Ratings for Dr. Curtis C. Pedersen
I have seen him numerous times over a dozen years. I feel his attitude has drastically changed for the worse during the last three or four years. Questions seem to annoy him. One or two sentence answers with no real information. The last time I saw him I'm not certain the answer he gave me (one sentence) was correct. The last three or four visits were difficult. I left feeling insulted by his dismissive and, frankly, obnoxious attitude. The only reason I do not go elsewhere is that his staff is fantastic and most helpful. But even that may not be enough for me to stay there. I personally know one person who went to him once and did not like the way he treated her. She never saw him again. And I certainly understood why.
Doctor Curtis Pedersen is by far the finest doctor I have ever known or treated me. The Wound Care expertise he exhibits is simply outstanding and second to none. I feel extremely comfortable during my treatment at my appointments. Having someone touch ones feet can often cause discomfort. However, the Doctor and his staff practice a "bedside manner" that eases the feeling and atmosphere of such situations including less than attractive or smelly feet. In addition to being an excellent professional, Dr. Pedersen has always treated me as if I am a personal friend....even an equal. The office seems to run very smoothly and in a timely manner. This is definitely a reflection of his leadership qualities and organizational skills. I love the staff...especially Betty, Debbie, Cynthia, Justin, Tayler, Nathalie, Cammille, and Curtis. I am submitting this review to inform potential patients that if they require wound care or experience podiatry issues...Dr. Petersen is the man.
Went to Pederson on recommendation of Dr. My foot was broken and he never took another xray after my visit to general practitioner. He put me in a walking boot for 8 weeks, custom orthotics, and have had several cortisone shots as if they are some kind of miracle healer. Still, a year later, it is broken and swollen and he hasn't taken another xray or mri. Thousands of dollars and time later and I am no better off. Nuts to this guy, there is a real doctor that takes you serious and finds solutions at Alpine Orthopedics. Avoid Pederson if possible.
The appointment was on time and quick, which was nice. However, I felt like he rushed, and didn't do a good job explaining the surgery he was recommending, and what the recovery time would be like. He was kind of flippant about it. He was also not very comforting about future prospects of using my feet and being active after surgery. I'm still young, but after I went to him I felt like I'd never be able to be active again. I got a second opinion that was much more thorough and did a better job explaining my different options. The staff here was very friendly and prompt though.
I had sharko foot and diabetes. He said the only way to cure it was to have surgery. He knew going into the surgery I had mersa on my foot. He did nothing to make sure the infection did not go into my foot. A week after surgery on my foot I was infected and very sick. I underwent 6 months of treatment with antibiodics that killed my kidneys. After all that they had to amputate my foot and now I have dialysis 3 times a week. This doctor is a quack! All his patients get infected and have legs and feet amputated. Avoid him at all costs if you want to keep your limbs.
