Patient Comments (2)
in Dover, DE |
After meeting with Dr. Penny and everyone saying he was so great, I was very disgusted. To have a Dr. speak down to me laugh at me and his treatment of me was very unprofessional. I had seen other Drs and wanted to have a neurologist closer to home. The diagnosis from the the Drs was all the same RSD. Come to find out there is a specialist in his office that treats the disorder. He should have referred me to him instead of trying to treat me for a condition he does not understand.

I have had Dr. Penny, For 19 years or maybe a little bit over that he's a brilliant brilliant neurologist! So very very kind, and his head nurse Lisa B. I have known her since 1995 and she is the kindest sweetest most caring person and nurse you'll ever meet Thank you Rose Collins
