He called to check up on my mother AFTER she died. Him and his staff are useless. Completely ignored her when she was dying.

Dr. Pennacchio is a very down to earth physician. You don't have to count your words with him. You ask him a question and will answer it in a very kind, caring and professional mannerism. I love having him as my physician. Nancy Garabedian in Medford. 12/3/18
