Dr Pendergrass is absolutely amazing, and I will recommend her until the day she retires. Although her front office staff are less than amazing. I've been a patient for years, however had to spend entirely too much time running around gathering information for them and fighting for my medical records. They made it so hard for me that the entire process took 8 months just to get an appointment. Absolutely ridiculous. Legacy needs to update their policies especially with things being limited because of the pandemic. A little customer service goes a long way. I get that everyone is burnt out, but I'm just trying to get an appointment so I don't have to be in pain.

Reception was friendly and helpful, getting my post surgery visits set up. Dr. Pendergrass really nice, knowledgeable and helped me deal with a medical issue outside her specialty but impacting planned surgery.

I was made to feel comfortable right away. I arrived frustrated and late because of traffic but they were able to accommodate me because of another cancelation. It was a first time consultation but I quickly gained confidence in my doctor. I think we will work well together.
