Testimonials from patients of Dr. Pennington
Dr. Pennington is the best. I want him to never retire. And I could move out of the Bethesda area unless he moves his office to my next city. No matter whether it is "routine" preventive maintenance visits or emergency requests, Dr. Pennington is totally on top of things. His knowledge is amazing...his kindness is ever-present....he is a mystery-solver.... He treats me with… See more
I have been a patient of Dr. Pennington for the past 20 or 30 years. He was also the physician who support my Mother. Pennington and I have worked together and all my issues (all of which were minor) were handled by him and his staff with elegance and care. I certainly hope that he will not consider retiring until I am off the map (so to speak).
I've been a patient since I first saw you for an FAA medical exam in my 20s. I'm 60 now and can't thank you enough for all the interest and attention you've paid, and expert care you've provided my parents, Carla, and me ever since. We consider ourselves extraordinarily lucky to have crossed paths with you all those many years ago, and I hope we can be… See more
In 2012, I found a small lump under my left armpit. Was going to see him for pre colonoscopy screening and just mentioned it to him not thinking anything about it...With his insight, caring and compassion...I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer...I went thru chemo,bilmastectomies and radiation. I am 8 years in remission and living a wonderful life because of him...THANK YOU❤
My husband and I have been with Dr. Pennington for a number of years – even before he became MDVIP. He has been a caring and loving doctor. He goes above and beyond. Many of your patients have recommended you as a good doctor. But I am going one step further to recommended you as a great human being. Thank you Dr. P!
Lee Pennington is promptly available for unexpected needs and has figured out some ailments that I believe many doctors would have missed. This has resulted in quicker recovery for my wife and me and in some cases our ability to take foreign trips that we otherwise would have needed to cancel. He looks at the big picture and helps to coordinate with other doctors. We'd be lost without… See more
Dr. Pennington is great!!
Besides the regular and yearly physicals, the best thing is that when you're not feeling right ( in the past 6 months I've had norovirus and a sinus infection). You can call the office and get an appointment and a prescription that same day - and never wait. Thanks for everything doc!!
