Dr. Peterson recently treated my daughter for a nonunion ankle fracture. We were absolutely thrilled with the treatment she received! Dr. Peterson thoroughly explained her condition, our treatment options and the pros and cons of each. He listened to our concerns and answered all of our questions. We never felt rushed through an appointment. It was clear from our first visit that Dr. Peterson truly cares about his patients! I would highly recommend Dr. Peterson and Suburban Orthopedics!

Dr. Peterson not only has the best personality, so warm and kind, he is an excellent foot surgeon. I went to him with extreme difficult recovery from a surgery gone wrong by a podiatrist and was suffering walk and effecting my SI joints. He recommended simply non evasive produce outpatient and i felt immediate relief even given the stitches. He was very attentive and hand held me through the entire recovery and follow up. He went out of his way to get me approved for knee roller. Very good. (Source: Health Grades)


Feeling confident going into a surgery was certainly a plus! Dr. Peterson thoroughly explained all my options and I knew I was in good hands. I have never been so impressed with a doctor in all my 63 years. His caring disposition, promptness, and true desire to do the very best for me confirmed how passionate he is as a doctor and surgeon. Walking pain free is the best feeling ever! I am extremely thankful for the exemplary services I received by Dr. Peterson.


I am beyond grateful and lucky that the traumatic night I slipped on black ice and ended up breaking my ankle completely, Dr Kyle Peterson was on call at the hospital I was rushed to. Dr Peterson made me feel at ease since the very beginning. He explained exactly what and how the surgery to fix my ankle would go and he made sure I was comfortable before rolling me into the Operating Room. He has done a phenomenal job with reconstructing my ankle! Every check up after the surgery, Dr Peterson made me feel important, and he truly cared about my progress. I never felt as though I was just another patient, each check up felt more like I was seeing a good friend who happened to have done surgery on me. He didn’t just care about my ankle, but he genuinely wanted to make sure that all aspects of my life were not suffering. I am beyond grateful for Dr Peterson. I have recommended him to all of my friends and family, who have all also been very impressed with Dr Peterson. He is an amazing doctor, and a truly amazing person. Best doctor ever.


I am so happy that I decided to go to Dr. Peterson. At first I was afraid because I usually only go to doctors that I know. Right from the start Dr. Peterson showed awesome “bedside” manor. He talked to me as a person and not just another patient. After surgery Dr. Peterson and his staff have been there for every question and concern. Dr. Peterson has given me instructions every step of the way with no surprises.
Thank you Dr. Peterson from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done. You made a painful situation feel painless.
