Great doctor, terrific surgeon. Supports patient autonomy by allowing his patients the right to make decisions about their medical care without trying to influence their decision. If your looking for a doctor that listens and provides practical solutions without making you a test monkey in the process.....he is your guy!!! Would use him again EVERY time, hands down!

Dr. Pendarvis performed emergency surgery on me on 11/29/2017. In February, 2019, I saw him again as another incisional hernia had appeared above my belly button. He has done two surgeries on me. He is very thorough and explains what he is going to do. He has great bedside manners; you know he cares about you and does what he can to keep you comfortable. My wife and I know he is an excellent surgeon from our experiences with him.

He performed a parathyroidectomy on me ( 66 year old male) and previous biopsy. Dr. Pendarvis made sure that l was not in pain before,during or after when I woke up.I had a great outcome. We prayed GOD would lead us to the right doctor and l really believe He did.

I had my thyroid removed on Wednesday November 22, 2017 and was so impressed with the every aspect of the surgery. My scar is barely visible and the doctor and office staff were very helpful, informative, and pleasant. The doctor also listened to my questions and concerns and spent time explaining everything to me.

I was in serious need of immediate corrective surgery for a severe hernia condition. Dr. Pendarvis adjusted his surgical schedule to get me in in less than a week. He made the time for me and I cannot say enough about his professional consideration, effort and care. The procedure went off without a problem and thanks to him, I was back teaching my college students in a matter of days. He is an outstanding surgeon, physician and human being. I would recommend him to anyone and will.

Dr. Pendarvis is the kind of physician that makes all other doctors look better. He is a true asset to the medical field. He is exceptionally nice and welcoming. He shows genuine concern for my well-being and listened to my issues. He was candid, supportive, and helpful in a way that I have not encountered from the seven different doctors I have dealt with the past year. I would have no problem endorsing Dr. Pendarvis if you are seeking surgery within his specialization.

D. Pendarvis is a very confident and caring person. He performed gall bladder surgery on me and did everything he said he would do in making me comfortable during this time. I would recommend him to anyone.
