Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

Dr. Pendola was very friendly, compassionate, knowledgeable and upbeat in his approach to my care. He was not boastful or cocky. He brought ease to my apprehension when he explained the possibilities of the mass that has been located in the rectum section of my colon. I left his office with the feeling that I was going to receive the best comprehensive care for my situation. I highly recommend him!!!!

I had a very positive experience with the staff and Doctor Pendola. He listened to my concerns and asked several relevant follow up questions using easy to understand language (which is uncommon in my personal experience and frustrating). I would ABSOLUTELY recommend him for anyone with medical issues under his specialty and the nurses he works with. Very courteous and pleasant as well as thorough. Great medical care experience (wish they all were like this!)

I'm emotional and I'm afraid, however, I feel like I'm in intelligent and extremely qualified hands to manage my new diagnosis.
