CENTRAL SQUARE, N.Y. — Dr. Jill Peterson, DO, has joined the staff of Oswego Health’s PrimeCare office in Central Square.

Peterson, an experienced family practice physician, most recently provided care at both of Oswego Health’s urgent care locations in Fulton and Central Square. She was among the physicians who helped introduce urgent care to the area nine years ago, according to an Oswego Health news release.

“This new opportunity allows me to return to providing primary care services on a full-time basis. I missed that unique patient physician relationship as I enjoy establishing relationships with my patients as I follow their care,” Peterson said in the release.

Before providing urgent care, Peterson practiced as a family practice doctor in Alexandria Bay, not far from her hometown of Lowville. She also served as the medical director at the River Hospital Extended Care Facility, also located in Alexandria Bay.

Peterson earned her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed both her osteopathic internship and family practice residency at United Healthcare in Johnson City. While fulfilling her residency, she was the chief resident and received the community service award.

Peterson is certified by the American Board of Osteopathic Family Physicians and in family practice and osteopathic manipulative medicine.
