Dr. Penafiel is very professional and thorough.
in Glen Burnie, MD |
Dr. Penafiel and her staff are always pleasant and helpful. Appointments are well managed, and even thought office is a bit small it is always clean. I appreciate the small town personal care I receive there.
Severn, MD |
The crown prep went well and I tolerated the whole process well without becoming anxious. She allowed me to take a valium to help ease anxiety.
