Anthony Peterson, MD, FAAD

Philosophy of Care

I enjoy beginning each patient encounter with a smile and a handshake. I believe in treating the patient and their family members as I would want my family to be treated; with respect and empathy. I am committed to learning and understanding my patient’s needs, then working with them to achieve their healthy skin goals. I bring a love of science and a sincere desire to educate and help my patients into every office visit.
