Patient Comments (3)
in Oakwood, GA |
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.
in Norcross, GA |
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.
in Eastanollee, GA |
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.
