Dr. Pennell truly saved my life. He is an excellent vascular surgeon. He has been there with me every step of my surgery and recovery. I can feel my legs again! My surgery wasn’t an easy one and I felt confident he would help me. He gave me a new life! I’m out of my wheelchair and three days after my surgery I walked 1000 steps!

Pennell told my wife she would walk out in a few day a new woman. She died in recovery and had to be revived. They started out endoscopic and ended up gutting her like a fish. She has never walked again and she is going blind from complications from Pennells botched surgery. Run away from this doctor, and save your life. The only way he can do no harm is if you stay away from him.

Undiagnosed Thoracic outlet syndrome! Horrible office! Another cardiovascular surgeon immediately knew and confirmed complete compression in my artery! Time you retire!

1st patient & was told Dr would be 1hr late. 2 minutes later taken back to room, told to finish paperwork there. BP taken and it was high. It's never been high; 1st red flag should have gone off..Ignored. Dr. Pennell walks in explaining a patient of his needed his leg amputated but anestiologist was late so he came back to office -to see how many patients he could fly through. Tells me "insurance will need me to wear stockings for 3 month before any surgery". Takes cell call & leaves
