good experience

January 14, 2017

Dr Peters did my hip replacement 10 years ago and with wonderful results. I never considered seeing anyone else for my other hip.

January 11, 2017

I would recommend dr. peters as I know he is an expert and is very friendly. I would warn who ever I recommend that it may be a wasted trip like mine was.

December 29, 2016

Dr. Peters is a bit standoffish, but comes highly recommended for his abilities. I was concerned when his first words indicated he wanted to avoid the orthopedic procedure I was there to consult for. I wasn't sure if he was trying to be humorous, or serious, or just probing me to ensure that a hip replacement really was necessary for my situation. I'm still not sure. Dr. Wengert was a more straightforward during his interaction with me.

December 11, 2016

I am very impressed with Dr Peters and resident Dr. Jacobson. Each spent time explaining my MRI and x-rays and the options I have before/instead of selecting surgery.

December 06, 2016

Dr. Peters and his orthopedic team are the very best, I have the utmost confidence and treatment in all of the staff.

November 06, 2016

Dr. Kim was very friendly as was Dr. Peters

November 03, 2016


October 14, 2016

I constantly brag on y knee replacement and Dr. Peters. I cannot express enough about how I am pain free. The pain I had for several years was horrible as I tried to work as a police officer. Word cannot express how great I feel now!

October 12, 2016

Over all it was an encouraging experience

October 08, 2016

Both the Doctor and the Physician Assistant visited and each had a different role. Both were very courteous, helpful, and friendly. A superb experience.

September 26, 2016

My left foot and ankle were really red and swollen. The attitude was that was not their expertise; the surgery site looked really good; but the doctor was not interested in helping me about the foot and ankle problem. I asked if compression stocking would help, and he eagerly said to try it for 2 weeks and then I could call to be recommended to another specialist. It seemed to me that the specialist should know about side effects to his surgery more.

September 25, 2016

I would have liked to have been asked what kind of life style I expect to pursue with my new knee. Also, what were my options for different types of knees. I wished I knew what was placed in me and why. Also, a copy of the X-ray would have been nice.

September 22, 2016

Both Jill Erickson and Dr. Peters were helpful and concerned. I did feel that Jill was upbeat,and optomistic, whereas Dr. Peters was a bit more blunt and realistic about possible upcoming surgery that I may eventually need. Both were thorough and knowledgeable and it was good to hear both points of view.

September 08, 2016

good experience

September 04, 2016

Overall great experience and satisfactory results.

August 13, 2016


August 07, 2016

I have always experienced outstanding service and care by Dr. Peters and the staff at the University orthopedic center. I highly recommend them for hip or knee problems.

August 01, 2016

dr. is a serious man but shows experience and care

July 31, 2016

I would have liked more information about options and risks. I feel this hospital has their favored protocal and is reluctant to vary.

July 31, 2016

Dr. Christopher Peters is an incredible orthopedic surgeon!!! I recommend him to any one who complains to me of orthopedic problems. The knee replacement I had in June was my second one, with the other knee being replaced only 16 months ago. Dr. Peters keeps up on the latest research and continues to improve his surgical practices! For example, for the recent surgery, he closed my incision using a "zipline" instead of staples, which was less invasive. He prescribed baby aspirin after the surgery for me instead of Warfarin because the research indicated aspirin was as effective as Warfarin with less dangerous side effects. I am a huge fan of Dr. Peters!!!!

July 28, 2016

Great Doctor and staff. I would always recommend him/them.

July 25, 2016

I have seen 4 doctors for this problem and Dr. Peters was the most concise and thorough. He spent a lot of time with me and explained things clearly and thoughtfully.

July 24, 2016

very nice to have a surgeon who is skilled at their profession

July 18, 2016

Dr. Peters and his Ortho team are the best! I would recommend anyone considering a knee or joint replacement to make an appointment. they are caring, compassionate to your healthcare needs, and will provide you with the very best care.

July 17, 2016

Our visit and the personnel were all impressive.

July 16, 2016

The entire staff was extremely thorough, and complete with communication, follow-up appointments, and pre-surgery information. I'm totally impressed!

July 12, 2016

very good

July 11, 2016

The surgeon was very optimistic and didn't mention risks. His assistant did cover some risks but not all. I am waiting to go to joint academy to get more questions answered.

June 28, 2016

I already have recommended Dr. Peters, and the University Orthopaedic clinic, to a few people.

June 22, 2016

I felt very well informed and confident that I will be receiving excellent care from this provider in the future.

June 14, 2016


June 04, 2016

I can't comment on this last .? until after the operation

May 31, 2016

I have called two different times with two different medication questions. Both calls were returned the same day and the PA and MA spent time to answer my questions completely. Very professional and at the same time, very pleasant in their demeanor. Dr. Peters seems to be a man of few words, but answered my questions when asked.

