Review of Dr. Pennanen

- in Washington, DC |

Dr. P was thorough, compassionate, efficient and perfectly clear as we progressed through the exams and procedures. She offered me options with clear consequences for each. Most impressive was the opportunity to take advantage of many tests before any surgery. When the time came, the procedure was done at the physicians’ surgical suite, comfortable and efficient. Lori expedited appointments with other specialists. My surgical scar is better than I could have imagined. All very positive.

Review of Dr. O'Leary


Dr. O'Leary is a brilliant surgeon who treats her patients with compassion, warmth, and caring. She always has time to explain any procedures, offer surgical options, answer all your questions, and ease any fears you or any of your family members may have. My mom and I are both so lucky to have found her; she is a true jewel.

Review of Dr. Pennanen

- in MD |

I highly recommend Dr. Pennanen and her entire office including Lori. The office is caring and efficient. Dr. Pennanen and Lori both spend the time needed to walk you through your diagnosis, options and next steps. I felt incredibly well cared for, very confident in the surgery Dr. Pennanen performed, and appreciate all of my continued follow up. I never feel like I am being rushed, always walk out of my appointment with my questions answered, and confident I chose the right doctor for me.

Review of Dr. Pennanen


I would give a zero if I could. Thank goodness the Reconstructive Surgeon could put my sister back together after Pennanen butchered her. No skill.

Review of Dr. Zorc


Dr. Zorc and his whole staff are absolutely outstanding. He is knowledgeable, responsible thorough, and will leave no stones unturned until you are healed. I came to him after an unsuccessful Pilonidal Cystectomy surgery and he immediately understood what real problem was, did a new surgery and here I am, totally cured. His staff became a second family to me. They made me feel I was their only patient with their dedication . They love their job and they really care about their patients.

Review of Dr. Pennanen

- in Rockville, MD |

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Pennanen and her excellent, caring staff. From the moment her staff took my call, I knew I was in great hands (literally and professionally). Every one put me at ease, from sending me the forms so I could fill them out in the comfort of my home, to getting me settled into the exam room, telling me what was going to happen, explaining the needed surgery, the care during the surgery and the followup visits. Dr. Pennanen is an outstanding surgeon.

Review of Dr. Pennanen

- in Germantown, MD |

From the time of our first consultation for mom's breast cancer to the successful surgery, Dr. Pennanen, Lori and rest of their staff were consistently stellar in their work while providing top notch care. Not only were they thorough, and seamlessly efficient but also compassionate and kind. It was so evident that they truly cared about their patients and it was not about business for them. We never doubted that our mom was in best hands possible and we feel truly blessed to have found them!!!

Excellent care. Professional and warm staff. In a time when women feel emotional any way, it is very comforting to know you are in the best care and the staff actually cares about you well being. Kudos to Dr. Pennanen and all her staff.

A truly terrific experience during my recent outpatient hernia surgery! Dr. Zorc and his staff could not have been more helpful and informative. I could not recommend his practice more highly!
