up on total knee there wasn't a lot to be said beyond cursory exam and a few questions. But Dr Peters and his staff were very courteous and glad Ithat my knee looked great with no post surgery problems.

November 08, 2014


October 17, 2014

My physician was excellent and the chief resident was amazingly helpful and kind, but the nurse assistant immediately after surgery receives the lowest marks I could possibly give.

October 16, 2014

My surgeon is proficient and I don't doubt his skill level but friendliness and bedside manner could be improved.

October 05, 2014

All's great.

September 29, 2014


September 25, 2014

very good experience

September 22, 2014

Dr. Peters was informative and concerned. His advice was invaluable as was his assistance in securing a needed appointment with a neurologist

September 20, 2014

Dr. Peters is the BEST!!

September 09, 2014

calmed a lot of fears when looking at surgery. Took the time and spoke with authority!

August 16, 2014

Senior resident and surgeon were excellent

August 15, 2014

i trust dr peters and his staff

July 25, 2014

Dr. Peters is to the point and confident leaving you with little questions, will only use Dr. Peters for othopeadic concerns from now on.

July 24, 2014

very good care and concern by all involved.

July 18, 2014

Dr Peters is excellent. So grateful for his replacing my knees with the greatest of skill and care. Every aspect of my visit was good. Friendly, courteous, caring office people, medical assistants, technicians, etc, and of course the best doctor. Thank you all.

July 14, 2014

We were so impressed with the level of knowledge and concern we experienced.

July 12, 2014

Dr. Peters explained carefully in words and X-rays why I shouldn't get a knee replacement at this time. Viewing the X-ray while we talked was particularly effective in explaining his case.

July 12, 2014

My whole hip replacement procedure was excellent from start to finish including all phone calls and visits. I recommend Dr. Peters even if no one asks.

July 07, 2014

Very patient and took the time to hear our concerns and reassure us that surgery may be a good decision for our daughter.

July 05, 2014

I am impressed with Dr. Anderson and of course I am always happy with Dr. Peters

June 15, 2014

all thumbs up all doc's should be like Dr peters

June 13, 2014


June 11, 2014

No complaints at all

June 09, 2014

This was a year follow-up, Dr. just needed to see me for a few minutes.

June 08, 2014

Dr Peters has a very high level of clinical expertise but it difficult to talk to

June 07, 2014

Staff are the best I could have dealt with. Very professional.

May 31, 2014

I felt that the attentiveness of the entire staff - from front desk to the doctor to the surgery scheduler - was top notch. I felt like I was important to them and not just another patient.

May 16, 2014

little wait time, I appreciate the binder of information needed, from prep, day of, day after, exercises etc. and the list of med equipment stores, home care, nursing homes. Thanks so much. I did have a few questions and the nurse called me right back. Amazing! Thank you, I feel great about the upcoming procedure.

May 13, 2014

I'm always asked who did my knee surgeries because I have done so very well and I am happy to recommend Dr. Christopher Peters. I have out-shined all who have had the same procedure here in Pocatello. I think a lot has to do also with his follow-up instructions.

May 12, 2014

My experience has only been positive. Therefore, I have recommended Dr. Peters to many friends who might possibly need his expertise.

May 07, 2014

Showed empathy and concern about my situation and offered a solution. answered my questions and I feel very confident he is the right doctor to help me!

May 01, 2014

I had a concern that if I asked for more pain control medications it would be looked upon as abuse. I explained that the physical therapy was causing a great deal of pain and I was taking more medication than intended. I was given the medication without feeling there was a stigma by the Nurse of Dr. Peters.

April 12, 2014

I do not believe the orthopedic doctors in our area are skilled and knowledgeable about joint replacements and many of them should not be allowed to do them! I have referred lots of folks to Dr. Peters, as I believe he is the BEST!

March 15, 2014

hard to communicate with. left as much as possible to staff really felt that he knew me only as a birthdate and right knee replacement

February 18, 2014

Wel pleased with the clinic

February 16, 2014

No reasonable explanation for my continued pain and poor outcome was given, despite my suggestions. No further testing, such as an MRI, was suggested to try to diagnose the problem. I felt very put off.

February 01, 2014

Don't know that doctors ever spend enough time with you. Of course I was seen by three people during this visit, the nurse, Dr. Anderson who looked at my incision and Dr. Peters who told me everything looked great. I didn't have any questions so I guess there was no reason for them spending any more time with me.

January 25, 2014

I was very happy with Doctors and staff

January 11, 2014

I would always enjoy more time with Dr. Peters. I so appreciate and enjoy his direct, clear answers and information. I do realize that there are many, many others who also need his time.

January 11, 2014

while surgery seemed to help, I still have some residual concerns that were not completely resolved concerning prognosis and were not resolved in meeting with surgeon.

January 11, 2014

I have been very pleased with the entire health care system at the University of Utah .With everyrything coordinated it makes it possible for us to travel from Nevada to receive our care.

December 14, 2013

Dr Peters and all his staff are excellent. I felt they listened to me, understood my feelings and were concerned about the level of care I received. I would recommend him to anyone.