May 27, 2016

Dr. Peters is a great ortho surgeon. My 1st knee replacement was very successful and I am excited to get the other knee replaced.

May 19, 2016

The Dr, was fine it was the PA. or Na whatever the guy that spent the most time insulting me.

May 15, 2016

dr. Peters and staff are superb in every way.

May 12, 2016


May 09, 2016

All went very well

May 08, 2016

Doctor and resident spent extra time sharing information and answering questions

May 07, 2016

Dr Peters is a wonderful doc!

May 01, 2016

Dr Peters and staff clearly explained the condition of my knee and the alternatives for the future. I was given options and time to consider the treatment that was best for my current and future lifestyle. I appreciated the forthright and clear conversation. There was never any undue pressure, just the opposite.

April 27, 2016

Dr Peters is the best!

April 24, 2016

awesome service

April 24, 2016

Dr Peters is quite amazing. Surgery went excellent. I've had no complications and the pain has been minimal. I would recommend him to everyone needing a Total knee replacement. I've already started to spread the good word.

April 22, 2016

Dr. Peters is an excellent physician. He comes highly recommended from a major university from the east.

April 20, 2016

He was aware of what is happening with my current hip replacement and bone problems because of the information sent by my orthopaedic surgeon and additional x-rays he requested, as well as what I could explain about my current limitations. Dr. Peters didn't try to make things sound easy to repair, but explained what he could do to help my condition to improve and the amount of time to expect for recovery. No artificial bravado. I'd like to give him and the staff a PLUS Very Good - "6".

April 19, 2016

Dr. Peters answered all my questions completely, while helping me to decide on a plan of action.

April 17, 2016

I have seen Dr. Peters on other's recommendations, a former patient and my Primary Care Physician as well. He answered all my concerns and I did not feel rushed at all. I was treated with respect and caring and I felt very comfortable talking with his Assistant as well as with Dr. Peters. I had a good explanation of what would occur with a knee replacement and felt at ease getting the facts. I would recommend Dr. Peters and his staff you can be sure.

April 12, 2016


April 04, 2016

Asst., resident and surgeon were all excellent.

April 04, 2016

I went in for a consult on a knee replacement and Dr Peters advised against it saying I wouldn't be happy with the outcome - I wish I had asked more questions about what exactly that meant in terms of pain, reduced mobility, etc. even though I understood the jist of it.

March 30, 2016

We have been to a lot of doctors over the years but your staff are all the very best. We have never felt as though we were being rushed thru the appointment, have always had questions answered, even though I sometimes have some strange questions, and very comfortable with the whole staff. I have always felt real concern for my situation and comfort by everyone and since I'm old I can say that the doctors are all so handsome.

March 27, 2016

It was as if I was the only patient there. The doctor was very personal & professional.

March 12, 2016

Dr. Peters operated on my wife as well and did a superb job. He recognized us, explained my need for surgery completely, was both friendly and professional.

February 28, 2016

Very very impressed with the entire process. Everyone was very professional and did a great job

February 18, 2016

Excellent staff

February 18, 2016


February 15, 2016

I have had a great experience with 2 total hip replacement this last year. I appreciate their expertise.

February 04, 2016

I received bad news about my knee and was quite stunned so I didn't ask anymore questions or ask to see both xrays to compare them. I would have been helpful for him to have both xrays to see the problem better

February 03, 2016

All providers showed care and concern, were not rushed, provided lots of information and answered all questions.

January 31, 2016

I 'be already recommended Dr Peters to some people who are looking to have knee replacement. My experience was very positive.

January 27, 2016

Dr Peters is my miracle man. I can't say enough good things about him and his team!

January 25, 2016

My experience with Dr. Peters and his staff has been outstanding. I had my first TKA one year ago and the second one 7 weeks later. This visit was for the one year follow-up for both. Every visit i have ever had to the UOC has been professional and most of all, so very welcoming and friendly. Dr. Peters skill is unparalleled in my opinion. I had very advanced OA and very deformed knees. He straightened them perfectly and my post-op course was so easy that it was hard to believe I had had major surgery. I cannot recommend him or his staff more highly.

January 24, 2016

I could not have expected a better experience. BRAVO! to the entire team.

January 23, 2016

Excellent care through the entire surgery/recovery process.

January 12, 2016

I was very impressed!

January 11, 2016

Dr. Peters is awesome, he did an excellent job on my knee replacement. I am very appreciative of that.

January 10, 2016

I haven't any complaints.

