"I had my first visit with Dr. Pennington yesterday, and he was absolutely wonderful! He explained every question I had thoroughly, and provided me a lot to think about in terms of my diet. He's super down-to-earth and personable, and I can tell he really listened and was tuned in with the issues I'm experiencing. If you're looking for a gastroenterologist, Dr. Pennington is a sure winner! The office staff was just as great, as well! This practice is just all-around awesome!! :-)"

"Dr. Pennington always takes time during consults to get updated health concerns you may have. He doesn't try to whisk you in & out just to get procedure scheduled. He has performed colonoscopies for me & my husband & last time I had a polyp. His staff called me on Christmas Eve to tell me it was benign which gave me even more for which to be grateful that year. They are great all around!"

"After my mom passed away from cancer that originated in her G.I., I told my PCP I wanted a colonoscopy, and he referred me to Dr. Pennington. It was almost two months before he had an opening, and I can understand why he stays so busy. Aside from my PCP, Dr. Pennington is the other best doctor I have ever seen. During my appointment, I got a bit emotional talking about my mom- because he actually listened!! He was genuinely interested in what I had to stay and did not make me feel like he was in a hurry to get me out. We scheduled another appointment for me to have the procedure- I think mostly to assuage my fears because I’m pretty sure he thinks it isn’t completely necessary just yet, but he could tell I was panicking about it. So, I would definitely recommend him to anyone. He was so, so nice…plus he is easy on the eyes lol"
