Dr Kendall is by far one of the most helpful and knowledgeable doctors I've seen in my life. She listened very attentively, answered all my questions, didn't talk down to me or dismiss my concerns. She readily recognized symptoms I hadn't even known to check for and gave referrals for treatment. I am trying to get my entire family to see her, as I believe her to be good at not only diagnosing rare conditions, but recognizing co-morbid conditions. It was super easy to get an appointment.

Dr. Kendall is truly an expert in h field and is very thorough. She takes time to review records, talk with families and patients and help guide them throughout whatever diagnosis they are facing. Scheduling has never been a problem, she has wonderful bedside manner and is really great with children.
