Before Your Visit

We work closely and openly with our patients to ensure realistic expectations and optimal results. We want to make the entire process as stress-free as possible for you.

If you feel you are ready to discuss a surgery or procedure, call our office.

For cosmetic procedures, please call 814.278.4677.

For spa procedures, please call 814.231.7878.

You can also email us at or fill out our online consultation request form. Our patient care manager will contact you, provide information, and schedule a time for your individual consultation with Dr. Peterson or Lashelle.

Surgery consultations cost $75, which is refundable against the cost of your surgery. At your one-hour consultation, Dr. Peterson will discuss your requests with you. She will talk about your expectations, realistic results, and risks of the procedure or surgery.

Your next appointment may be scheduled at this point if both you and the provider feel it is appropriate to proceed. Sometimes patients may be asked to come back for a second consultation prior to their procedure.

Many procedures are performed in the office. Surgeries are performed either at Mount Nittany Medical Center or the Mount Nittany Health Surgical Center. Patients will be informed about where to go prior to the appointment for their procedure.
