Dr. Penta is one a kind he cares about his patients and also very gentle. Most importantly he always has a smile on his face which makes me comfortable when I visit his office. I am pregnant with my first child I freak out about the smallest things and Dr. Penta he has not once said anything about it and kindly answered all of my questions and made sure I walked out of his office without any worries or upset.

Absolutely the worst period. I wouldn't even recommend this doctor for my worst enemies. Never once was he on time for an appointment, minimum 1:30-2 hour wait what's even the point of an appointment? Literally has no concern or care for his patient. Thank god we had our baby on the weekend and had the on call doctor. With His complete lack of care it's a surprise that his practice is even still going. Only reason we didn't switch is due to trying to late in the pregnancy. UTTER DISAPPOINTMENT!!

This is my first pregnancy and I had to move from California to Kentucky half way through my pregnancy. I was nervous I would not like Penta over my old doctor, but he is by far the greatest doctor I have ever had, and I would not go anywhere else as long as I am in Louisville. He is very kind and he explains everything and answers all your questions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone he is awesome.
