      Dr. Kendall says

      We work hard to earn positive comments but recognize that by being a leader in the field you can become a target for those with personal agendas. Unfortunately with advanced genetics you may not have a simple answer or a simple "fix". While working hard to arrive at Black and White for our patients, the science may leave us to deal with shades of grey. We recognize that we may need to provide information that the patient may not want or may not be prepared to accept. We are dedicated to the truth and that prevents us from providing a specific answer that a patient may be seeking or craving for whatever their personal reasons. We have helped so many over the decades but we cannot be all things to all people.

      She was the best, she understood my dilemma and she didn't dismiss my symptoms. She listened , examined me and explained everything. Now I have a better understanding of what happened to me.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Kendall's Care Philosophy

      We treat our patients they way we would want to be treated if the roles were reversed. Simple, but seems to be very powerful as our patient testimonials reflect.

      ×

      Dr. Kendall says...

      We are a strictly clinical practice completely independent from the politics of large institutions and have no laboratory affiliation to avoid conflicts of interest or financial incentives in the tests that may be ordered.

      We see adults as well as children.

      Super sub-specialist with a 25 career in Metabolic, Mitochondrial, and Inherited Disorders. Much of what is now standard of care for many disorders was first pioneered by Dr Kendall. She founded the very first clinical Mitochondrial Disease clinic in the US, sits on the Medical Advisory Board of a national foundation, is one of a handful of specialists chosen as a regional medical representative for another foundation, has written chapters on these disorders for medical texts, authored numerous research articles, is a guest lecturer at medical schools and nursing schools on these disorders, is a frequent guest speaker at international medical conferences, often acts as an expert witness in Federal Court cases, and has appeared on national Fox News to offer expert opinion. If interested or necessary, a more detailed list is available on our website.
