The staff are friendly and helpful answering all of our questions in a straightforward manner. Dr Penabad answered our questions and gave us reference points on diabetes to follow up on as well as spending a great deal of time on getting to know me during my exam. Dr Penabad is easy to talk to and anticipates many of the questions we had. I highly recommend Dr Penabad .

I moved to Florida and upon review of the preferred providers on my insurance chose Dr Penabad. I could not have made a better choice. I am insulin dependent type II. My diabetes was out of control. Dr Penabad took all the necessary steps to adjust my meds to correct the imbalances.. I moved out of the area and now live two counties away from his offices but still make the trip to continue receiving treatment from him. He and his staff are wonderful and always responsive to my needs,

For 15 years Dr. Penabad has been seeing me for my thyroid problem. He explains things well, never rushes and is friendly and kind. Although I'd had goiters for many years, he was the only doctor who took it seriously and helped me. After many years, he recommended thyroid removal and a surgeon. My thyroid is gone but he still sees me to regulate my medication. He recognized another medical issue and thanks to him I saw a cardiologist and avoided a stroke. I think he is THE BEST.

I've been seeing Dr. Penabad for about 13 years and he has become my favorite doctor. He has a friendly and personable manner and always takes time to answer questions and address my concerns. He relates to me and I feel he really cares.

In terms of care, clarity of instructions, I would highly recommend Dr. Penabad. He has been one of our family physicians for several years. Cannot rate "urgent appointments" as I have not needed that service. The wait time can vary as with any office, but is usually pretty reasonable. I would recommend the New Port Richey office over the Hudson office location only because parking can sometimes be problematic in Hudson.

Dr. Penabad is truly one of the nicest, caring, compassionate doctors I have ever met. He explains everything in a very understanding manner, he is gentle & kind. He and I share the same birthday, and he never forgets. My husband (also a patient ) and I feel so fortunate to have him as our endocrinologist.

Doctor Penabad, is one of the most thoughtful caring physicians. He makes me feel important and he is never rushed to go over things with me. I am feeling so much better now that my issues are close to normal. Doctor Penabad, stayed on task with me until there was a solution. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Felicia

He doesn't listen to his patients. He is pompous and arrogant. He does not see the whole patient. Does not believe that anything is related to the thyroid. All he wants is his money. Do NOT go here.

Dr. Penabad is very caring and knowledgeable. He took the time to answer my questions and was reassuring. Dr.Penabad was very gentle when he performed "fine needle aspirations". I would highly recommend him.

From my first encounter with Dr. Penabod, while hospitalized for a different ailment, I knew I was in good hands. Within minutes he had my sugar under control and I felt such relief. As I have continued treatment with him , I have found him to be kind and very compassionate at all times. Most importantly, he listens carefully to the difficulties you are going through and truly works with you to make changes. I feel confident that as I journey with this disease, Dr. Penabod is the best !

Dr. Penabad is one of the worst doctors I have ever seen. Do yourself a favor and find a better doctor. He is rude, arrogant and short tempered. He was late for my appointment and then he rushed through the visit. He has a terrible bedside manner. He was not interested in hearing how I felt or doing anything to help me feel better. He is not empathetic, he did not care about my concerns and was condescending. There are lots of better endocrinologists out there. Don't waste your time.

He was very thorough and really took the time for good care. He answered my many questions and asked if I had any questions as he went over things with me. I was diagnosed hyperthyroid from previous Endo. in another state. He agreed & do more testing which I had hoped for in the other state, but they only recommended surgery. I am so thankful for another option and further testing. He was an answer to my prayers. His staff is very friendly & thorough.

Dr. Penabad was awesome. I was a new patient an new to the community. Only lived in FL a month. He was very attentive and listened. I hate going to new DR's but was very comfortable at my visit. He has an awesome personality. I was totally comfortable with our game plan an look forward to seeing him again. Everyone in the office was friendly and very kind. Thanks for the great visit.

Stay away from this horrible doctor. He lies, his nurse gives false information, and he did a torturous procedure ( biopsies - 7) without benefit of anesthesia, while checking his watch every few minutes. It was the most painful experience I have ever had, but he wouldn't stop long enough to give me any local anesthesia. I guess he must have had a hot date or something! BEWARE of this so-called healer. He doesn't seem to mind inflicting excruciating pain.

Dr. Pentabad is my Aunt's Dr. who is dying of cancer and he refuses release her and he refuses to treat the cancer or anything concerning the cancer such as anything that will make her life more comfortable. He offered nothing but chemo and encouraged her not to take it. He will not tell the family or her what kind of cancer it is except that it is located in the lung. I know there are drugs out there that can at least prolong her life without the use of chemo now but he refuses to offer that.
