About Me

I chose medicine as a profession because I've always enjoyed the science part of medicine and always wanted to help people. Cardiac electrophysiology is a field where I can apply medical and surgical skills to diagnose and treat challenging, complicated conditions and watch my patients improve dramatically. It's very rewarding.

Everyone was very efficient. The check in was nearly immediate and so was the exam and EKG given by the nurse and Dr. Pederson.

I recommend Dr. Pederson. He treated me right and answered all my questions prior to an ablation procedure. He’s straight to the point and provides facts to assist you with your health choices. I trust him 100%

Dr. Pederson is arguably as good at what he does as anyone in this state. He did completely successful ablations both myself and my wife. But, Jennifer who I believe is his primary office assistant threatened me when I was just trying to get a refill on a prescription necessary for my continued heart health. I contacted Griselda Guzman in corporate to file a formal complaint. She was very understanding and apologetic. But, she failed to resolve a big issue & ignored any contact by me.

Ultimate professional! Knows his specialty, knows his patients and that’s a winning combination. Both my wife and I have been under his care for the past 8 years and trust him implicitly. He listens and genuinely cares about your specific cardio situation. None better.

I have used Dr. Pederson for the last 5+ years and have found him to be right on the leading edge of medical/ cardiac technology. I find him quiet by nature but completely thorough and straightforward as my physician. I know where I stand and what I need to work on to improve . Excellent staff to back him up. Outstanding cardiac team.

Dr Pederson is a highly trained and experienced Electrophysiologist who did a cryo ablation procedure on my heart in 2014 to eliminate Atrial Fib (AF) episodes that I was experiencing. The surgery was 100 % successful and I was able to get off all my meds and return to completely normal heartbeat again. In my book he is the best as talking with friends I was able to compare to other doctors and their success rates and found Dr Pederson far superior. He is a highly recommended professional

I have been a patient of Dr. Pederson since 2008 and trust him completely with my care. He kindly and attentively listens, advises, and then allows me to make informed decisions regarding my health care concerning A-Fib and the pacemaker. His nurse and staff are always friendly, helpful, and courteous. Wait time varies. He is worth the occasional wait, and I appreciate the fact that when I needed additional time, I got it. I understand other patients may require additional time as well.

Had to change Drs after 5 years (Insurance change). Dr. Pederson came highly recommended from a personal friend. On the initial visit, his staff gathered my health history in a very professional manner. The visit with Dr. Pederson was not rushed. He answered all questions that I had. I am very satisfied with having him as my pacemaker doctor.
