Patient Comments (4)

The wait for Dr. Prendergast was over an hour and a half. He repeated himself multiple times and we had interruption after interruption as he talked to his student.. His staff were very apologetic and his nurse was helpful with pointing us in the direction of having multiple tests completed. ...more

I really like John Prendergast, he takes time with you, never rushes you out of the office. He also explains what is going on with your condition. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Prendergast and his nurse are very patient and thorough with your care and ensuring you understand your illness. On a recent admission, Dr. Prendergast took over two hours explaining my mother's illness to her and myself. His nurse, Mia helped getting our home ready to bring mom home.
