Elizabeth Peterson, MD, is a board certified pediatrician. She enjoys treating
her pediatric patients and watching them grow and develop from infants
to young adults. She believes in the importance of listening to her patients
and maintaining the support of their families.
Many of her patients are teenage girls. As they mature, she appreciates
being able to teach them about taking responsibility for their health.
Dr. Peterson has been practicing pediatric medicine in El Dorado County
since 1993, after earning her degree at UC Irvine Medical School and completing
her residency at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
She and her husband were both raised in small communities and wanted their
three children to have a similar experience, so they moved to El Dorado
County from Southern California.
