Testimonials for Dr. Peterson
I had shoulder surgery. From preop to followup and physical therapy, the whole experience was unlike any other. Dr. Peterson was approachable and clear in the process. Ryan Klenner was outstanding in treatment and education. Jill in PT was helpful and focused on my recovery. I genuinely felt cared for by the nurses and staff. It is hard to say I loved my shoulder surgery, but I wouldn’t have recovered as well if it hadn’t been for the great care at CORE.
I have worked with Dr. Erik Peterson and Ryan Klenner for a few years now. I have had my fair share of ortho doctors in the past and have finally found one I can trust, not only Dr. Peterson but his team too. I recommend Dr. Peterson and Ryan to all my friends, family, and clients at work.
