Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

This was my 2nd surgery at CC and everyone was wonderful both visits. When I found out I had to return for another surgery I was very comfortable going back because I knew I was in good hands.

Dr Pennington is a great surgeon. He makes me (the patient) feel comfortable. I will keep coming back to him for my needs. He really knows what he’s doing and makes me feel very confident in what I need and what to do with my body

First time seeing Dr. Pennington and I would definitely recommend. He was clear and concise on his diagnosis without using too much medical terminology so I could understand and lead a clear path to future options. We also had a nice conversation about the Kentucky Bourbon Trail during my appointment. It was nice for a doctor to spend a couple extra minutes to talk and get to know me without feeling super rushed through the appointment or like I was “just another patient” during the day.

Dr Pennington does fantastic work! I went in for a procedure and we discussed everything I was looking for, advised me on areas that were less treatable and why, and explained the entire process to me. Everything went exactly as described, and the results were amazing. Every single person I met and worked with on his staff were absolutely wonderful. I would absolutely go back and recommend to others!

I have only good things to say. I never had a problem with appointments and trusted his knowledge of carpal tunnel, understanding my symptoms and having me take a nerve test to back up his prognosis. He checked on me in surgery both before and after my surgery. I had clear cut directions as to how to care for my post surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone with similar problems. He is competent and kind.
