Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

He’s a Ten Star Dr!
Dr. Pedersen is truly awesome. He’s done 2 colonoscopies on me. He is very thorough in explaining what he is going to do and what to expect. No issues afterwards, he is gentle and kind. His jokes are funny and he makes you feel comfortable. I recommend Dr. Pedersen.

He is thorough,thoughtful and has a great staff. Colonoscopies are no one’s favorite procedure but he and his staff helped make the best of an undesirable but necessary exam. I highly recommend him.
