Ratings for Dr. Gary L. Penny
I have been a patient of Dr. Penny's for 16 years now. Prior to becoming a patient of his, I had tried 7 other doctors that never were successful with diagnosing and treating me for my illness. He was the doctor that opened the door to see the light at the end of a dark tunnel I had been in for years prior to being under his care. He is an excellent doctor in his field of work.
Seen Dr Penny now for 12 years. I'm his (or was) youngest and second longest patient ever for bipolar. He is amazing and I know he will help me through my thirties ( just turned 30 in July) and beyond. Down to earth, knowledgeable and just a great character. Debbie - his admin is tough as nails but when you need her on your side for insurance issues, you will be grateful for this one of a kind lady. Oh and I gave 4 stars for punctuality not due to them but me - I miss my appointments often and I wish they still did the pre appointment call but huh, my issue not theirs. Love this group.
Dr. Penny is so down to earth it is almost overwhelming. He is very intelligent but talks to you like a person and explains everything to you in laymen's terms. He saved my life. Very brilliant man. However his office manager is the spawn of Satan. If you don't mind the verbal abuse from Debbie, Dr. Penny is the best psychiatrist you will ever find.
Extremely knowledgeable. This is the doctor in San Antonio that other psychiatrists refer to when they can't help you. He is out of network for me, but worth every penny (no pun intended). He has helped me when no one else could. Friendly, genuinely concerned with his patient's welfare and will spend time with you during appointments -- doesn't hurry you along. Very thorough. Staff is nice, much better than the other offices I have been to!! With calls to the office, he calls back that day or comes to the phone when you call. Love this doctor, but not that he is out-of-network for my insurance (my problem).
