Testimonials from the patients of Dr. Robert Peterson

Testimonial for Procedure: Cosmetic Surgery

I would like to take this time to describe my experience with Dr. Peterson and his staff. First, I am extremely pleased with Dr. Peterson, his staff, and the outcome of all 3 of my procedures done at the Athena Clinic. When I first decided to undergo plastic surgery I interviewed several doctors on Oahu and, for the first time in my search I felt well taken care of and professionally looked at, was at the Athena Clinic.

His staff is very nice, ethical, as well as professional, and cared for my wants and needs in a very special way. My first procedure had a very deep impact on my body and the recovery was a hard process But the staff made sure that I was well taken care of and could go home, knowing they would care for me, even in the after office hours. During the time visiting the clinic, every single staff member was always very nice and polite to me and made me feel as if I did not have to worry about anything regarding the procedure.

Every one worked as a team – Jennifer at the reception was always on top of her work, and knew exactly what needed to still be done with regards to me, Tobey (one of the clinical nurses) always knew what was in my file and made sure that my medical needs are met and Dr. Sun and Dr. Lu gave me the best before and after treatment; finally, Dr. Peterson truly worked surgical magic on me. I am very grateful to each one of them and can only recommend the Athena Clinic to anyone looking for a great plastic surgeon with an outstanding team.

Testimonial for Procedure: Cosmetic Surgery

I cannot recommend Dr. Robert Peterson, and his excellent staff, more highly. After 2 c-sections and a hysterectomy, I am no stranger to abdominal sugeries. Yet, my experience with Dr. Peterson and team was absolutely the “best seen to date”. From the very first meeting, the professionalism and genuine care about my needs was prevalent. They listened to my concerns, asked pertinent questions, and Dr. Peterson was very candid about which procedures would best answer my needs. I needed to rebuild core abdominal muscle strength to help alleviate lower back deterioration. He knew exactly what to do! I went into surgery calm, clear about the procedure, and what to expect during recovery. Follow-up visits were equally concise and continued to reflect the team’s authentic compassion and concern for me and about us co-achieving the best possible results.

There’s a reason why Dr. Peterson was voted as “Best Doctor” in the cosmetic surgery field for 2009…and now I have personally experienced it! If you’re considering a cosmetic procedure, don’t hesitate. Put yourself in the capable, professional hands of Dr. Peterson and his incredible team.