December 03, 2013


November 11, 2013

Dr Petron and Dr Peters are both total professionals and made me feel very comfortable.

October 21, 2013

Have recommended Dr. Peters to others.

October 14, 2013

The doctor made me feel comfortable. I was very scared because I have had other surgeries but he made me feel like I was making the right decision.

October 07, 2013

Dr Peters is a rockstar. he is very kind, patient, informative and truly cares. He is extremely competent and I would trust him with my life.

October 07, 2013

Very confident in Doctor Peters and staff.

October 02, 2013

Very good experience and have already recommended Dr Peters and the Orthopedic Center to others.

September 25, 2013

all things explained well

September 09, 2013

I have confidence in Dr. Peters and have recommended him to others based upon my previous experience with him as my surgeon.

September 09, 2013

Have already lauded the experience to all my friends and family

September 03, 2013

I really mean these ratings. I have had the best experience working with Chris Peters and his staff. I really cannot say enough how pleased I am with the entire event from first meeting Dr Burkes to being referred to Dr Peters and having the surgeries from both.

August 12, 2013

I recommend this facility and its care providers all the time.

August 05, 2013

Dr. Peters and everyone else I talked to were all extremely polite and caring, and I have a very high opinion of each and every one of the people I dealt with. Dr. Peters was clear and concise on what needed to happen and how it was going to be done, and was also clear on what to expect after my surgery. I am completely comfortable with him performing the surgery, and am very happy that he will be the one doing it.

July 31, 2013

Dr. Peters and his Fellow were very supportive and clear in their information and provided great information and hope for a good recovery.

July 22, 2013

really doubt I will and have referred others to Dr. Peters' group

June 26, 2013

All the folks at the U of U Hospital were very helpful and provided a great experience.

June 24, 2013

Dr. Christopher Peters is simply the best.

June 24, 2013

Dr. Peters is a surgeon I have recommended. I was very impressed with his skill, his caring and concern for me, and my recovery.

June 21, 2013

In addition to the nurses, Dr. Patrick Mulkey, spent the most time with me before my first hip surgery. He was extremely careful and considerate in addressing my concerns and questions leading up to my first hip surgery. I was very anxious about the upcoming surgery. He did an excellent job of helping me understand the procedure, the prosthetic, the risks from the surgery and finally helped me feel comfortable that I was making an informed decision. Dr. Peters re-enforced Dr. Mulkey's comments and answers to my questions. I believed very strongly that I was in capable hands. I still think that way. The first surgery was so successful that I chose to have the left hip surgery as well as the right.

June 12, 2013

My only difficulty in recommending Dr Peters is how far out his appointments are booked, and how long it can take in the waiting room. Other than that, I would absolutely recommend him!

June 10, 2013

Smooth and professional

May 31, 2013

Very iformative and helpful

April 25, 2013

I feel Extrememely confident in Dr. Peters. I almost felt like the staff was a little shocked that we were so prepared to schedule surgery and had our questions in mind. We knew surgery was the only option, so together we were all ready, I feel great about my son's future.

April 22, 2013

It drives me crazy that people come into the exam room without introducing themselves! I feel like, who the heck are you and why are you asking me these questions? However, I often get a more detailed explanation of things from the (associate?) than I do from Dr. Peters. And with that explanation I also have received a slightly more positive prognosis. I would feel more confident if this was coming from Dr. Peters mouth.

April 16, 2013

I left feeling very confident that Dr. Chris Peters and his staff had my concerns about my knee very clear and I could really depend on them and their professionalism to help find a solution.

April 15, 2013

Dr Justin Haller was particularly helpful and spent a good amount of time listening to my needs. When Dr Peters came into the room he was well informed about my concerns and was able to suggest a course of Sinvisc which is helping.

April 09, 2013

Dr. Peters did well on the above questions but it was a considerable amount of time before he came in to talk to us. I not sure if this is because he was behind or if he was familiarizing himself with our case.

April 01, 2013

I wish I had been told ahead of the surgery what to expect in range-of-motion, as I am having a lot of trouble and pain with certain movements.

March 30, 2013

Have already referred Dr. Peters to a friend of mine that needs her knees done as well.

March 18, 2013

I've been very happy with Dr. Peters, himself. Communication between the front administration and the back clinical staff is less than ideal.

March 18, 2013

Excellent surgical result.

March 12, 2013


March 08, 2013

Great staff-excellent experience

February 18, 2013

Dr Peters is the best!

February 05, 2013

the doctor spent almost an hour thoroughly answering questions, explaining the procedures and addressing my concerns. It was a very helpful visit.

January 31, 2013

The explanation of my condition and healing was clear and reassuring.

January 28, 2013

I would have liked more specific information. There were also no options to the dr.'s choice of implants other than not having surgery.

January 14, 2013

Dr. Peters was very professional, did a thorough exam, and made sure all my questions were answered. I feel reassured about my approaching surgery in his care.

