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

I was visiting from out of town and needed an appointment ASAP and originally there was no appointments open within [date removed], but I got a call back and was able to be seen by Dr. Pendergrass who opened her schedule up and I've never been so pleased with my experience. Definitely will recommend to family here!!

Dr. Pendergrass is if not the best, then one of the best doctors I have ever come into contact with. She is smart as can be, takes her time (studied my case like no other doctor ever had and definitely caught an alarming issue that required quick attention), seems to actually care about patient overall health and well being, gets to the heart of the matter and is great with follow-up. I too work for Legacy Health and interact with a wide variety of doctors and patients (who talk without being asked about their doctor experiences - both good and bad). In my opinion, Dr. Pendergrass is the gold standard of docs. I feel very fortunate that I was referred to her for my health issue a couple years ago.

Dr. Pendergrass always cares of my health concern and explains with details. She is very helpful and knowledgeable in gynecologic. I would recommend Dr Pendergrass to all my friends, she is really the best obstetrician/gynecologist.
