The absolute best hands down everything and more plus some that you could wish for in a Dr. I feel so very grateful for having met Dr Pena and could not be happier with his great compassion for his work. He is literally the main reason for which I get up in the morning.

Dr pena is a rare physician in that the shows true compassion and a sincere drive to help. I have seen many doctors in my life and find him to be what a dr should be in all fassetts. I highly recommend.
Santa Rosa, CA |
"Old school" family doctor, who is compassionate, kind and exceptionally competent and committed to patients well being rather than the "new health care" where insurer's control every decision. Dr. Pena takes time to listen and think, reasoning out issues taking the patient's background, desires and resources into consideration. He moves cautiously but meticulously towards the safest workup and treatment plan that works. If you have to wait, it's because he's taking time with other patients!
