I love that dr. Petersen will take time to listen to all my questions and answer them at the well child check ups.

April 07, 2016

due to ongoing illnesses I decided it was time for my daughter to see her primary Doctor. I am so glad that we did. dr Peterson was very informative and when I asked questions she never dismissed them and addressed them appropriately and took the time to talk to me and discuss all possibilities along with why she felt one way or another. she was much more personable than most of the urgent care doctors that we have seen

March 22, 2016

I absolutely love Dr.Petersen and I recommend her to everyone I get the chance to. So glad we found her.

January 11, 2016

We were told by the reservationist / receptionist that we would love the doctor we were seeing. It was true.

January 11, 2016

Dr. Petersen is amazing!!!! I brought my daughter in worried about her sudden cutting of her legs and and anxiety and depression. Dr. Petersen took her issues very seriously and treated my daughter with incredibly kindness and showed great support for her and for me. On top of beginning treatment for her depression she also had Julio come and speak with my daughter and then with me. Because of Dr. Petersen's care in treating the whole person our daughter is doing much better and we are moving forward with our plan of action. We have hope and we are watching our daughter improve daily!

December 03, 2015

Dr. Petersen is amazing. She called me back after I left and far exceeding closing time to talk more about my daughters condition. She had spent extra time looking over her chart, etc. to try to help think if a solution. It means so much when it's your child. Thank you Dr. Petersen!!

May 10, 2015

i loved how she asked us what we thought!

March 04, 2015

Dr Sarah Petersen is wonderful!!! My little boy has asthma and was sick with a respitory illness. Dr. Petersen helped me understand the things I needed to watch for. This became very important later that evening when my son had a full blown Asthma attack. Dr. Petersen called me on my cell as I was driving my son to the ER and gave me more info and after we hung up she made the ER aware we were coming. I really appreciate the time she takes to help me understand what I need to do to take care of my child!!!

February 17, 2014

I really like Dr. Peterson, but I don't know if I can wait as long as we did for a well child check again - it was very difficult to wait with a baby who was getting tired & hungry in a super hot room!

Dr. Petersen is always great!

November 26, 2013

She seemed a little rushed this visit. I had a lot of questions and didn't asked most of them because she seemed to be in a hurry.

November 11, 2013

university healthcare has treated my family like we are just another customer. we do not feel like University Healthcare views us- your patients- as human beings in your eyes. get over your institution and policies and earn some humanity.

November 11, 2013

I was very pleased!

October 14, 2013

Dr. Petersen spent a lot of time with us, even though I know she had other patients waiting. I really appreciate the time she spend dedicated to my daughter.

I was VERY pleased with Dr. Petersen. She took time to talk to me about everything and was very compassionate and sweet towards my daughter and I. I felt like she was not only my doctor but my friend and that is very important for me. She allowed plenty of time to talk about any concerns or questions I had. I will definitely be recommending this office and Dr. Petersen.

March 19, 2013

Dr Petersen is amazing, we love her!

March 01, 2013

Our daughter use to go to Dr. Salek, and since she moved, we needed a new pediatrician. I am so glad that went and seen Dr. Petersen. The time she spent with us is priceless. I would recommend her to anyone. I do wish she was at the clinic more often

February 18, 2013

we love Dr Peterson

February 04, 2013

Dr Petersen was great. She was willing to listen to our concerns and even sent the prescription to the pharmacy prior to us leaving.

February 01, 2013

Dr. Petersen was great. I could tell she was busy but she stayed with us and then inbetween her other patients she would check up on us and make sure we were doing well. After my daughters "procedure" she came in and presented a game plan and had the script ready for us in the pharmacy downstairs.

December 31, 2012

Love Dr Peterson!

December 19, 2012

Love Dr Petersen. She is amazing with my kids.

November 21, 2012

Dr Salek was our pediatrician before, so this was out first time with Dr Petersen and we really loved her!!

November 12, 2012

Dr Peterson is always great. She was alerted to the fact that we were having trouble meeting our original scheduled time and ws still willing to see us to accommodater us.

October 12, 2012

Sarah is Awesome!

September 28, 2012

Thorough and accommodating

September 21, 2012

We always request Dr Peterson.

September 19, 2012

Dr. Petersen is hands down one of the best physicians I have ever had the pleasure of meeting with. I have recommended her numerous time and will continue to do so!!

September 18, 2012

I always expect a long wait to see the doctor when I'm there. Usually 30-60 minutes does not sit well with very young kids. Its a long wait every times.

September 17, 2012

Again, grateful to have such a wonderful provider. Look forward to a long term patient/provider relationship.

September 13, 2012

Dr. Petersen was very friendly and patient with us. She answered all of our questions pertaining to this visit. She also answered questions we had for a while regarding some other problems she had been having. We where grateful for her insight and knowledge.

April 12, 2012

Dr. was open to questions, listened well, responded professionally and completely to those questions, and took the time needed for me to feel comfortable with the visit and the care provided to my little boy. The wait to speak with the Dr. was a bit longer than I would have hoped for, but I was happy to trade a few minutes of waiting to having a good experience with the Dr.

April 10, 2012

She talked directly to me

March 28, 2012

The entire staff there is amazing, the BEST experience we have ever had at a hospital. We have finally found the pediatrician for our kids.

March 13, 2012

Dr Petersen is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. She is very thorough and explains everything she is doing step by step. I recommend her to everyone I can!

March 06, 2012

Do not like that doctor does not take our decisions into consideration. No personalized care.

February 23, 2012

I LOVE that with the early signs of an ear infection we were given a Rx with the request to wait 2 days to see if it developed - no need to come back if it did.

February 16, 2012

Dr. Peterson seemed to truly want to help us. They both listened very well and actually seemed to process what we told them and used it to give us a diagnosis and care plan. They didn't seem to be in a hurry to just get in and get out which, for us, was very refreshing. They also made sure we understood the plan and what was going on. Overall, we were VERY satisfied with this visit!

February 09, 2012

Dr Petersen was very professional and friendly

January 26, 2012

I love Dr. Petersen. She always takes the time to go over everything I am worried about with my son. She takes great care of us every time!

January 24, 2012

I always recommend this clinic as I love the staff, all the information provided and care provided

January 12, 2012

My son & I were both impressed with Dr. Sarah Petersen, we felt that she was genuinely interested in Michael, she was very kind and spoke directly to him, rather than to me, he is 16 so that was great. Michael hasn't really had a Primary Care Physician.....I am pleased to say that he does now. We both appreciate the information that she printed out for us, it is a great referencing tool. Thank you Dr. Sarah Petersen.

January 10, 2012

Very impressed with Dr. Petersen, and will be recommending her to friends.
