Ratings for Dr. Ellen Anderson Penno
Staff was friendly & efficient. The tech was very patient with me as I am a very fidgety patient (don't like anything near my eyes) Doctor Penno is obviously very well-trained & knowledgeable, but I appreciate that she didn't talk down to me while explaining what was going on with my eyesight.
I was on time waited 2 hours no greeting or any appplogy , awful bedside manner total time with her under 5 minutes , lady who instilled drops in my eyes does not fit for this job , could not understood my medication and spilled drops on my face and said they bounced back
I am very happy with my experience at Dr. Penno's clinic. The technicians were very friendly and attentive and Dr. Penno has a genuine passion for her work and helping her patients. I felt I was in the best hands and would recommend her any day.
The pre-testing optometric assistants are quite rude. Shoving my elderly mother’s head against the machines without much thought to her actions. How unprofessional. The ophthalmologist is cold and quite short. It’s as if she cannot be bothered to spend more time than she feels necessary to address your concerns. Feels like a business, not medical care.
My optometrist was unable to diagnose a sudden and disturbing concern and referred me to Dr Penno. Her office saw me the same day. I think they understand and know eyes, and know a potential emergency. I highly recommend Dr Penno and her office staff.
Dr. Anderson Penno is a wonderful Ophthalmologist. She reminds me very much of the doctors at the Mayo Clinic. She has great staff. She is very knowledgeable. Dr. Anderson Penno and her staff are always helpful. The office is very efficient and wait times are minimal. I highly recommend her.
Dr.Penno is absolutely the most professional outfit in Calgary if you are considering any form of Laser Eye Surgery. I checked out several other doctors and by far felt the most confident going with her office. Two years later, I can say it was the right choice.
