M. Todd Pendell, N.D.
It was serendipity that landed Dr. Pendell a position at Full Potential HRT clinic. Prior to this, he had spent many years as a primary care physician diligently treating patients from all walks of life who suffered from a myriad of conditions ranging from acute sore throats to chronic complicated health conditions. This practice allowed him to hone his skills in evaluating and treating the patient as a whole. He enjoyed doing primary care very much but he knew there was more to medicine than just treating disease. As fate would have it, two separate colleagues recommended that he would be a great fit at this really awesome HRT clinic. After interviewing at Full Potential, he immediately knew that this was the place for him. Since joining the team at Full Potential HRT clinic, Dr. Pendell has thrived in helping patients optimize their hormones, and has thoroughly enjoyed seeing such profound improvements in his patients’ well-being and quality of life.
Dr. Pendell was awarded his doctorate in naturopathic medicine degree from National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon. This has allowed him to live out his dream of helping others create and sustain improved health, balance, and vitality in their lives. One colleague with whom Dr. Pendell worked for several years had this to say about him:
“Dr. Pendell does not shy away from a challenge. I have been impressed with his level of medical judgement. He has a way of putting patients at ease and is a wonderful listener. He is honest, kind, genuine, and reliable.”
Formerly, Dr. Pendell was a middle school science teacher as well as Science Department Chair for eleven years in Phoenix, AZ. His interest in healing came naturally; his great-grandfather and four great-uncles were all acclaimed doctors and practiced medicine well into their 80’s, one of whom delivered the Anderson quintuplets here in Portland in 1973.
On his weekends, Dr. Pendell enjoys reading, playing guitar, hiking, mountain biking, drinking vanilla soy lattes, and exploring the wonders of Oregon with his beautiful family
