Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Received a call from this office today about a referral that was made. When explaining that I was taking my child to a different doctor the man calling hung up on me after telling me that Dr. Kendall was "world renowned." Dr. Kendall may want to be sure she gets some "world renowned" people to make calls.

Absolute HORRENDOUS Paid over $600.00 for an office visit & the Dr never followed up with a conclusion after blood work was finished. Don't return calls or emails Highly unprfessional to leave a sick patient waiting without results. The husband is the secretary who doesn't behave professionally either

I flew across the country to see Dr. Kendall and it was worth every penny of expense. By the time most of doctor Kendall’s patients get to her they have been through a gauntlet of misdiagnosis and unsatisfactory medical appointments. I believe that Dr. Kendall’s expertise and authentic communication earn her a 5 star rating.

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.
