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 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.

I 'love' Dr. Pendergrass! She is young, smart, looks you in the eye, answers all your questions, has alternatives to issues if you question the first input, and has a wonderful sense of humor. And she has a great grip with that hand shake. :-)

Dr. Pendergrass was very thorough, knowledgeable and kind. I came to see her after 2 previous surgeries for excision of endometriosis, possible adenomyosis and IC. I was looking for confirmation of whether I had adenomyosis or not and what my next step should be because my issues have not been getting any better. She confirmed I did have adenomyosis, probably more endo. that needed to be addressed and other pelvic issues. After speaking with me at length, performing a physical exam and reviewing my medical records she gave me her opinion on what she could do for me to provide the best quality of life. I would highly recommend Dr. Pendergrass

She really is exceptional. She listens but is also intuitive and can ask the right questions to help a nervous patient remember all the things they wanted to discuss. She is a gifted people person with an incredible bed side manner. She has truly changed my life with her skills and she is empathetic which doesn't always come with very skilled doctors.
