  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

I don't think I have ever experienced a more thorough pediatric doctor in any speciality for any of my children and D. peters treats two of my children one who has been a very tricky case. I have been truly blessed that someone was watching town on me when this doctor was given to our family. It will truly be a sad day to see him go but I can't say I am leaving not knowing my daughter has now the proper diagnosis that any doctor can follow her properly. He is a very talented doctor and a genious at his profession.

Dr. Peters is the best Dr you have and if it wasn't for him we would have never stayed with Geisinger. He was the only one that LISTENED to us from the start about our daughter. When the rest of the Dr. Already had their minds made up about her and tried sending us home till he stepped in back in August. Thank you for this survey we wanted you to know how great his been to our family

Dr. John Peters is the best doctor I have ever come in contact with.
Dec 1, 2015
I can say, without reservation, that Dr. Peters is the very best doctor any member of my family has seen. He is friendly and kind to my child and always takes extra time to explain what he's doing. With me, he is thorough in his explanation of my child's condition and treatment plan. I always feel that he is genuinely concerned about my child's welfare. My child has had to have lab work done several times and I could not believe it when Dr. Peters personally called me to give me the results. I will absolutely recommend him to others.

Dr. Peters is a credit to his profession, no messing around right on top of my son's care.
Sep 14, 2015
One of the best providers I have seen - introduced himself, empathetic, explained everything in an easy to understand manner to both parties (child and adult), spent lots of time with us and did not make us feel rushed or that he was harried to get to the next patient. He said he read our chart the night before - sad to say that's the exception versus the norm, but hearing him say that made me more comfortable about the care he was going to provide.
Sep 2, 2015
he was very good at responding to email messages/questions.

Excellent, as always. My daughter loved s him!
June 10, 2015
We are so thankful that Dr. Peters is part of Geisinger. Dr. Peters always takes the time to fully listen to concerns, consider the concerns and develop a plan to address the concerns. Even when the diagnosis is not obvious, Dr. Peters continues to make the family feel their concerns are being heard and work towards finding an answer, even when other doctors within Geisinger have dismissed the test results. For Geisinger to be a truly outstanding hospital, they need more doctors like Dr. Peters.

Dr. Peters compassionate way he speaks and approaches my son (diagnosed with Autism) is so wonderful. He take his time, explains what he will do before he touches him for the examination and speaks in such a calm, soft tone to him. Mu son never gets upset when we visit him because of this calm approach.

Dr. Peters and his staff are some of the most kind and caring medical staff we have ever dealt with!
