About Dr. Daniel Peterson


Dr. Peterson graduated from Bucknell University and Penn State University School of Medicine. He completed his internship at Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown, New York, and his residency at St. Luke’s – Roosevelt Hospital Center in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

After completing his residency at St. Luke’s – Roosevelt, he remained there as teaching faculty and had a part-time private practice. He directed the resident curriculum in Evidence Based Medicine. He was the director for the institution’s participation in the Academic Chronic Care Collaborative, which aimed to improve the care of patients with chronic disease, in particular patients with diabetes and heart failure, at teaching institutions where doctors train. This is where Dr. Peterson developed his enjoyment and confidence in caring for patients with chronic diseases like diabetes.

Dr. Peterson is Board Certified in Internal Medicine. He enjoys spending time with his two children, riding his bike on the Wissahickon trails, and reading biography, though not necessarily at the same time.
