Dr Joel Pengson is a good doctor I think ? How he runs his office is not good. He will have up to five patience waiting in an individual rooms. I believe he is in it for the money trying to stack patience and they are waiting an hour in a screening room. And I have already waited 10 to 20 minutes in the waiting area. Pill prescriber, I'll see you back so I can get your money again and will not refill your prescription till you do. He does not provide paperwork with my current weight temperature and other medical data that other doctors provide on office visits. I do leave with business card with date and time of next appointment. He is good on referrals, but Horrible, do not count on him for paperwork you may need for Manage a Senior’s Healthcare, social security, disability.

I've been with Dr. Pengson for almost four (4) years now and the medical attention given to me was excellent. He will always make you comfortable and see to it that the medical concern(s) that I have are addressed. His staff are also polite and courteous. Highly recommended.

I’ve been with Dr Pengson mid 2000s or when he joined Dr Deo Martinez on Heacock. When he moved to Fir I moved with him. I expect to remain with him till he retires (then I’ll see his son) or I expire. I had that personal touch when I encountered billing issue with other providers (thank you baby) and I’m always greeted with a smile, okay not always but never rude. Wait times not a real issue But it happen. They always fit me in if I’m ill so I’m sure that why with other folks.

Since he has moved into the new location and the office staff has been updated getting appointments and talking to the office staff is great. We have been "worked in" on a last minute basis also. If you have an appointment in the afternoon the wait is longer, but still ok.

He does have a great attitude but he isn't very knowledgeable and he doesn't listen. I told him repeatedly that I was having pain in my chest and difficulty breathing. My blood pressure was high and he gave me Clonidine instead of a blood pressure medication to control it. Two months later after a trip to the emergency room, I was diagnosed with blood clots in both lungs, thus the pain and difficulty breathing. Find a BOARD CERTIFIED physician!

If I could do ZERO stars, trust me...I would. I am only writing this review to warn people! **********DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR OR ANY DOCTOR ASSOCIATED WITH HIM...MY SISTER DIED IN HIS CARE!*********** He is the most unprofessional doctor I have ever been in contact with. Run, don't walk to another doctor.

Was more concerned with the type of insurance I had to I assume decide how to treat. Medical=gives pills to mask problem rather than try to solve problem. And the office staff knows nothing of how a Drs office is run. Every last referral they submitted was denied because of their INCOMPETENCE! Never sent the required documentation with referrals so they could be properly approved. I spent countless hours on phone with them and the insurance carrier to correct their mistakes. Unacceptable.
