A fantastic experience. Dr. Pennanen is gracious & kind, but also, of course, intelligent and knowledgeable. I actually enjoyed the procedure because both the physician and her team were so lovely. The office is exceptionally well-organized.

He’s a brilliant oncologist/hematologists, who does research and sees patients-an awesome combination. His research keeps him on the cutting edge of newest treatments. I’m stage IV metastatic kidney carcinoma- he’s keeping me going. I’m truly blessed!

Dr. Lustbader was the third ophthalmologist I have seen in one year. He was by far and away the most professional, informed, and patient doctor I saw this year. He immediately diagnosed my condition, performed the seamless surgery, and inspired trust and confidence.

Didn't take more than a minute to listen to listen to symptoms, was very dismissive. It's this mentality and practice of diagnosis from the patient medical form and the nurse's quick judgment that leaves patients dismissed with chronic conditions. Can't recommend.
