I was a patient of Dr. Kendall's when I was a child, 26 years ago. He diagnosed me with Ulcerative colitis (which was correct); however, after that, whenever I would have a flare up and my parents would call his office, his advice was invariably 'Let's wait and see for a couple of days before we start any medication, it might just be something he ate'. Then, he would make a point of mentioning to my parents during office visits that 'Parents who don't take care of their children have them taken away'. While Dr. Kendall was my pediatric gastroenterologist, I had frequent flare ups, and was on prednisone, with doses as high as 60mg per day for weeks to months at a time. I was hospitalized twice for flare ups of my colitis (2 weeks the first time, 1 week the second time), due to extreme dehydration and blood loss. During one office visit, he performed an unscheduled flexible sigmoidoscopy, with no explanation to myself or my parents as to why. In the past 26 years of living with my disease, I have never been as sick, or had my care as mismanaged as I did with this doctor. I have dealt with multiple specialists in multiple medical fields, in 4 different states, and I can honestly say that he is the worst doctor I have ever had the displeasure of knowing. A well informed parent or guardian should check medical records in other states before considering allowing Dr. Ross Kendall to manage their child's care.

GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. This physician does not listen to informed parents. He is more interested in talking down to you until you do what you are told. Terrible and stressful experience, and now we still have to go find someone else to help our child get better.

Dr Kendall diagnosed my son when no one else could. After years of suffering, he is able to go to school and even play football. I was pleased to find a doctor in Knoxville with knowledge about complicated gastro problems. I would recommend him to anyone!
