I feel blessed to have Dr. Pennachio as my internist. He is so thorough and works on a "problem" such as high blood pressure until it is solved. I enjoy my visits and conversations with him immensely. I always feel that he wants the best for me. When I moved to Providence I continued to see him rather than changing to a new physician.
