St. Luke’s Welcomes Josh Peterson, PA-C
St. Luke’s is pleased to welcome Duluthian Josh Peterson, PA-C, to its Orthopedics & Sports Medicine team.
Peterson earned his Master of Physician Assistant Studies at Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He also completed an Emergency Medicine Fellowship at Aurora Sinai Medical Center in Milwaukee. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in biology from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. He is board certified as a physician assistant by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.
Peterson decided medicine was the right path for him after a childhood surgical procedure changed his life. Since then, it has been his desire to provide others with the same charity and compassion he received.
As a physician assistant, Peterson aims to provide personalized care by building relationships. He believes every patient has their own set of circumstances and expectations when it comes to their care and lifestyle. He strives to help them understand their disease process and treatment options in order to achieve the outcome they desire.
Outside of work, Peterson loves spending time with his family, coaching hockey, hunting and fishing.
