Patient Comments (1)
in Braintree, MA |
I was gob smacked with getting a diagnosis of ovarian cancer in Oct. of 2014. A close friend has had experience with Dr. Penson re: her mother and she called him. Immediately I was brought to MGH at his request and I have never looked back. His manner and kindness combined with his expressing, in words I would understand, what my disease was and what steps needed to be taken from that point on. His side-kick in my journey was Dr. Rachel Clark, an amazing woman and surgeon. Loving Life x o
