Dr Pennington is a horrible excuse for a physician. She did not insure that I was properly anesthetised and when I tried to alert her, two nurses jumped on top of me to physically restrain me. Then the laparoscope pulled and gashed my larynx and esophagus. I ended up with severe throat damage. My voice is still.not the same. E very muscle in my body was so sore and I could not even whisper. She didnt believe me when I called her the next day. I went to my primary care dr who found me to h

The most arrogant doctor I have met. She saw my husband and recommended him back to his primary care dr without ANY blood work or tests being performed. His primary care dr was surprised and sent him immediately from his office to the hospital for a CT scan. He was then diagnosed with severe bout of diverticulitis. He has sent become severely anemic and was scheduled back with Dr. Pennington. She said she didn't know what he was there for! NEVER go to this doctor. EVER.

I wouldn't wish my worst enemy to become her patient. Every day I deal with damaged larynx, which left me unable to sing. I sang in church before I became her victim.

My wife is the patient. Dr. Pennington is a recognized expert and we are fortunate to have her in this region. Whether in the office, the OR, or acute hospital care, if you have Dr. Pennington on board, you are in masterful hands. I am acquainted with several Healthcare professionals including doctors and those peculiar surgeons and, unfailingly, they respect and admire Connie Pennington. I don't gush like this in many reviews, but I can't say enough about my appreciation for her. -CJF

The 1st meeting w/ Dr. Pennington, she seemed very knowledgeable & took her time answering my questions. I'm thankful to her for diagnosing my issue since previous Dr's were unable/unwilling. However, the surgery performed failed; which normally I wouldn't consider the Dr's fault, but based on other CRS's, videos & other women's experience w/ the same surgery, it was done incorrectly. The last apt she was very abrupt, dismissive, & nonchalant about it all. I could say more, not enough room here

Would NEVER recommend this woman to anyone. After coming in, begging for a colostomy, help, anything to be normal again while struggling with an obstetric fistula- I was told she couldn't do a colostomy on a person of my size, and as she exited her office, she looked down at my daughter who was a few months old and said, you did this to mommy! She is beyond insensitive, unprofessional, and should've referred me to a qualified surgeon instead of treating me in such an insensitive manner.
