Ralph G. Peterson, P.A.-C.



After 25 years as a Physician Assistant, I’m still driven by the desire to serve patients—and I’m excited to be a part of the growing field of neurosurgery. The best thing about working with Dr. Keiper is that I get to see patients recover their lives— whether through state-of-the-art procedures or nonsurgical treatments.

I’m a native Oregonian with an undergraduate degree from the University of Oregon. I completed my graduate studies at Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, North Carolina.
A Great 3 YearsNext month will mark 3 years since you did my back surgery.  It’s been a great 3 years.  Three ski seasons, miles and miles of biking, hiking and brisk walks (otherwise known as jogging)!  Three active, happy, quality years with my wife and kids that I wouldn’t have had if it weren’t for you.  I have referred many friends, clients and acquaintances to KeiperSpine and they have all come back with much greater quality of life, as well as renewed hope, than when they started their journey.
