About Ryan P. Peterson, MD

  • Dr. Peterson grew up in central Nebraska. As a relative newcomer to the Central Texas area, Dr. Peterson enjoys the food offerings and live music scene of Austin with his wife (also an ARC Pediatrician), reading, and college football (Nebraska fan, of course!).

I initially chose to pursue a career in medicine because of the intellectual challenge it posed, but I later realized that relationships formed through clinical experiences are the most rewarding part of being a physician. I strive to foster open and constructive communication with my patients, to provide individualized care and guidance, and to do this cheerfully, with the goal of helping a child become the healthiest and happiest version of him/herself. I am fortunate to work in pediatrics, and I take the responsibility of caring for your child seriously.
