All good. I did not need to call the provider's clinic regarding this visit as I had scheduled it 6 months In advance and had received both reminder/confirmation texts as well as request to fill in pre-appt information. I did wait until I arrived to complete the authorization to have my daughter allowed to have access to my medical and financial records, as this is a new request that I had not received from Legacy before. I did give that information and signed at the front desk.

My visit with Dr. Pendergrass was worth the wait for an appt! She answered all my questions without judgement, listened carefully, and offered options. She explained all the options and I fully understood the plan when I left. I so appreciated her care, and truly the entire team's care. I also noticed many messages of inclusivity posted throughout the clinic, and as a human who cares deeply about others, that was so awesome to see in your clinic.

I love Dr. Pendergrass she's amazing & so thorough I love her nurse Katrina so helpful with managing my endometriosis and pelvic pain.

  Apr 26, 2023
For some reason the OB/GYN's at Legacy push Gabapentin for pain and NEVER want to prescribe actual pain medication when it's necessary. This stigma has GOT to stop! It is doing actual harm to people. Including after surgery!! I have actually decided to have my upcoming and all future surgeries elsewhere because I'm terrified I will not be properly cared for, concerning pain, after surgery.

  Apr 14, 2023
Dr. Pendergrass was very thorough. She did not rush and took the time to fully explain the plan for care and the reasons for each part of the plan.
