Specialties

Dr. Page B Pennell has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr. Pennell is a new doctor for my daughter, she turned 18 and had to leave her pediatric neurologist. She had been with her for 11 years and we were very hesistant to leave but Dr. Lafortune referred us to Dr. Pennell, She is very attentive to my daughter, kind, and easy for my daughter to talk to. When called on the weekend there was almost an immediate response., even though she wasn't on call. She was able to calm my daughters frustrations with her diagnosis of epilepsy and had great insight on how she was struggling being a teenager with this disease. She was able to referred her to many outside organizations. I would recommend Dr. Pennell and her staff to everyone.

She is one of the best Doctors I have met, she is both strong in her Academics and well as quotes examples from her research. She was so reassuring and detailed. She is even sending a follow up of my visit to a doctor I was visiting in India. She rocks!

She clearly knows her stuff. She doesn't rush you but listens and answers questions for as long as it takes. She goes the extra mile. She is truly the best and I am sad she is moving to Boston but wish her the very best.
