Dr. Penn's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Penn "Dr. Penn's Gastroenterology and Hepatology practice is in suite 102 of the medical office building of East Georgia Regional Medical Center. He's been practicing in Statesboro since 2012. Dr. Penn's undergraduate training was at Wake Forest University. He earned his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Dr. Penn's Internal Medicine residency was also at MUSC, and during that time influence by well-known advanced endoscopist, Dr. Robert Hawes, led him to his choice of subspecialty training. He completed his fellowship in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the University of Florida, where he worked closely with Drs. Peter Draganov and Christopher Forsmark. MUSC and UF were both ranked in the top 50 programs in the nation for Gastroenterology at the time. Dr. Penn is well recognized in his field and has published in several prominent journals. He has given presentations at the national level, and continues to give lectures on pancreatic disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and advanced endoscopic tools and techniques in the southern region."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Penn "The key to appropriate care is caring for patients, and a love for the science of medicine, which is continually growing and changing. Symptoms are clues to a diagnosis. "Normal" tests don't mean that a disease doesn't exist."

Dr. Penn Says:

Thank you for the positive feedback. If there is anything I would change about our practice it's the time that patients spend waiting in the lobby for their appointments. It is not uncommon for someone with an appointment at 2:00 pm to get to see me at 3:30 pm. There is a lot of unpredictability in this specialty and it is important that each patient has enough time to be fully assessed and...

Don't waste your time if you want to see a doctor. Apparently, he is never in the office, he spends all his time at the hospital.

I have a horrible family history of pancreatic cancer and Dr. Penn makes me feel more at ease knowing that he is actively looking for the cancer to catch it before it gets bad. Pancreatic cancer is a death sentence, but know he is on my side and looking to find it early gives me a chance that it might not be a death sentence. He is a good man that I am trusting with my life. Highly recommend him.

I had a recent bout of severe diverticulitis which resulted in a large abcess. I was getting ready for major surgery, Dr Penn consulted with his colleague at Jacksonville Mayo Clinic and Dr Penn decided to try a stent into the abcess. It saved me from having major surgery and possible a colostomy. I feel that he and his staff went above and beyond and I cannot say enough good about them. He is not only a great physician but a compassionate human being also. Thanks Dr Penn and Cindy!
