Dr. Peterson is simply the best. She is always thoroughly engaged and alert to the complications of my medical history and the most current research that might throw light on my case. I know I'm in good hands with her.

May 17, 2014

Dr. peterson is the verygood at explaining everything and helping me to make decisions about my EoE.

Doctor Perterson is the absolute best Doctor in this field in my opinion. She cares about me and my health.

March 20, 2014

Dr. Peterson was great, great bedside manner, great advice, etc

February 27, 2014

While seeing Dr. Peterson about GI issues I mentioned some other problems that had nothing to do with her. She was happy to provide a referral and got me an appointment in a different clinic the next week. Dr. Peterson is an exceptionally good doctor for EoE and her care doesn't end with her specialty.

January 24, 2014

Dr. Peterson is excellent.

January 08, 2014

In my several visits with Dr. Peterson I have been thoroughly impressed with her. In fact, I have heard from other physicians of her knowledge, expertise, and caring. She has wonderful 'bedside manner' and has always been willing to take the time to explain things and consult with me.

December 13, 2013

Dr. Peterson is wonderful. I hope to emulate her. She addressed ALL of my questions and concerns. She spoke to me at my understanding level. She is a genuine person and really cares about what she does.

November 21, 2013

very good

November 01, 2013

If Dr. Peterson leaves I will probably seek help for my EoE elsewhere. You have no one to replace her. Do whatever you have to do to keep her here so I can stay here too.

September 23, 2013

I am just still a little lost about what is going on and why I was diagnosed as I was.

September 21, 2013

I loooooove the Friday Dream Team!! Go, team, go!

September 03, 2013

Dr. Estelle Harris is amazing, a saving grace. She's absolutely incredible! Smart, knowledgable, detailed, caring, passionste & dedicated to sincerely helping me and my quality of life.

August 05, 2013

Dr. Peterson gave me my treatment options. I was part of the decision in my treatment. As long as Dr. Peterson is at the U of U I will continue to be a patient there.

July 23, 2013

Dr. Peterson is the best, I could not ask to be in better hands!

July 22, 2013

I was really happy with the amount of time Dr. Peterson spent with me and the genuine concern she took to look at me as a unique individual. I would recommend her without hesitation.

July 08, 2013

My physician showed exceptional care and expertise on my treatment and illness. She took the time to explain thoroughly my options and choices. She showed expert knowledge on my illness. And she showed empathy and compassion for my sickness troubles. She explained a clear course of treatment for my healing. I highly recommend and praise Dr. Petersen as an excellent physician and health care provider.

May 14, 2013

Doctor Kathy Peterson is a brilliant doctor who CARES! That is a hard combination for anyone to have. She is patient and understanding and cares.

May 06, 2013

Dr. Peterson is the reason I choose the U of U. Otherwise I would go someplace else.

April 01, 2013

I'd wait hours to see Dr Peterson if I had too. I think she's the best and usually very punctual. I think she may have found what has been pestering me for years. We'll find out on my upcoming ultrasound.

March 25, 2013

Dr. Peterson was very thorough, engaged, and asked more questions than many doctors I've seen. My problems have been complex and recalcitrant. She had me bring records and spent the time to look/read them all. I had a late day appointment (I suspect she worked me into her very busy schedule) so she had to input much of the inforamtion from CT scans, etc. but she did not make me feel rushed. She is coordinating with other physcians handling my care to ensure continuity and that I am getting the best care. Her coordinators had left the clinic for the day by the time I left and I had forgotten to ask the doctor about follow-up care. It's been diffcult trying to work through her clinic coordinators to get lab results and other information.

March 18, 2013

I am extremely impressed with Dr. Peterson. She is obviously passionate about the field she has chosen and gave me great confidence in her ability and desire to help mitigate my health problems.
