Daniel L. Peterson, MD

Daniel L. Peterson, MD, is an internist in Incline Village, Nevada and recognized medical expert on ME / CFS. Dr. Peterson has devoted more than 25 years of his clinical career to diagnosing and caring for patients with ME / CFS and related neuroimmune disorders, as well as collaborating with researchers to better understand the illness. Dr. Peterson’s experience as both a clinician and a research collaborator provide a unique perspective on ME / CFS for developing translational science.

Dr. Peterson’s interest in ME / CFS began in 1984 when Incline Village became the site of an unusual cluster of individuals presenting with unexplained flu-like symptoms that would not go away. Many of those individuals remained bedridden for extended periods of time. Dr. Peterson was perhaps the first to recognize these symptoms as something deserving of more attention.

Dr. Peterson received his MD from the University of Rochester School of Medicine, Rochester, NY, and completed his internship and residency at the University of Utah Medical Center.
