    Dr Penuel was one of the most impressive physicians I have ever met. I met him after being admitted from the ER and he sat down, asked me questions, listened to my situation and then gave me his assessment based on his vast experience and knowledge. And then he took extra time to reassure me & my husband to alleviate our fears of what might be. Both before & after my procedure, he was equally caring & impressive! Made my experience the best it could have been. Thankful for Dr Penuel.

He listens with empathy and presents his recommendations with expertise and knowledge. His staff is very pleasant and cooperative. They show genuine interest and concern in you as a patient. I would definitely recommend Dr. Penuel to family and friends without hesitation.
