I've been seeing Dr. Penstein for over 10 years. I cannot understand how anyone could give this doctor a negative review. She is simply the BEST -- smart, articulate, ALWAYS will take the time to explain pros and cons of any procedure -- both medically necessary and cosmetic. She is the real deal people.

After a long wait I entered an exam room where, after undressing, I was kept waiting in a freezing cold room for 90 minutes without anyone coming in to let me know what the problem was. When I finally got up to leave the office (after not having been seen), there was no one at the front desk to speak to. I never even received a call from the office to apologize for the horrible service. On the few occasions when I did see the doctor, I was not overly impressed. The staff is very unpolished too
