I was really satisfied with my consultation with Dr. McClendon. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. What left me with a good impression of her is when she asked if I feel safe with my partner/husband. I'm a domestic violence awarenessadvocate and believe that that's a very important question to ask especially by healthcare professionals.

Everyone in the office was super kind and helpful. Dr. McClendon was polite, kind, and moved everything along as quickly as possible while keeping the appointment thorough. I was able to schedule the appointment online with zero problems,and recieved confirmation that the appointment was scheduled the next day. The wait time was minimal, ~10 or 15 minutes. My appointment was at 1, and I was completely out of the office by 1:43.

Doctor McClendon was great! Appointment was quick, easy and totally professional. The only think I could think of that could be improved is the wait time. I had a 8:30 appointment and was not seen until about 9:15 or so.

I was pleased with how quickly I was seen, and with Dr. McClendon's manner and knowledge, but it has been over a month and I have heard nothing from them regarding any results to standard tests. I have called and leftmessages, and still haven't heard back. I have never had such an experience, and it doesn't elicit much confidence in this office's competence to take care of me and my needs. Will keep trying to get my information.

She has been my doctor since I was about 12 years old. Which means I've been seeing her for over 10 years. I could not picture myself going to anyone else. Her locations are convenient for me between home and work which is great.

I was very happy with my visit and Dr. McClendon. I arrived for my appointment right on time, as I had a difficult time finding the office, and was helped immediately after filling at my paper work. Once taken to theroom, the doctor saw me right away. There was no down time or long waits which usually doctors have. Dr. McClendon was also professional, knowledgeable and kind. I plan on making her my primary ob-gyn.

Dr. McClendon is pleasant and professional. She always remembers me and is easy to talk to. She delivered my now 2-year old son via emergency C-section. What could have been a really bad experience was as painless as possible, and my recovery was quicker than I thought it would be.

Very quick - I sat in the waiting area less than 10 minutes once I finished the paperwork. Every single staff member that I had contact with was wonderful. Everyone was friendly, personable and professional and I felt at ease thewhole time. Their receptionist in particular stood out to me for both her warm personality and her efficiency.

Her office has great customer service! As a new patient, there wasn't too much paperwork to fill out and I did not have to wait long to be seen by Dr. McClendon (this includes being seen by the nurse first). Assoon as we started talking, one of Dr. McClendon's first question was if I had any questions or concerns I wanted addressed. After our discussion, she asked me again if I had any more concerns. I really thought that was very personable of her. I have yet to meet a Dr. who is willing to listen as much as she did.
