A long time patient/doctor relationship: excellent in every way!!


I would appreciate a better 'bedside manner' with Wake psychiatrists. Of all the medical disciplines, I feel that this is the one area where doctors should show the most compassion and sensitivity.


Any time I have needed Dr. Peter's, he has been right there for me. I lost a 17 year old son in 1987 to cancer, and he helped me to be prepared (as much as I could be) before and after my Son's death!


Great attention to detail with logical explanations of treatment plans, medications and follow-up care


Care provider is always very profession, understanding and caring.


I most like and appreciate the professionals taking my knowledge of myself and my condition into account when discussing it with me.


Dr Peters usually comes in at the end of the visit, to see my care has been satisfactory, and to address any questions I may have about the visit. I have complete confidence in these doctors, as I am assigned a new doctor with every year. I wish that didn't have to happen, but completely understand these doctors are moving through their own schooling and need to move on. Dr Peters does keep his door open, for any help I may need. So far, there has been no problems.


*Dr. Peters is a very excellent doctor.


I did recommend him to a FAM member but he's not accepting new patients now


Very good.
