He's wonderful......What stinks are some of the office staff, medical assistants and referrals take forever! Refills so so. They seem to overbook and sometimes it's standing room only! As far as Dr. Pennington, you would be hard pressed to find one better! Explains, Listens and No Rush, Treats!

All the reviews I read were absolutely true dr. Pennington is a excellent excellent doctor but it's staff needs to go back and get some training to be able to deal with patients because their patients are very short

I have been a patient of Dr. Pennington's for 24 years. He is a patient, calm, caring physician who takes the time to listen to me and answer all my many questions. Sometimes, I may wait a little longer, but I know that's only because he is giving that same care and attention to his other patients. I highly recommend him!

I've been a patient of Dr Pennington since I was a child. He is the most caring doctor I have ever met, and truly cares about each of his patients. He takes the time to get to know you, will ask about your family, and makes sure you are being taken care of. My children used to hate going to the doctor, but now that I have switched them to Dr Pennington's office, they get excited whenever they find out its an appointment day. If you aren't being seen by this wonderful man, you are missing out!

MY UNCLE was treated for a year by this doctor for allergies. chest X-Ray was done 1 year later and that is when this doctor finally discovered a LARGE MASS on my UNCLES left lung. IT IS STAGE 3 LUNG CANCER. What this doctor should have done for my Uncle is to take a chest ex-Ray at the beginning and then diagnosis him correctly. This doctor also treated another family member of mine and misdiagnosed her too. And she is no longer with us. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR TO NO ONE.

My mother went to Dr Pennington due to blood pressure issues. He is one of the kindest, most compassionate doctors I have ever met.
