Dr. Brad L. Penenberg's Ratings
Every time I have met with Dr. Penenberg it has been a fabulously positive experience. Everything has been great since I woke up in recovery, no pain and a fast, pain free recovery with a lot of support from his office!

Dr Penenberg is friendly, professional, extremely knowledgable and the ONLY doctor to have a hip replacement by. He's so good that his waiting room is always full. But when it was my turn to talk to him...he focused on me. Looked me in the eyes and was made me feel very comfortable. He is special, not many doctors have his ability. He is very positive and he smiles at you and you know he's going to take good care of you. I had no pain at all. I was walking 5 hours after my total hip replacement with a walker. The next day with a cane and I went home. He is simply the best.

I told Dr P I didn't care if I ever saw him again, as long as he did my surgery.He smiled. He has on staff Dr Bolling who will do post-ops, injections,etc. Early on I opted for this, and have been very happy..Unhappy patients, because DrPenninberg DOES run late, were offered to see Dr Bolling and always refused,LOUDLY....so the office does try to help. I would rather wait and be patient and have the BEST DR's...I also see Dr. Regan for spine (another gem). You have no idea how many surgeons are bad or average. Be happy and do all you can to make your surgery work, being ungrateful does no good.. I had a few complications and I know I have an excellent Dr, I follow orders and I eat healthy, no smoking, etc...so it is no ones fault..life happens and I am looking forward to having my other knee done soon. TRY Dr Bolling for post-op etc, his schedule is not as crowded, that will it easier on all....by the way I drive from San Diego for each visit.it's worth it

Dr Penenberg acts omnipotent, behaves like he is doing you a favor by operating on you. Staff appears uneducated and lacks compassion. Dr. Penenberg's bedside manner is the very worst I have every encountered. Exchange is terrible beyond belief. My advice; find another doctor!

put aside the fact that's he's so busy (read so good) so he keeps everyone waiting and I only saw hime twice,once when he made me wait an hour and a half for at 8am appointment and then the day of surgery when he came in for 30 seconds and put an x on my right hip, the result is fabulous. Out of the hospital in 24 hours,no crutches, canes or walker. danced at a wedding 2 weeks after the surgery (i was in good shape going into the surgery and that helped). Now its 7 weeks later and after rehab and doing my home excercises i can't tell I have a new hip. Also relatively little pain. minimomaly invasive surgery is the way to go and he has the technique. So he's popular and thus he's tough to see. Small price to pay

When calling for a post-op visit, my mother was advised that it "was a gift" that she was even getting an appointment.
