I recently had Dr. Pennington for saugousmous surgery on my forehead. I was highly impressed with his professionalism and bedside manners. I talked with him during my surgery and found his personality to be great as well. With all of my return visits etc. I found all of his technicians to be helful and professional. I will be seeing Dr. Pennington again if necessary as the type of cancer I have can return somewhere else as it is now in my system. Anyone not liking Dr. Pennington has issues.

Terrible bedside manner and attitude. This was reflected by all the staff who look miserable and did not want to be there. I will not be returning. Absurd waiting times!!
