Philadelphia, PA |
A real unpleasant woman to work with. Very rude
in Windsor, VA |
I appreciate that Dr. Pennington conducts random drug testing. This tells me that she is not going to just hand out drugs.
in Virginia Beach, VA |
Since Jan 2016 has been my pain mgmt specialist. Wonderful personality,a person first, then the doctor title second. Light yrs ahead of my first PMS. It maybe be hectic in the office, but consider how many patients being treated. Always listens to my needs or next steps. Provide guidance. This is what I need from a doctor, who has become a friend and confidant. Her office is no worse than trying to get through the gate keepers at other doctors offices. But,her nurse does return calls. 5 stars..

Totally unorganized unable to handle amount of patients she has. Word of advice make sure your name is written on your sample for drug screening don't it leave your hand without your name. I am 47 and I've NEVER seen such incompetentcy at any Dr's practice. Please do yourself a favor and a lot of frustration find another dr. My average wait time was ALWAYS more than an hour sometimes almost 2. Too many patients not enough competent help. BE WARNED
Virginia Beach, VA |
Dr. Pennington is a good doctor but it is a nightmare to get anyone on the phone to try to schedule an appointment or to talk to anyone about your care that is the only downfall for this practice
in virginia beach, va |
I have to say that I've been to different pain mgmt Drs as I have a lot of chronic conditions I have to say that she is the first pain mgmt doctor that I have ran across that is even willing to halfway listen to what is going on with me and to try to get my pain under control. I've been in the medical field for over 22 yrs I have to say in my opinion she cares about her patients. I wish she would take more time with me as a patient to listen to my other issues and concerns about my pain.
in Hampton, VA |
Very rigid pain management. Not willing to take all factors into account when addressing chronic pain relief. Can not recommend.
in Virginia Beach, VA |
Awful. I despise this woman. Shes doesn't care about her patients. She doesn't let you finish a sentence and she walks out of the room when her patients get distraught. What kind of doctor high tails it out of the room when her patient is stressed and overwhelmed and starts to cry? She didn't take the time to have a conversation with me with out interrupting every word i said. She then sends in her nurse to deal with me who is just as cold as she is. What if I was suicidal? Double books too.
in Virginia Beac |
Very POOR, I am a RN and know the difference between good and ridiculous. NEVER return phone calls. Wait WEEKS to try and get an appointment, even when it is a medical emergency. Promise to help with severe spinal pain,cleared by my insurance and kept delaying the shots,requested by 3 of my other Dr. By a demand letter.VERY POOR Dr. I am also reporting her to the Professional Board of medicine in Richmond Virginia. Total grief and stress. If this is what you want..by all means go to her.
