His passion for healing and his love of the outdoors and small-town life led him from the plains of Kansas and Nebraska to the rolling hills of East Tennessee. Dr. Peterson was known for his overwhelming compassion for his patients and their families. The scores of those whose lives he touched through medicine is the cornerstone of his life. No one who ever met him came away without an understanding of the deep love and dedication he brought to his medical practice. Healing the sick was his mission in life and he pursued it with vigor, fortitude and with an unerring sense of humor for which he is well known and for which he will be long remembered in the hearts and minds of all those who were blessed enough to meet, know and love him.
