About Pedersen Primary Care

Pedersen Primary Care is coordinated with Ryken Wellness Center to provide primary care and help you reach your “Healthiest Self” with your highest level of energy and mental clarity.

 

Our practice believes that “concierge care,” which is often advertised at a high price, should be the norm in health care and not an additional cost. We expect the same kind of care for our patients as we would like to treat our friends and family. As in our last practice in Scottsdale and Phoenix, we continue to provide the highest quality primary care possible.

We believe strongly in providing individualized/personalized care that is sadly lacking in the fast paced health care system today. Our family medical center takes a holistic but realistic view of medicine. Although medicine is not always necessary for health treatment, it can save lives and has its place in health care. We have seen medicine save lives and we have seen disastrous events with medical treatment. All treatment in health care, in our eyes, is individualized and should be a cooperative effort between the patient and their physician.

Those patients who are well and are looking to be healthier, more vibrant, have more energy, and increase their overall mood and well-being also are in need of help to achieve their goals and we have unique tools to help you with your personal “healthiest self.”

Caron Pedersen, FNP-C, DC, BSN, BS-PT

Caron Pedersen, FNP-C, DC, BSN, BS-PT

Dr. Caron Pedersen is a practicing Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP-C, APN). She has been in the practice of health care in many forms for over 25 years.

Caron graduated from Analy High School in Sebastopol, CA in 1984 where she played Basketball, Track, Softball as well as participating in band.

She acquired her 1st Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Nevada, Reno while on a Basketball Scholarship. She then practiced as a Chiropractor for over 15 years, both in the San Francisco/Bay Area and in Scottsdale, Arizona.

While in practice and training for marathons as a hobby, she acquired Valley Fever, which eventually affected her spine, and she underwent a severe health crisis, an autoimmune disorder, and back surgery. In this process she could no longer practice Chiropractic.

During her own healing process, she became fascinated with the study of chronic illness and began to study physiological biochemistry and how it is related to difficult diseases and disorders related to autoimmunity and neurological diseases as well as the processes of pain.

She also studied nutrition and dietary counseling while acquiring a Life Coaching Certification to help communicate with patients.

Following her recovery, she acquired her 2nd Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. Patients began to reach out with a variety of issues and in need of diagnosis and treatment. She realized, as in her personal experience, these patients did not know where to turn for answers. They were running from one place to another in an effort to seek information but were not empowered to make decisions about their situations. It became clear that she was in need of the ability to help in a more direct manner as a primary care provider and became an Advanced Primary Care Nurse.

Caron is a native of San Francisco, CA, and currently resides in Scottsdale, AZ with her husband Michael. He is a College Football Official, as well as a high school Basketball Official. Dr. Pedersen enjoys sports physiology, psychology and treatment as well as just loving to watch football. She also loves to hike, travel and participate in a variety of sports.
