What People Say About Dr. Dominick Paonessa, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Paonessa is a wonderful doctor. He takes his time diagnosing and trying to get to the issue you are having. Penny the receptionist on the other hand is very, very rude and is a bully and makes you feel like you're bothering her very important work by talking to her, when on the phone. She is very dismissive and should not be working as a receptionist. Maybe back office work would more appropriate for her. Or maybe she should just retire!!
