Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

Dr. Pendergrass was great. She listened carefully and asked lots of questions. I felt very comfortable with her. She was very honest about her abilities and limitations in regards to advanced endometriosis surgery, which I really appreciated. She offered to connect me with other specialists, and also referred me to a naturopath. I traveled down from Portland to see her and felt that it was time well spent. I would highly recommend her.

This was my initial visit to this doctor. I was impressed by her professional manner and the way she interviewed me to address my concerns and questions. Her assistant made a very positive impression on me before I even met the doctor. I feel I have had exceptional treatment by all Legacy doctors, nurses, and technicians that I have sought care from over the past 7 years in clinics and in the Legacy Meridian hospital.

Dr. Pendergrass is the only gynecologist I will see because she knows my medical history and takes the time to discuss all options with me. She helps me find conservative options for treatment before moving on to more invasive methods. Her and her staff are respectful of me and always make sure I'm comfortable with the decisions made. They're careful with my care and don't take unnecessary risks, which is important to me. I recommend Dr. Pendergrass to everyone and they always thank me for helping them find such a caring, informative provider. Dr. Pendergrass's assistance increased my quality of life substantially and I'll always be thankful to her for that.

The last page of question is a little to much, why would Legacy need to know how many years of schooling I have completed when you already know my age and the whole asking if I'm Hispanic or not and listing White as an answer, Caucasian is a better term personally.

I recently had surgery with Dr Pendergrass and received several follow up calls from the office to check in and make sure everything was going as planned with recovery. I would highly recommend her to anyone else with endometriosis, her care was beyond expectations.
