Dr. Andrew Petersen received his undergraduate degree in microbiology from Brigham Young University. He graduated from medical school at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth, Texas and completed a dually accredited AMA/AOA residency in family medicine at Penn State affiliate program where he served as Chief Resident. Dr. Petersen began his career in rural towns in Kansas and Texas. After practicing a full scope of family medicine: providing office based care, making house calls, visiting his patients in the nursing home, caring for patients in the hospital, working in the local emergency room and delivering babies for nearly 10 years Dr. Petersen changed his practice to focus on the integrative care of chronically ill patients. During the first 10 years of his career he came to love caring for his patients through all stages of their lives, but he has seen that there is a disconnect between how allopathic medicine approaches disease, and what needs to be done for people to actually become and stay healthy. Since that time, Dr. Petersen began to specialize in those areas that are he felt were inadequately treated by traditional allopathic approaches, including hormonal imbalance, hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, metabolic disorders, weight loss, neurodegenerative diseases, addiction and pain medicine, and chronic infectious diseases such as Lyme disease. He is a fellow with the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. He has completed the A4M fellowship in stem cell therapy. And he serves on the program committee for ILADS. In addition to providing cutting-edge medical care, Dr. Petersen enjoys hiking, skiing, running in Spartan and Triathlon races, playing the guitar and singing. Dr. Petersen speaks fluent Spanish and especially enjoys traveling and spending time with his wife and 6 children.