January 09, 2016

I always feel that I receive great care from all the staff in this office. I am comfortable and confident with all that I have heard and been advised to do from all the staff! : )

January 07, 2016

The professionals I had dealings with were excellent, because I have had both shoulders and both knees replaced - Dr. Peters is the best experience I have had. My recovery was easier, faster and less discomfort.

December 17, 2015


December 06, 2015

Very good

November 23, 2015

Dr. Peters and his Staff are excellent. They are kind, caring and courteous. Dr. Peters did a wonderful job repairing my knee and getting me back to walking. I greatly appreciate the time he took to take care of me. Dr. Peters deserves a kudos and an at-ta boy all in one. I tell every one that asks me about the Dr. that worked on my knee, that there is NO ONE better than Dr. Peters.

November 22, 2015

The Intake Nurse? (Josh) was excellent and he was very careful to be attentive and caring while asking questions and entering data on his computer and related well to us. Ditto Heather. Drs. Brothers and Peters were informative, calm and kind. I appreciated that while they're both really busy, they were not brusque.

November 12, 2015

Over all good experience

November 01, 2015

Every Pleasant experience,

October 31, 2015

I feel I receive the highest quality of care here by the entire staff!!! Love them all! : )

October 26, 2015

Very good

October 20, 2015

Felt the doctor gave me the best advice regarding my situation and gave me the information I need to make a decision. Did not feel rushed and he spent as much time as needed to answer my questions.

October 16, 2015

the dr made me feel nervous about the surgery

October 11, 2015

Dr. Peters & Jill Erickson are the best!

October 05, 2015

The Dr. told me my options and let me decide which way to go. Each option was explained very well.

September 20, 2015


September 14, 2015


September 11, 2015

Dr Peters is one of the most professional and caring individuals

September 06, 2015

I've have a great deal of respect and confidence in Dr. Peters. I recommend him to anyone I discuss joint problems with.

September 06, 2015

The intern and fellow answered all my questions regarding hip replacement, and Dr. Peters filled in info about my specific case.

September 06, 2015

I think the Dr was tired, I had a lot of questions but I felt he was not very interested and seemed to glaze over the answers, I decided it would be better to ask the rest of my questions on-line through MyChart. I was disappointed as we had waited over an hour and 1/2 to see him, but I understand some days can be difficult, so I am not upset, I was just disappointed as this has been a very difficult surgery for me with a lot of pain and things I don't understand. I tried to ask questions, but the DR seemed tired and uninterested so I didn't follow through with all of them (it was a long wait and was painful sitting in the waiting room). I just felt like a number. I know that is my fault, but at the time I was feeling a bit emotional and didn't want to show it. I am getting better answers about my condition from my physical therapist and pharmacist, which is a disappointment but I can live with it. In the past I have highly recommended Dr Peters to everyone I talk to (over 14 years worth). I am not sure now. There was never any apology from the DR about having to wait so long...that seemed uncaring. I was surprised. I have addressed my other concerns in an email in mychart. Thank you

September 05, 2015

In a "nice" manner he called me fat and had a script in his head as to what to say to me about it. He "read" me the fat riot I've heard it for friends of mine before. If he was really interested in knowing what my weight actually was I'm sure he could have had me step on a scale. Instead he went with what number I could remember and more than likely added to that number. His tact was good and words were minimal and small. Not ever in my life have I had a doctor tell me this nor have I ever felt so insulted. He had no plan to solve this "issue" he expects my primary doctor to handle this "issue" and I can contact him later (which will not happen). He offered me no solution to my hip pain other than to lose weight. He suggested that my pain may not be due to my hip dysplasia but did not provide an alternative theory as to what would be causing my pain. He implied that other doctors were even stricter about their weight protocols and no one else would help me with my hip. I hqve had a long tenuos year and have fought to see Dr.Peters from the first day I heard his name. I have worked on my mental and physical problems in some high stress situations this year. One of which inculdes my poor self body image inculding my eating disorder in which I did not provide adequate amounts of food for my body. This has been the first year in which my body has had food everyday since the summer of 2005. My roommate and I expressed cornern to his staff about my PTSD and seemed to be ingorned o

August 30, 2015

Dr.Peters is a great Doctor

August 25, 2015

I didn't feel like there was time to discuss my questions regarding the procedure, the recovery experience etc. I am grateful that there was a notebook provided that addressed some of my concerns about recovery and insurance coverage etc. These were not addressed at all in our interview with the doctor. I went from thinking I might need a total knee to scheduling surgery in one giant leap. I do think it is the right decision, since it is getting progressively hard to live with and ibuprofin and simming only temporarily relieve my discomfort to a limited degree.

