He took excellent care of an extreme bloody nose in an emergency room years ago, I was scared and he had a very calming manner. I continued going to him for nose and ear problems and have been very pleased with his expertise

I only wish I could give Dr. Pedersen even MORE stars! He's amazing and wonderful, and this is coming from a 46 year-old female who's always been afraid and distrustful of male doctors for my entire life. I'm so, so grateful and happy to have found him, he's the best. :)