January 07, 2013


January 01, 2013

Excellent Therapist

December 28, 2012

I ha ve had a very positive experiencwith my hip replacement and feel the whole operation went very well

December 24, 2012

Dr. Peters is terrific both in his bedside manner and his surgical skills. I was so surprised that he came into the room for my checkup exactly on time and I did not have to wait at all. He answered my questions with specific data and attention to details.

December 19, 2012

Dr. Peters and staff did an excellent job with me.

December 18, 2012

We felt very confident and at ease with the dr in reviewing the problem and the upcoming procedure

December 03, 2012

As an afterthought, I would have appreciated more information about the prosthesis, and being spoken to in medical terminology, since that is more specific. I am concerned that I will not be able to speak with the surgeon prior to surgery, and I have questions.

December 03, 2012

seemed a little rushed

December 03, 2012

The associate who saw me first did not introduce himself to me and so I had no clue who I was talking to or why.

November 19, 2012

I have a hearing handicap and it was a little hard to hear the doctor (my wife heard everything)

November 17, 2012

The visit seemed kind of rushed. I had questions, but did not have time to aske them.

November 15, 2012

very fine

November 05, 2012

Dr. Peters made me feel stupid for coming in. Like I was coming in for no reason, even though it was the PT that recommended I come get something checked. He didn't seem to like that the PT asked that I come in. Also, when I asked him a question about pain his response was "Move to Arizona or just deal with." This response made me feel helpless and I left the office not very happy that I had to "just deal with it." On the other hand, Dr. Peters' resident was friendly and showed concern.

October 30, 2012

As good an experience one might expect in dealing with an injury!

October 30, 2012


October 29, 2012

In addition to being an excellent surgeon, Dr. Peters pays close attention to questions and answers them completely and clearly. I will highly recommend him to any friend or acquaintance who's facing knee or hip surgery.

October 15, 2012

I can understand big words! I appreciate as much information as possible.

October 08, 2012

I have sent other people to Dr. Peters and they have also had successful outcomes.

October 03, 2012

Very impressed,My Dr. came highly recommended by one of my other Dr.'s I was really pleased.

September 30, 2012

The provider seems to be reserved not gregarious but my main concern is the quality of care he will provide and I am confident that he will meet my expectations.

September 29, 2012

Dr Peter's is fabulousl. he replaced both of my knees, never had a problem with them and I anticipate the same with my hip replacement. I have always recommended Dr Peter's, he's the best.

September 03, 2012

I have recommended Dr. Peters to a friend who had surgery from him last month and was also pleased with his care.

August 14, 2012

Dr. Peters was very concerned with my situation and we talked about different situations to take

August 13, 2012

A more detailed explanation of how the proposed surgery will be performed would be appreciated.

August 13, 2012

Dr. Peters is an outstanding Orthopedic surgeon and when visiting with anyone about the surgeries on my knees always encourage them to see Dr. Peters.

July 30, 2012

Dr. Peters is an exellent doctor and he really knows what he is doing and i have found that out first hand. He is confident in what he does and i would highly recommend him to others.

July 10, 2012

I felt my concerns were adequately addressed, but more details about what to expect would have been appreciated.

July 05, 2012

Dr. Christopher Peters is the best!

June 18, 2012

Dr. Peters is an excellent doctor. Please do not let him leave, as he takes care of U at the U.

June 12, 2012

Care Provider since 2000 nothing but the best.

June 01, 2012

Very pleasant experience.

May 03, 2012

I feel "very" comfortable coming to the clinic and it is a relief to me to know I have Dr. Peters to help me with any further surgeries I may need. I definitely would recommend him to others.

April 26, 2012

Dr. Peters is excellent!

April 19, 2012

I thought that Dr. Peters was a very excellent doctor and was concerned with my leg problems and how to fix it. I felt that he really cared about my well being, and knew what was best for me even if what he suggested wasn't what i wanted at first. I felt a little intimidated by him at first but his intimidation came off as a confident doctor who was sure of what he was doing and he made it very easy to trust him and his opinions. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone. I feel like he can help alot of people.

April 06, 2012

Although the provider is not good at communication, I know he is a good surgeon so I would still recommend him.

March 22, 2012

Because it was my first visit, I didn't know what questions to ask about the surgery. It would have been nice to have a little more information up front about the surgery and recovery so I could have thought of those questions on the spot. I was given a large packet of information which I have since studied. The surgeon and nurse both told me that I can call any time and/or email to gain answers to my questions. This made me feel less nervous and as if they really care. I am confident they will answer all of my questions accordingly.

March 08, 2012

couldn't have asked for better care.

February 19, 2012

everyone there is fabulous and careful to do every thing they can.

February 02, 2012

I was here two years ago and had superlative care. I am happy to say it has not changed.

February 02, 2012

First visit with Dr. Peters - we are just getting to know him and the clinic system.

January 26, 2012

Both Fellow and Attending physician very good.

January 12, 2012

My entire experience with the care providers and facility has instilled a high degree of confidence in their skill and abilities to provide for my care. I would strongly recommend this care provider to anyone.

January 12, 2012

i have more confidence in dr peters then i have ever had in any doctor
