Very good experience. Dr. Pennington was thorough and took the time to pray with me before surgery. I had a quick recovery and he took personal interest in me and my family. Highly recommend. My husband needs an appointment now and his staff has been very kind to tolerate my calling multiple times to move up his appointment in case of a cancellation.
