i have been very fortunate to have Dr. Lee Pennington as my physician for the past 40 years. Through all my health and surgical problems, he has kept me healthy and fit, recommending excellent specialists when necessary and following through during my recuperation.

from William in MD February 12, 2014 for Lee R. Pennington, MD

Shortly after joining MDVIP I was struck with what had been a recurring and unresoved problem. Dr. Pennington spent nearly a full day with me, running tests, until he had the answer. He arranged for the necessary surgery, personally visited the hospitlal, and followed the situation to a satisfactory conclussion. My previous physicians had not been able to diagnose the problem

Dr. Pennington is a marvelous physician. Aside for being a very compassionate
and a very cultured person, as a doctor he is knowledgeable, medically up-to-date, very thorough and very organized. The best part is, he is always available when I need him for consultation, calls back promptly, and readily asks to see and examine me at my request or at his own suggestion.
