Dr. Peterson was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when she was just 11 years old, which was her first introduction to medicine. She wanted to be a doctor from that moment on so that she could help others as her doctors had helped her. Dr. Peterson is a great listener who educates her patients to do the work needed to become their healthiest, best self.

A graduate of the University of Iowa, Dr. Peterson completed her internship program and residency with the Broadlawns Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa. Her hobbies include a variety of outdoor physical activities like hiking, biking, running and camping, but she also takes time to knit, play piano and read.

Dr. Petersen was the most professional and helpful doctor I've ever met. She made this visit a breeze and I look forward to making future appointments with this clinic and doctor. I cannot thank you enough for this visit. She was able to ease my concerns and sent me on my way feeling relieved. Not to mention, your facility was so efficient and quick! thanks again!!!

Dr Susan Petersen was very thorough with my exam, medical history, medications, and my questions got answered. Her staff was awesome as well. From the very friendly nurse who took my vitals and medication history, to the front desk lady who was very helpful getting My Chart downloaded on my phone. Very helpful, friendly staff.

Just within the past year, I was fortunate to obtain Dr. Petersen as my primary care provider. I am very pleased with my healthcare services she provides.

Dr. Susan Petersen is such a wonderful health care provider. I can't say enough nice things about her. She is patient, listens carefully, explains very well and remembers so many details about me. I gave her a hug after my visit. She's the best!

Dr. Petersen has been my physician for approx. 20 years. She ALWAYS has treated me with kindness and professionalism. She is the best doctor I have ever had (and I've had a lot (of doctors) due to my Lyme Disease). She is great!

was a little late like her a lot

I went on My Chart with a question relative to my health and to see if I could get an appointment. My Dr. responded within 4 hours offering me an appointment for either that afternoon and the next day. I chose the next day and was very happy with my appointment, my Dr., and the response I got to my problem.

Oct 12, 2017

Always enjoy seeing this provider and the people that work with her. I am always treated with respect and kindness. I ALWAYS receive answers the same day and often (when I use MYCHART) I receive answers with in an hour or two.

Oct 10, 2017

I use my chart to communicate with my provider and team, so phone questions do not represent how often or how I communicate with my doc.

Oct 6, 2017

I've always had great care and reception at Broadwater Clinic with everyone. I also find the communication with My Chart to be very helpful.

I know I will always be treated with respect & loving care.

Whatever there doing is doing great. Everyone in that office makes an uncomfortable situation very tolerable. I am lucky to have Doctor Petersen for my doctor.

My visit went very well.

Sep 11, 2017

I never have trouble visiting w/my several specialists or my regular doctor. I sure appreciate this. My husband is nearly always with me as I do not drive due to seizures.

Sep 11, 2017

I am trying to get a referral to a neurologist which I did by Dr. Petersen, but they are so sparse & _____ in Billings that I may need to go elsewhere (Mayo) - Which I would rather not.

Sep 7, 2017

Compassionate & caring.

Have seen Dr. Petersen since she came to Billings. I would not want anyone else to be my healthcare provider.

Dr Peterson is outstanding. She is very thorough, caring and genuinely kind. I couldn't ask for a more excellent doctor!

Aug 16, 2017

I love Dr Petersen! She understands me and I understand her without her talking down to me. she seems very concerned about my health concern, and is able to answer all my questions (if I can just remember to ask them).

Jul 19, 2017

I am so fortunate to have Dr. Petersen. She is so caring and will see any problem I have to the end. I am very comfortable with her, and always feel that she always has enough time for me I do not need callbacks unless there is a real problem as I do my checking lab results on My Chart.

Jul 19, 2017

Dr. Petersen is a wonderful physician. Every time I see her she makes me feel like I am her only patient. I have and will continue to recommend her services to my family and friends

They need more lab & x-ray people. This is the last questionnaire I will fill out for this provided if I was unhappy I would change dr.'s.

Jul 6, 2017

The office was clean, friendly and prompt.

I can't imagine a better health care provider even exists. I feel lucky and blessed to have who I have. You could never find anything negative in any visit if you tried.

Jul 3, 2017

Everyone in the facility was friendly and courteous, and all my questions were answered satisfactorily. Also, I NEVER felt like I was being rushed.

Jun 28, 2017

I no longer get my lab work done at this st Vincent's clinic as my insurance does not pay. I use another lab provider.

Jun 21, 2017

Dr. Peterson always listens and asks follow up questions.She is straightforward, very honest and upfront and never makes you feel like a number.She works very hard to act on all pertinent information and her follow up on any changes is excellent. I have reccomended her to my friends and will continue to.