August 24, 2015

dr. peters didn't want to go into detail about my necrosis but wanted me to go out and do things and not worry about it. it's difficult to do that but I'm trusting he had good reason for saying that.

August 11, 2015

Dr. knows about lack of concern regarding pain meds when I left after surgery

August 09, 2015

Dr. Peters and his staff are outstanding!

July 29, 2015

Care provider has to address the issue of wait times from scheduled time. He personally would not tolerate it!!

July 29, 2015

Over all it was a good experience. Dr. Peters and the assistants were very friendly and amazed at my ability to recover from 2 knee surgeries so very well. Dr. Peters called me a "rock star".

July 25, 2015

Dr Peters replaced my right knee 7 years ago and it was very successful. I would not consider any one else to replace the left one.

July 13, 2015

Having not used this provider before I really don't know about #9 but I have heard very good comments about him.

June 21, 2015

Dr. Peters is the best! I know many people who see him and, I have sent many to see him

June 21, 2015

I've already sent patients his way.

June 20, 2015

Difficult situation. Balancing act between my husband getting a heart transplant and me needing knee replacement surgery.

June 19, 2015

This was my first surgery by Dr. Peters at the University of Utah. Everyone involved in my care was professional, competent, and caring.

May 19, 2015

I felt Dr Peters was awesome in settling my fears and answered my questions that made me feel he wanted my best care

May 19, 2015

Doctor Peters did an excellent job

May 13, 2015


May 11, 2015

Dr. Peters has a terrific reputation and that counts for a lot in a first visit. I would have liked a little more dialogue/discussion about my particular situation if for nothing else than to feel a little more connection. I want to know he is a highly skilled surgeon, and I do. I also need to feel like he cares, even if it is only when I am in front of him. I know the responses are usually "who cares about bedside manner if he/she is a good surgeon. But there is more to the experience than just the surgery, especially when a person is coming out of a bad surgical experience, and one that has necessitated leaving home for the next one.

May 10, 2015

very professional

May 04, 2015

Having a very complicated situation, Dr. Christopher Peters has been a blessing in my life. His expertise and skills as an adult reconstruction specialist were put to the test and the results are awesome! The surgery was a success and I'm very thankful for my association with him.

April 27, 2015

I voiced concern about several issues regarding pain, the failure of my right knee to improve, and appearance of lesion type skin deformities, and constant low spine-hip area pain and was told the same thing since my first knee surgery-watch it and give it time. I inquired about a possible manipulation for my right knee because it hasn't responded to therapy and was told it had to be done within 3 months of surgery. That was a real slap in my face considering at every appointment after right knee surgery, I have had problems with the right knee not responding. Something should have been done.

April 19, 2015

Again, Everyone was wonderful.

April 19, 2015

From the beginning, I have been impressed with all of the staff of Dr. Peters.

March 30, 2015

all good

March 28, 2015

Dr Peters and Dr Montanez were very personable and easy to talk to. my concerns were addressed in a professional manner.

March 23, 2015

Dr. Peters is an amazing provider!!!!

March 22, 2015

Dr. Peters is Awesome

March 15, 2015

Dr. Peters and his resident answered my questions and gave me praise for how well I was doing with the new joint. I had worked hard and to know that I had succeeded gave me encouragement to proceed with having the second knee done in another six weeks. I am very very happy with the results of my surgery!

March 02, 2015

Dr Peters, Jill Erickson and the whole team are so good. Dr Peter's nurse Heather Greenwall is so friendly and accommodating and she remembers every detail of you as a person. I am glad all of my surgeries are now completed but, in a way I wish I had more. The overall experience from start to finish has, twice now, been perfect.

March 02, 2015

pleasant experience

February 22, 2015

After an x-ray it was determined that after my knee replacement surgery, there was a small chip of bone that had broken off of my knee cap. This was new news for both Dr. Peters and myself. I was given the opportunity to ask questions, but I really didn't know many to I was taken by surprise. I thought of those that I could, and they were answered, but I feel a better explanation could have been given. I would have liked to have seen my x-ray, and perhaps given a chance to reschedule another appointment at a later date (sooner than a year) or an opportunity to call and talk to Dr. Peters with questions I had at a later time. I feel Dr. Peters is very competent and very busy, however I felt I needed a little more discussion about the new finding. I haven't, as yet seen my appointment info on "My Chart" as that might be an opportunity for me to ask questions. p

February 08, 2015

I couldn't ask for better medical care. This team is top notch!

January 27, 2015


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

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.

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.

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

Have already lauded the experience to all my friends and family

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 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

Excellent surgical result.

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 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

seemed a little rushed

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

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

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

February 02, 2012

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

January 26, 2012

Both Fellow and Attending physician very good.

January 12, 2012

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

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.
