      I stopped going to this practice for a year after being a patient for ten because my doctors kept switching at this practice and I was not a fan of how cold dr.penkala was. I was forced back to penkala after an emergency and no other obgyn in the area had same day availability... He stated he was not intersted in treating me because I had left for a year and grilled me on why I left. I was not treated for the emergency, I left the office crying.
