Dr Pennington and team were great - everyone was friendly and caring. Juan made me feel welcome from the moment of approaching reception and Rachel was knowledgeable and thorough in the work prior to meeting with Dr Pennington. And the advice from Dr Pennington - against surgery at this time on my left knee and explaining why an issue with my right knee was now clear - gave me a go-forward plan that I understood and made me very comfortable with the direction being taken.

I saw Dr. Pennington for an AC joint injury. He took so much time with me and answered all my questions. He was personable and informative. I felt very comfortable and confident in his diagnosis and plan for my shoulder. I would highly recommend him and will go to him for any future orthopedic needs I may have.

Dr Pennington took a lot of time with me and ended up revising my previous shoulder surgery. My range of motion has improved significantly. He’s awesome.

I saw Dr Pennington over the course of about 8 months for adhesive capsulitis. This included surgery. He’s fantastic - treats you like you matter and doesn’t rush. I took my son to him for a knee problem as well and he loves him.

I had a great experience with Dr. Pennington. My wife and I both treat with him and find him to be personable and professional. He is thorough. He’s operated on us both and we are very happy with the results.

Continued: we want to be fair to the doctor, he probably has no idea about what happens up front. My husband is facing a very serious surgery, Reverse Shoulder Replacement, we want the absolute best surgeon to perform this surgery! Shenanigans from the front office is something we don’t need. We’re consulting with three top surgeons to do the surgery. We thought Dr. Pennington was one of the best, according to his credentials. Very strange treatment by his staff yesterday. We left.

We visited Dr Pennington on advice of some acquaintances. The visit was well worth the time. Dr Pennington's advice was well-thought, grounded with experience and sensitive to the situation. His experience and knowledge are beyond reapproach. We highly recommend Dr Pennington.

Dr P repaired both knees this year. He's so easy going and explains things well...just a friendly guy, on top of his great expertise. Special shout out to his PA, Whitney Greco. She'll spend all the necessary time answering questions, and the whole team really made me feel right at home. She walked me through my MRI and surgery results with me in detail. And always like hearing multiple options, some surgical but others not. Even desk staff addressed me by name upon walking in...very nice!

Dr. P is awesome. Got me fixed up. Have seen him for three separate issues and he always takes good care of me, had a great “bedside” manner and is also transparent with my treatment. I know exactly what was planned and what actually happened during my surgery. Plus the assistants, techs and other staff at ALL locations are great too. Kind, answer all my questions, are patient with me and I am made to feel comfortable and valued not just “another case”. Dr. P treats People not cases.
