Met this amazing man when my son was admitted to the ICU! He took amazing care of my son as well as our family! He showed patience and compassion throughout the situation! He stayed after his shift with us until he knew we were understanding what was happening and he offered to come back if we needed him! He stood by my side when making touch decisions and he offered support! He would personally come to tell me test results and what was going on, he would answer our questions without seeming annoyed! We were given this angel at our greatest time of need! I/we will never be able to thank him enough for all that he provided! Thank you Dr you are one of a kind that’s for sure!

Dr. El Gendy is a healer in the best sense of that word. He literally saved my life on a simple pre-up visit for clearance for upcoming bariatric surgery 8 years ago. I had not been feeling well but had no idea I was so sick. Long story short, I went home with an oxygen tank, and a plan and a deep regard for this man of medicine. I no longer need oxygen but he still treats my asthma. His team is professional, kind, and thorough as is he, they listen and take time with all of their patients. It was indeed my lucky day when I simply requested a doctor in my town for my pre-op workup, kismet brought me to Dr. Ala El Gendy, whom I can also call my friend.

Dr El-Gendy has been my doctor even before I moved to Fl. Was travel from Savannah GA just to see him. I wont trade him for any other. Thx God he saved my life so many times, always caring and never missed a hospital visit either. I haven’t see a doctor so caring like him. His staff is caring, to them we are family not patients, we are not a number, we are people. Thx Dr. Gendy, Andre, Ashmed, Millie, Taylor and Yomaira, and the ones I cant remember their names. (Sry.) God bless You all. Nora G Lehigh Acres. 12/23/ 201

My 80 year old mother has been a patient with Dr. El-Gendy for many years after being diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis and COPD. Dr. El-Gendy has been terrific. He spends time with her, listens, is patient and caring. He has offered new treatments when available to keep her comfortable and keep her condition in control. His staff is kind, courteous and patient. They treat her like family.

The Doctor and his PA are both caring and understanding of problems and work hard to help in every way. They don't rush you in and out or treat you like an insurance card number. We can get in to see them or at least have them return calls promptly at any time. It is obvious this is a calling for them and not just a job to make money. I highly recommend them.
