5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

54 Years Old - St. George, UT

One of my 14 yr. old saline implants ruptured so I went to my original PS in Colorado and found his fees had doubled. I have family in St. George so I searched there and found Dr. Peterson. It was worth the 8 hr drive. My experience with him was much better than my original doc. Not only was he a lot less expensive but also: He has a warm and helpful staff. He did a great job answering my...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Highly Recommended! - Utah, UT

I am so very happy with my procedure, I was very hesitant about getting the surgery until I met with Dr.Peterson. He took the time to answer all the many questions I had and he never made me feel rushed. He is very professional and very good at what he does. He called me personally the night I had surgery to make sure I was doing ok. I am thinking about getting more procedures done and I...

5 out of 5 stars Arm Lift

Pick Him! - Saint George, UT

I found Dr. Peterson while searching the internet. I have read a lot of stories of Plastic Surgeons who fail to follow through with their patients. This became a concern of mine while choosing a surgeon. When I had expressed that concern, Dr. Peterson had assured me that he would be available for me no matter what, or how long it took for me to achieve the best results possible, and I must say that he has been true to his word. He also had returned every e-mail I had written him either with a reply or a phone call. I have never felt rushed or put off. I addition to that, I never felt the gender gap, I normally try to seek out female physicians. I live in Las Vegas and traveled to St. George Utah where he does his surgeries. I found the ride going there a better experience than traveling through Las Vegas and our crazy roads with traffic. It's hard to explain, it was like a time for meditation before doing something so life changing. The surgical center is amazing mainly because of it's staff. While preparing me for surgery they were very thorough and attentive. After my surgery they did not leave my side. They took my pain seriously, and did not let me leave until it was manageable. I also have to say that Dr. Peterson was the first person I saw in the recovery room when I woke up. I am writing this review to express my gratitude for Dr. Peterson and his staff for their personage and professionalism.
