I had laproscopic exploratory surgery and an appendectomy recently by Dr. Fendley. From the two consults all the way through surgery I have nothing but praise for Dr. Fendley and his office staff and nurses. A few days after surgery someone from Dr. Fendley's office called to check on me. Then, 10 days after my surgery, Dr. Fendley called me personally to see how I was doing. I don't think all doctors take time to do that, and I really appreciated it.

Dr. Fendley is a wonderful doctor and surgeon! I had sleeve and herina repair, 7-28-17. His team treated me with care even when I had terrible anxiety. And during my hospital stay I wasn't doing good the first night, he made sure I stayed an extra night until I was able to consume liquids,

Great Surgeon !! I was referred to Dr. Fendley by my GP. On my initial office visit I met first with his NP Eric then with Dr Fendley. They both listened to my problem and answered every question I had. Dr Fendley then explained what needed to be done. It was so nice to go to a Doctor that listens and explains everything to you. Everything was seamless from initial office visit to surgery.
