September 26, 2016

Dr. Peterson is the best! I always feel like she cares about me personally and my issues. Wish there were more of her around!

September 10, 2016

I have known Dr. Peterson for a long time. She has gone out of her way to take care of me and I really appreciate it. I know that my condition is very frustrating for her but she is working hard to help me get better. I am very glad that she took the time to check on me when I have been admitted because I know that she is doing it on her time off.

September 04, 2016

Spent more than enough time with me and listened very well to my concerns.

August 22, 2016

I have always had great care in Dr. Peterson's clinic, though this is the first opportunity I have taken to complete a survey. Dr. Peterson is extremely intelligent, honest, candid and caring. She shows genuine care, even empathy, for her patients' unique needs. Most importantly to me, she demonstrates a commitment to working in the best interest of her patients based on those unique needs. The sense I get from my visits is that she is very invested in the research and advancement/improvement of her discipline.

June 12, 2016

Dr. Katheryn Peterson as well as her protege, Gida I think her name was. They were both very nice and respectful. I felt very comfortable talking with them.

May 18, 2016

Dr. Peterson is incredible. I have never been to a more sincere, caring, and understanding physician. she was incredible in taking my concerns seriously and working through a diagnosis. I wouldn't want to see anyone else.

May 04, 2016

Dr. Peterson is an outstanding provider. She is a unique blend of compassion and intelligence. She listens thoroughly, asks unassuming questions, and then sites recent research when planning the direction in which to take my care. She searches for answers herself and is not threatened by patient participation in care. She also knows when to refer out and follows through on doing so. I actually look forward to visits with her (who likes to go to the doctor?) because I'm confident I will gain what I need next to improve my health. When it turned out my GI problems were due to a genetic disorder, she took it upon herself to contact Genetics, study up on it, and learn how to screen other patients for it as well. She's an invaluable mix of curiosity, proficiency, and caring that I'm glad to have on my team.

March 24, 2016

Dr. Petersen spent more time with me than I am sure she had available. She went out of her way to answer all of my questions and ease my concerns. She was amazing.

March 12, 2016

Dr Peterson is the most passionate and thorough doctor I've ever seen.

March 05, 2016

Only one Dr has ever been better ,but that is because I got to keep my mom longer

January 09, 2016

She is an amazing physician who really cares and has an immense amount of knowledge and experience. A+

December 14, 2015

Dr. Peterson is the best GI doctor in the valley. I highly recommend her.

December 05, 2015

Dr. Peterson has gone above and beyond to monitor my overall well-being - not just the symptoms of my UC but also the side effects of the medications I've had to take and other body systems that might be connected to my GI problems. Her bedside manner is friendly and witty. It's always clear she's tracking all the nuances of my particularly difficult case, asking relevant questions, occasionally consulting her colleagues for their opinions, and keeping me informed of recent advances in treatment options. The whole team at Clinic 3 seems to work together very well these days.

November 11, 2015

Dr. Peterson was excellent. She was very knowledgeble and had excellent bedside manner. She took my complaints/symptoms seriously and had an actionable plan to pursue, which honestly surprised me as I had been dismissed by another GI and expected the appointment to be unproductive.

October 30, 2015

I have received this procedure multiple times, this was the most efficient and quickest yet. I was very pleased.

October 29, 2015

Yes, I would recommend the center, but it's really the surgeon, (and the IV nurse) Dr. Peterson who I would actually recommend.

October 29, 2015

The physician was very very good, very informative, took time.

October 29, 2015

the IV nurse was excellent

September 26, 2015

Love my doctors

September 24, 2015

I still have not received my results yet and it's been over 2 weeks.

September 11, 2015

Dr. Peterson is an outstanding physician. Exceptionally knowledgeable generous with her time, and the 'best' "bed-side" manner I have ever experienced!!!

September 11, 2015

Dr. Kathryn Peterson performed the EGD procedure. She invites questions and answers them fully and completely. I would recommend her to anyone needing treatment in her area of specialty. She is extremely generous with her time making certain that all patient questions and concerns have been fully addressed. This was the forth EGD procedure I have had with three different physicians so in fact, I do have some experience to judge her performance.

September 04, 2015

The entire staff was very professional, caring, and competent. The only thing that tainted the whole process was a complete failure of an electronic device that was supposed to record critical information thus rendering some of the endoscopy useless.

September 04, 2015

Such a kind and wonderful group of people. Thank you all for your wonderful care, Dr. Kathryn Peterson, Torrey, Mike and Erin.

September 04, 2015

All the staff and physician were very warm and caring.

September 04, 2015

Felt very well taken care of.

August 28, 2015

Dr. Peterson is fabulous and the staff and Nurse are wonder and do a marvelous job.

August 15, 2015

I was so pleased with my visit. I am so impressed by my experience. Dr. Peterson was excellent! Her bed side manner, and knowledge of my disease made me have such a positive outlook. I feel so taken care of. Wow, thank you for changing my outlook on providers. I truly feel grateful and lucky to have found such a quality provider.

August 11, 2015

I wish every medical encounter was as great as this one thanks to the sincere kindness of those who cared for me.

August 11, 2015

Best doctor and nurse ever!

August 11, 2015

The kindest nurse and doctor I have ever met (and I've met a lot)! This was the best care I have ever received.

July 12, 2015

All went well. The remodeling was very nice! Impressed!

July 12, 2015

My doctor was very good!

July 07, 2015

Dr. Peterson and the nurses were wonderful to explain everything due to it was my first visit there

July 05, 2015

I WAS TOLD TO BE THERE 15 MIN EARLY THEN WE WAITED 30 MIN. BEFORE BEING TAKEN TO THE PREP ROOM. ThE DR. WAS GREAT SHE TALKED TO ME ABOUT HER CONCERNS AND WHY SHE WANTED THE EGD AND THEN ADDRESSED MY CONCERNS ALSO SHE MADE SURE THE REST OF THE TEAM WAS AWARE OF MY PROBLEMS BEFORE THEY PUT ME UNDER. THEN SHE WAS VERY CONFERTING WHEN SHE CAME TO TALK TO ME AFTERWARDS. tHE NURSE THAT STARTED MY iv WAS GOOD ALSO, SHE GOT THE IV IN WITH ONLY A LITTLE TROBLE WHERE MY VEINS ARE HARD TO GET.

May 19, 2015

Highly intelligent, empathetic physician.

May 02, 2015

Dr. Peterson is wonderful.

February 28, 2015

Dr. Peterson explained various options for me. She let me choose what I thought was best.

February 09, 2015

I am extremely happy with Dr. Peterson. Her concern is genuine, her knowledge is impressive and her explanation of every issue I had was great. I am thankful to have her as my EoE doctor.

December 12, 2014

Dr. P is a compassionate and knowledgeable expert in IBD. I'm so lucky to have her as my physician. over the years she is one of the few who consistently thinks ahead, gets things right, and genuinely cares for me. A++

October 08, 2014

Superb physician

October 03, 2014

Love Dr. Peterson!!!

August 27, 2014

Probably the most impressive physician we've had. My daughter loved her and felt very comfortable with her.

May 19, 2014

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.

April 30, 2014

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.
