Riley Petersen, PMHNP received his Bachelor of Science in nursing at Western Governors University and completed his Master of Nursing at the University of Eastern Kentucky. He specializes in both psychiatric mental health and behavioral health, and is board certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. In addition to counseling services, Riley can also prescribe psychiatric medications to his patients as needed.
Riley became interested in nursing while working for the Microsoft support team during the launch of Windows 2000. During that time, he realized that he wanted to seek out a job where he could work with and help people every day instead of sitting at a desk alone day after day. After spending 15 years working as a registered nurse in public health, emergency medicine, corrections, and psychiatry, Riley obtained his nurse practitioner license. He chose to specialize in psychiatry because he believes there is a lot he can do to help people with their mental health. He has a passion for conversing with people and enjoys carefully understanding the needs of each patient in his care. Riley strives to listen without judgment to create a safe space for each of his patients to open up about their problems. His greatest achievement in his medical career has been seeing the individual improvements in each of his patient’s lives.
When he is not with his patients, Riley loves spending his time outside. He and his family love boating (especially at Lake Powell), camping, ATV riding, and hiking. He is also an amateur pit-master and loves to make pulled pork, brisket, and homemade wood-fired pizza.
A provider's patient satisfaction rating is determined by patient responses to questions from the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey, administered by NRC Health.
Patients today have more choices than ever, including where, how and from whom they get care. That's why Revere Health believes it's important to provide access to transparent information, empowering our patients to make knowledgable decisions about their healthcare.
CAHPS surveys are funded and overseen by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) within the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Patients receive the nine-question survey via email or phone call, and we publish provider ratings on Revere Health's website once he or she has at least 30 completed surveys.
