Provider Reviews

He was very thorough and polite with my husband and me. He took my husband's kidney out and half of the other one because of cancer. Both times he explained everything to us and was very friendly and courteous. Would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Broughton has been outstanding the entire time he has treated me. I really appreciate that he doesn't pull any punches when giving you info. I would rather hear the straight facts not the sugar coated ones. I am well on the way to Kicking Cancer that to him.

Review for Dr. Penkava

Dr. Lott was both incredibly compassionate and thorough during a recently ER visit. No one wants to be in the ED in the middle of the night, especially with their child; he did a wonderful job caring for her and she agrees that Dr. Lott is kind and has a wonderful bedside manner.
