in Sebring, Ohio |
Dr. Pendergast is very professional, friendly, and knows his profession. I would recommend him to anyone seeking Ophthalmology help.
in Chesterland, OH |
I have been going to DR. Scott Pendergast for 3-4 years and have found he and his staff are extremely competent and professional. I feel very good that my annual check ups are complete and gives me confidence my eyes are being monitored properly.
Warren, OH |
Dr. Pendergast is very knowledgeable and professional. Will recommend him to anyone in need of excellent eye care.
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
in Wooster, OH |
Dr. Pendergast has been treating my retinopathy for several years. He has been able to restore my eyesight to near normal function. He has brought me a long way.
Westlake, OH |
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.
in Delray Beach, FL |
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.
in Cortland, OH |
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.
Warren, OH |
I would highly recommend Dr. Pendergast. He performed surgery on my retinal tear about three years ago and have had no problems since. Very kind and friendly staff as well.
New York, NY |
Definitely I would recommend Dr Pendergast to anyone having retinal surgery. Very experienced and professional.
