in Catawba, SC |
Love Dr. Pederson!!! He was recommended to do my "clear margins" surgery after a lump that was removed was found to be sarcoma. He did a WONDERFUL job maintaining the look of my thigh as closely to normal as possible. My scar healed beautifully. Very knowledgeable about sarcoma and the treatment. Looking forward to my six month post-op checkup tomorrow. Can't say enough about the fact that I trust his education completely with this scary diagnosis.

Lied about cancelling surgery and trying to contact me for a week just so he could blame another doctor for the mix up. Was not notified until I arrived for my surgery at 5am that day.

Does not listen to symptoms concerns. Difficult to have a two way conversation, not friendly at all.

Dr. Pederson is very caring and personable. He took his time to thoroughly answer all of my questions. His diagnosis was accurate and my surgery went very well. I would highly recommend him.
