    Hung up on several times by office manager, cursed at by her and completely disrespected by her. Found out she is doctor Pennington’s wife, so his patients must go through her abuse to try to talk to him.

    Dr. Pennington has the best attitude and understanding when it comes to his patients. He explains everything in detail and takes his time. He did my Cardiac Ablation and got my heart beat back in synk. Great Job. I would also like to recommend the Heart and Vascular center at Christiana Hospital. Great nurses with excellent care.
