Best decision made in 1989.

Came to see Dr. Penix about my back problems. We tried physical therapy in 1988. Because it was work related and workers comp was involved, i had to get 2 other opinions from 2 other doctors. I was scared naturally but speaking to both of those 2 doctors and how highly they spoke of Dr. Penix made me feel better. I was still scared but felt much better about the operation. That was finally done in January, 1989. The morning after the operation, i went into a room to take a shower because I felt so much better. Except for pain from my stitches, I was walking straight and painless. I came out of the shower room and Dr. Penix was waiting at the side of the door for me to come out. This was about 6:00am. It has been 27 years since the operation and I am pain free. He is the best doctor. I was and still am grateful to Dr. Penix for his excellent care of me. Thank you
