About PJ Pedersen, M.D.

“I was attracted to the intellectual challenges of GI disease such as inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease and liver disease. I love having the opportunity to perform endoscopic procedures and work collaboratively with other specialists to give patients the best possible care and results.

I love the preventive care opportunities in colon cancer screening – stopping cancer before it starts. So many GI diseases can be treated and cured, and I like using therapies that help people feel better and live better. I always try to respectfully, actively and collaboratively engage my patients in their own care.

I am warm and caring, inquisitive and curious – and highly motivated to deliver the best care. Because I empathize with my patients, I work as hard as I can to improve their health and their quality of life.

In his free time, Dr. Pedersen enjoys mountain biking, skiing, water-skiing and participating in public educational programs for the Crohn’s and Colitis Association of America."

I had a great visit with Dr. Pedersen. He was right on time. We discussed my health, he checked my vitals. He agreed to continue my prescription, and agreed he didn't need to see me for another year, unless something changes before then.

No one looks forward to a colonoscopy and I didn't have a doctor to do this prior so when I was put in touch with Dr Pederson's office working with him and his was wonderful. They put me at ease and it was a very straightforward and simple procedure I really appreciate the way they handled everything and it was a great experience considering no one wants to do a colonoscopy. I would highly recommend Dr. Pedersen and his team.
