Dr. Pendergrast, you were such a Godsend for us – I feel our daughter is ever so much better off without all the chemicals running through her and shes much happier taking things she feels her body really needs. It’s allowed her to be much more involved in what goes into her body. (parent of a teen patient)
“Thank you again for the highly supportive, informative, and encouraging visit you provided yesterday. I don’t remember when I have felt as confident and happy about my ability to care for my child. You already have a fan club of people in my life who are glad to hear the relief in my voice!” (mother of a 1 year old patient)
“I’m 72 years old, and that’s the first time I really enjoyed a doctor visit!” (new patient, June 2008)
“I first went to see Dr. Pendergrast after a traumatic stay in the hospital where several different teams of doctors tried to increase my circulation so that I would not have a toe amputated… because of the onset of a Raynaud’s (Scleroderma) extreme reaction. The hospital was concerned that with such compromised circulation … that performing an amputation on a toe or toes could possibly lead to losing the foot. I was sent home with many medications including Warfarin in an attempt to get more circulation to the right foot. After a month, the situation had not worsened, but neither had it improved.
I was referred to Dr. Pendergrast and his method of hypnotherapy to increase blood circulation. My first session was most helpful in lowering my anxiety level but I was absolutely amazed that evening when I was applying medication to my toes that I could actually see an improvement. I had not been thinking of or expecting any results from an introductory visit. I had not even had the time to do a practice session at home as it was an afternoon appointment and this was early evening. I was tremendously heartened and practiced each day with my self hypnosis CD from Dr. Pendergrast and returned for two more visits, noting continuing improvement over the next weeks. The visiting nurse and the original attending doctor were amazed at the progress we had been unable to make before the hypnotherapy began.
I noted that along with the increased circulation, my (hypnotherapy) sessions … seemed to lessen my extreme anxiousness and my darker thoughts.
I see so much improvement since I began with Dr. Pendergrast. I have been able to taper down and off some of the medications and am hoping to remove two more so that I will be working with the minimum medication that is absolutely necessary. I have recovered my spirit, which I thought was barely a small spark on the verge of flickering out, and each day I feel stronger, calmer and in charge of helping my body to heal.” (clinical hypnosis patient, January 2010).
