Yo soy paciente el doctor Penalver fui operada por el y es un doctor que tiene toda la paciencia para explicarte lo que te va hacer y aclararte todas tus dudas, eso le brinda al paciente seguridad de que todo va a salir bien , después de la cirugía te llama en varias ocasiones y te va a ver, eso también es bueno porque hay es donde se ve la preocupación del doctor por su paciente. Gracias doctor por ser de la manera que es. Gracias por tratarme a mi familia y a mi como si fuéramos la suya.

My daughter had surgery in Colorado to remove a tumor. It wasn't removed . My Dr. Tried. He couldn't and sent her to Jackson Memorial where Dr.Penalver successfully removed it, the size of a watermelon, thankfully benign. This was in 1986. I have meant to thank him again and again for doing what two other doctors were afraid to do. I have blessed him every day. Her name then was Lois Ressler. I am her mom, Mrs. Geller 4/19/18

I had a myomectomy to remove 8 fibroids with Dr. Penalver 4 weeks ago. He was absolutely amazing! His experience cannot me matched! He removed all fibroids in less than 1 hour. I was out of the hospital the following day. Medically. He is the absolutely best choice when it comes to a gynecological procedure. His bedside manners are fantastic. He’s caring, compassionate and He even gives you his personal phone number (and picks up when you call). I am so glad I chose this doctor for my procedure.

I had a Hysterectomy 3 years ago. I had ureter injury during surgery. The problem was not the injury, we are human, we made mistakes, but the way he treated me after that was real sad. When i let him know about my symptoms and went to his office, he actually advised me not to go to ER(he didn't want everybody to know what happened to me). Good drs are defined by the way they act when they make a mistake. he could be a good dr in overall but definitely, not a good person at all.

Dr Penalver exceeds my high expectations that I expect from a doctor. Dr Penalver takes the time to answer all questions you have (I had many!!) and he does it so pleasantly. His expertise, caring, skills, etc cannot be beat!! Being that I needed surgery, I am so thankful that I was able to use Dr Penalver. Everything went better than I could have hoped and recovery has been great because of Dr Penalver!! I cannot brag about Dr Penalver enough!

Terrible and insensitive to get anybody at his office or to obtain any lab results; a urine culture test was done on April 12 and they were suppose to call back with the results on Friday 15 . I had been trying to contact his office at 5000 University Drive since last Friday . His secretary never answer the phone; the voice mail is always full at any time . A line for test results was contacted, I was told a nurse or the Dr. Will call back today 04/15 nobody did. I don't recommend him.
