My visit was at the Retina Associates of Cleveland in Beachwood Ohio. My retina had detached and the retina Association got me in to see dr. Pendergast approximately a year ago. Dr. Pendergast is a amazing retinol specialist along with his staff especially Leslie. Dr. Pendergast and Leslie are a wonderful team. I am so happy and thankful that I have found them and especially that my eyesight is normal. Thank God for these wonderful people.

Dr. Pendergast has performed two surgeries for me, a torn retina and the removal of an epiretinal membrane. If outstanding results from a gifted surgeon are what you want, then Dr. Pendergast is the surgeon you want. It could be said that he may not have the best bedside manner, but I prefer to have the best possible surgeon who truly cares for me and delivers results above my expectations versus someone to hold my hand and comfort me.

I owe Dr. Scott Pendergast my vision today. Other Dr.'s told me I was going blind. Not Dr. Pendergast. He surgically removed a membrane form my left eye so my vision was restored. He also has my wet AMD under control. Today, I no longer wear glasses and my vision is very close to normal. I would never let anyone else touch my eyes. He is the best in his field. There are no words to praise him as high as would like. I see him every 4 months so I know he is keeping an eye on my wet AMD.

My brother has Macular Degeneration both eyes- sees Dr P yearly. Very thorough exam-after treatment vision stable 4 yrs. I am RN 36 yrs-dealing with 100's of doctors - I would highly recommend him-- top in his field. One negative which isn't that important--demeanor/affect very drab-- just wants to get down to business- man of few words. I sit quietly in chair while he examines my bro....he has never acknowledged my presence once- not even hello

For vitrectomy surgery I was all prepped for surgery then waited a half hour for him to arrive. I never saw him before or after the surgery only talking with his PA regarding how the surgery went with my husband. Following surgery there were 3 complications which caused major misery. I was bounced from one to another doctor on 6 follow-up appointments. I never felt like he was listening or cared about what I was going through. I wonder if his hastiness caused some complications for me.

I had 2 eye surgeries, which were traumatic for me. Dr. Pendergast, with his soft spoken voice, and confident demeanor put me at ease. Although his office is usually quite busy, he took the time to answer any questions I might have had (no matter how silly or trivial). I never felt rushed out of the office. I would recommend Dr. Pendergast to anyone looking for an ophthalmologist.

1) I trust Dr. Pendergast completely. My condition is fairly rare (myopic degeneration). My vision challenges continue to be "what they are" but I know Dr. Pendergast to be smart and professional and straighforward. Again, I TRUST him. He has saved my eyesight more than once. 2) His staff are the most kind and patient people. In a very busy atmosphere, they treat me like a person they like (means a lot) and I hear how they do the same with EVERYONE else.
