I owe my life and the health of my 3 children to Dr. Penny. He is the only doctor I've seen in the 18 years I've been diagnosed with bipolar that has consistently been effective at helping me be the healthiest I've ever been.
He is super knowledgeable about all psych meds and every single time my meds become less effective he has tweaked my meds so I bounce right back. Before finding him, I just assumed that I would never be healthy enough to make it through pregnancy--with Dr. Penny, I've had great mental health through 3 pregnancies.
I've been a patient for 8 years, and anytime I feel symptoms coming back, he sees me. The staff are there to make sure his office operates smoothly so he can do what he's there to do: help patients. If you are wasting their time missing appointments, you are not only wasting their time, but stealing time away from those of us who need to see him.
Dr. Penny has been instrumental in helping me with providing paperwork for my disability claim, school loans, etc. He even spoke with the ignorant pediatrician at Methodist when I had my first baby who insisted that I was not allowed to breastfeed due to my medication.
I highly recommend Dr. Penny & appreciate the hard work every person in his office does--they are all dedicated, and spend many, many hours helping people. They work with patients who have to pay out of pocket, and are always there to help when you have an emergency.
He also is generous with med samples so those without insurance can remain healthy.
He is the only doctor that has ever helped me stay consistenly healthy so that I can concentrate on what matters most--living my life instead of living with the ups & downs of a serious mental illness. I can be a great mom and wife instead of not being able to get out of bed for weeks.
Great doctor & great staff!
