Patient

More problems now than at the time of fainting. He fixed the bones of my nose but ignored the severely deviated septum? The right nostril is almost completely closed up. Breathing for over 2 years has been a nightmare. How could he have ignored this? Everyone notices. I sound like I have a year round cold. People have recommended litigation. My septum is deformed and it was ignored.

Through my reconstruction Dr. Pennington has been supportive. I trust his decision making, He worked with my breast surgeon to make sure everything was done in a way to allow for my reconstruction. Excellent bedside care for both my husband and myself.

I trusted Dr. Pennington with my results since I first came to him when I was 18. When I turned 20, I finally decided to get my procedure done. He listened to all of my wants and needs, and made me feel very involved in my experience. He did a fantastic job and I would do it all over again!

Dr. Pennington is amazing. He listens carefully and explains everything very thoroughly. I had bilateral carpal tunnel release and THE NEXT day I had relief from the pain and numbness that had been bothering me for years. My only regret is that I didn't have it done sooner.

Patient

At a time when I was very nervous, he did his best to put me at ease. Not an issue with Dr. Pennington, but while I was waiting for surgery, a doctor pulled the curtain back and placed an x on my right knee. I didn't know what he was doing so I asked and he thought he was looking at a different patient-his patient who would later be in the bed cubicle beside mine.
