I have been going to Dr. Penuel for IBS for over a year. He has been very upfront with his method of treatment, starting me off on a low "FOD" diet, eliminating foods with high sugar, gassy, and with gluten. In this time, I have actually learned how to control my problem with this diet and not with any medication. I needed to stay on track and he kept reinforcing his many years of experience and wisdom that ended with me losing 9 pounds during last year. I am thrilled with this outcome!

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Penuel right from the beginning. He truly listens, explains procedures clearly and is respectful of the patient. Great "bedside" manner.

Dr Penuel was one of the most impressive physicians I have ever met. I met him after being admitted from the ER and he sat down, asked me questions, listened to my situation and then gave me his assessment based on his vast experience and knowledge. And then he took extra time to reassure me & my husband to alleviate our fears of what might be. Both before & after my procedure, he was equally caring & impressive! Made my experience the best it could have been. Thankful for Dr Penuel.
