Wow

Posted on May 28th, 2016

Not a very good connection with this Dr. Arrogant and hard headed as far as I'm concerned. Not for me but maybe for others. I heard he refused to sign a death certificate and made the deceased family wait 2 weeks and went on vacation and still left the death certificate unsigned, the dr that filled in for pengson while on his vacation is the dr that finally signed it.

I'll have admit at first glance I wasn't impressed, he had taken over my original primary Dr. office and I asked no response..Once, he came room I knew I had to be prepared....he moves fast...I can add his attention to me increased documenting as well letting me speak..I understand coming in and restructuring is quite a task..i have to give credit to the ability of speaking with him or rather texting...answers right away, we've experienced differences of opinions, however, the matter is more than not resolved..I see Dr. Pengso as a lecturer..very quickwitted, which at times is calming...the staff is the BOMB!!!!!..Baby, Isabelle, reception and all others greet my requests with smiles and determined nature, I.e.,,I've been a patient in that setting close to 10 years..I very much miss Dr Witana, and hopes he returns.I find...all in all new patient /dr.relationships are individual in nature..,. Doctors, please give credit when some of us "living" in these bodies and are to assist Dr. with health issues

Excellent MD

Posted on April 22nd, 2013

The only md who gives his private Fone to his patients which obviously includes me and therefore his accessibility even on weekends is the best compared to any doctor I have known. He saved my life and any hospital visit by answering his Fone several Sundays ago! He is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise de personalized medical community!

lung patient

Posted on April 12th, 2010

dr pengson has been a huge blessing to me given my ongoing problems. his accessibility after hours is unparalleled compared to the previous MD that i had. he is a superb diagnostician and is able to interface with other specialist whom he has referred me to without delay. i have yet to find someone like him for all his years of caring and listening.dr pengson-you are topnotch!
