Dr. Peterson was raised in Osage, Iowa. After completing her residency, she returned to her hometown to practice at Mitchell County Regional Health Center.

“I chose to pursue family medicine because I love the variety it provides. I take a special interest in diabetes care, prenatal care, pediatric care, women’s health care, and osteopathic manipulation and no other specialty provides such an opportunity with such a variety of ages and types of medicine. I also enjoy being able to provide compassionate and quality care to people of all ages in a family setting.”

“I practice medicine with a focus on listening to patients. Healthcare should be truly patient centered and that starts with listening to patient’s as they advocate for themselves. I strive to treat patients like I would want someone to treat my own family members.”
