I an very nervous about surgery. After the initial visit, her personality put me at ease. Most surgeons and doctors make you feel uncomfortable, but Dr. Pence is more like a family member that you feel comfortable about being around. If I ever need another surgery, I hope she is the one in the O.R.!

Dr. Pence is AWESOME! Came highly recommended for major health issue - got me in FAST. After initial visit, gave options and considerations, then recommended a wonderful team to handle issue. Came back to her for minor procedures/visits related to larger issue because of comfort/confidence with her. Complete confidence in her and her abilities - very well thought of in medical community! Will use her for any surgery needs for myself and family in the future.
