Very friendly doctor and staff! Very thorough with patients! Awesome with kids!!! (He did my 1 year old daughters tubes and I had to bring my other 3 kids with me to doctor appointment) The whole experience from office visits to getting her tubes at Southern Surgical Hospital was great!

Dr Pena is very thorough and his staff is great. I love that he doesn't overbook his appointments so you don't sit in the waiting room. I've never waited more than 10 min.
