Craig R. Peterson


About Dr. Peterson

“My goal is to provide patients with comprehensive, state-of-the-art heart care and deliver it in a way they understand. I will always take the time to explain what is happening and why and answer all questions. The care and compassion I give each patient is no less than that I would give to a member of my own family.”


Education and Training

“My education has been one of the foundations of my life. In an effort to provide my patients with the best possible care, I frequently draw on the information and resources I acquired during those early years. Some things never change.”

Continuing Education

“Yes, I am active in perfecting my craft, but I also know that some of the best continuing education comes from my patients in the classroom known as my office. I achieve this education through a process called ‘listening.’”
