Dr. Peterson has two wonderful children. His first, Blake, is an exercise physiology major at the U of U and will be finishing up his Chiropractic prerequisites before moving on to Chiropractic College. Needless to say, his father is so very proud and honored that his son will follow in his foot steps. His second, Anne-Marie, of course will always be his "little girl" and will always have that place in his heart. She is now in the nursing program at UVU and is looking forward to helping others too. Dr. Peterson is so proud that both of his children have chosen a path in healthcare that will be so rewarding for them both. Dr. Peterson's passions, besides his commitment to improving the health and well-being of his community, include golf, skiing, running, and biking along with other outdoor activities.

Dr. Bruce Koelliker
Dr. Bruce Koelliker was born in the sunny state of California. At a very young age his family moved to las Vegas, Nevada, which he calls home. With his mother being a nurse, Dr. Koellliker developed a desire early on to help people and knew he wanted to pursue an education in healthcare. While in high school, he excelled in athletics and participated in student government.
After his high school graduation in 1982, he attended Brigham Young University before leaving on a mission for the LDS Church. While serving in Aukland, New Zealand, he developed a love for the South Pacific and its rich culture. Upon retuning from his mission, he had the opportunity to attend BYU-Hawaii on an athletic scholarship and return to the pacific--a chance he just couldn't pass up.
While attending college, Dr. Koelliker received numerous awards including Academic All-American, Outstanding College Students of America, and Most Valuable Player for basketball. During this time, he was fortunate to work closely with the medical director at BYU-Hawaii throughout the school year which only served to further his desire to go into healthcare. Returning to Las Vegas on summer breaks, he worked with some physical therapists there which increased his desire to help people with particular focus in sports rehabilitation. Following graduation from BYU, Dr K found he wasn't yet ready to leave the Hawaiian sun, so he stayed and taught high school, coaching both volleyball and basketball.
Finally, with his young family in tow, Dr. Koelliker moved to southern California to attend chiropractic college. After graduating from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1995, they moved to Las Vegas where he has been practicing for the past 14 years. He recently moved to Salt Lake City and is excited to serve the people of the Salt Lake Valley.
