What People Say About Dr. Brian Penton, MD
Reply
With as many health complications as my Mom has, most doctors/specialists are too overwhelmed to even know where to begin. In 2015, we almost lost her due to kidney failure and lack of proper treatment from other physicians. Thankfully, we were connected to Dr. Penton; and along with an amazing surgeon, Dr. Howard Hayashi, my Mom's life was spared! Still a dialysis patient under Dr. Penton's brilliant supervision, as well as the nurturing care of Amy Zachary, Nurse Practioner, we embrace 2017!
