    Dr Pennell takes all the time in the world with his patients! He is an incredible diagnostician! Explains everything. Takes a thorough history and examination he is surely from the old school of spending time with his patients and using his head along with the examination and tests to come up with an accurate diagnosis instead of just using tests to justify surgery! My whole family respects this doctor and I highly recommend him!

    I have consulted Dr. Pennell a great many times over the last decade for orthopedic injuries to myself and immediate family. He has good bedside manner. He takes a thorough history, makes a thorough examination and then explains his findings & recommendations in simple understandable language. He is genuinely concerned with the health of his patients. He follows a conservative approach and normally doesn't recommend surgery unless clearly needed when conservative measures have failed.
