Dr.Petter is excellent! She is knowledgeable, caring, efficient and very patient. She answers questions completely. If you have any problems between appointments she encourages you to contact her. When your communication skills are compromised, it is very distressing. She has made every effort to make sure I understood what was going on prior to my implant, as did all the staff I dealt with in this process. It was really a miracle when I could really hear her voice after the surgery. The team is outstanding. She is guiding me through getting the most out of the procedure.
