31/03/14 5 5 5 5 We switched to dr pengson after he quickly diagnosed my wife at a local hospital on a pro bono basis while we were waiting for our daughter to be discharged. He then arranged an array of tests which proved to be the true diagnosis for her without the use of expensive radiology tests. We have asked our previous MD the same symptoms and got referred to two other physicians only to end up in a brick wall. with intent listening and clarity in explaining the condition, Dr. Pengson was able to cure my wife. Now, even with long wait in the lobby, he is our TRUE MD who cares to the fullest. He even gave his personal cell to us which i heard he customarily does to all of his patients.

03/12/13 1 1 1 1 Dr. Pengson is the WORST doctor I have ever known. He left my father with a UTI untreated and undiagnosed for 5 days. Even when nurses ordered tests and confirmed he had an infection doctor Pengson still did not order medication, and my father had to be transferred to the hospital and be hospitalized two days later. On top of all this he sent us a bill for his services. What services? Maybe he takes care of his in office clients, but I would not let him take care of my worst enemy in a nursing facility!  See Responses
