Patient Comments (2)
in El Dorado Hills , CA |
In addition to Dr. Penkala's excellent credentials is her thoughtful approach to patients. Dr. Penkala actively listens and treats me with respect. I always come away with a better understanding of what's going on with my heart health and feel confident about Dr. Penkala's guidance and direction.
Doctor did not listen to my concerns about high blood pressure, and high heart rate over pased 2 years. Dismissed me with anxiety disorder. Would not even let me tell her my blood preasure readings or heart rate readings off my blood pressure monitor to her. Said she has no concerns with my heart. Mt heart is normal. Hmmm wouldnt it be wise to go over blood pressure or heart rate readings with patient????? Doctor deserves zero stars.
