Gives little information

Dr. Penoyar seems unable to give information about serious medical incidents to a patient. I was left with nothing, It was a wasted visit.

Dr. Penoyar does not listen.

I told him I had a certain diagnosed condition and he rapidly stated I did not have that. I have had this condition for ten to 15 years. Dr. Penoyar makes his mind up without the facts.

His License to practice medicine 'd be REVOKED.

He seems to be friendly but, he cares only about money, I complained to him about a pain above my tummy, he dismissed it as nothing, it turned out to be gallstones; he wanted me to start shooting Diabetes medicine when I am NOT a diabetic; he gave a medicine that made me cough ( I didn't know it was a side effect of this medicine), I brought it to Dr. Penoyar's attention MANY TIMES as I passed out due to this severe cough, he ignore it and I had a car accident, I could go on but I must say Dr. Penoyar is a BUTCHER. I do not recommend this wannabe DO.
