More problems now than at the time of fainting. He fixed the bones of my nose but ignored the severely deviated septum? The right nostril is almost completely closed up. Breathing for over 2 years has been a nightmare. How could he have ignored this? Everyone notices. I sound like I have a year round cold. People have recommended litigation. My septum is deformed and it was ignored.

Through my reconstruction Dr. Pennington has been supportive. I trust his decision making, He worked with my breast surgeon to make sure everything was done in a way to allow for my reconstruction. Excellent bedside care for both my husband and myself.
