What People Say About Dr. Albert Pendleton, MD

Not impressed with Dr. Pendleton. I waited an hour for my child to be seen and looked at my watch when he walked in. When he left, he had consulted with us for a whopping 3 minutes. No joke. And this was our second visit like this. His bedside manners are lacking, and he just walked out of the room without saying a word...I didn't know he was done until I realized minutes later he wasn't coming back. Will not be coming back.

I have used Dr. Pendleton both times for my son's knee surgery. LCL, MCL and ACL full repairs/replacements. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I like that he is very conservative and always maps out the different options we could do with the likelihood of success for each one. Also, I will note that he is more engaging with the patient than with the parent. This approach was great with us because as a parent, I was all over the place with anxiety about the injury.

How can you help patients if you don't fully listen to their complaints? He over talks and interrupts worse than a 3 yr old. This man has no business being a doctor much less a children's "specialist". If the problem isn't obvious then your looked at as if your over reacting. The office is also horrible with responding to messages.

Dr. Pendleton is a very talented and caring physician. I would highly recommend him. He quickly diagnosed and treated my broken foot and ankle, and followed up with me to be sure I was comfortable and following instructions for physical therapy to regain full range of motion.

What a jerk! Absolutely no compassion and horrible bed side manner. His agenda does not include reassuring patients. Office staff extremely slow to respond.
