- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.
An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

Dr. Pennington's reputation as an ENT surgeon in Pensacola is excellent from other doctors and nurses at SHH (the ones who know him best). I was apprehensive that his bedside manner was not the best (because of other reviews I had read from long ago.) I should not have worried. He was great! Friendly, talkative, reassuring, etc. In other words, everything I want in a doctor!
After I talked to his nurse about my pain management concerns and being told not to worry about it Dr. Pennington cancelled my first surgery minutes before the surgery was supposed to start, so I was charged $550.00 from the surgery center cause they started IV and I took up the nurses time. Dr. Pennington said he would need to do my surgery @ a hospital so that a hospitalist could management my pain cause he doesn't prescribe morphine ( I currently take MSContin daily for pain ). 3 weeks later he does my surgery and tells my recovery nurse that a hospitalist need to manage my pain and she is told (from the hospitalist ) that it's the surgeons responsibility to manage pain of there patients. After 2 hrs of them both pointing the finger at the other one my nurse told me that they can admit me to the hospital but they won't be able to give me any pain medicine or I can go home and take the pain medicine that I had. I went home. I later found out that he didn't bother cleaning out an infection that I told him I had in my throat.
Very rude and short. Spends about 10 minutes in the room with you before making it obvious he doesn't want to be in there and is trying to hurry out, and that's after he reschedules your appointment 5 different times for two visits and takes 5+months to follow up after a ct scan, and then wants to act as though it's an insult to him to be asked questions about what's going on. Or atleast that's how it was with me. Very bad experience, and because of this I will not be letting him operate on me any time soon.
