Robert Peterson

Dr. Peterson joined DoveLewis in 2020, leading the development of the Urgent Care service and then expanding to the ER and ICU after completion of an Emergency Critical Care internship. His focus on ER care and commitment to support nonprofit medicine made him a perfect fit for DoveLewis. He is currently a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (VECCS), and the Oregon and Portland VMA.

Throughout his education, Dr. Peterson has lived all across North America, but he loves the city and people of Portland most. Outside of medicine, he enjoys backpacking, automotive history, and traveling.
