Just found out Dr. Penny has been treating my child for over 2 years without my consent on the direction of my abusive x husband and her personal client !!. This is extremely unprofessional and illegal!! Unbelievable you ask?! Me too!!! She never took the time to find the other parent and make sure when she prescribed glasses that both parents agree. Why would she think there is only one parent??? Didn't she even wonder where the mother was? Then she even went further to write a threatening letter on my x-behalf to me and the Optometrist I had give a second opinion. Stating she was the most experienced and that the glasses are considered for safety glasses while at play! Perhaps she should see the cut my son had on his eye after playing with these glass glasses on, not plastic like safety glasses are! She is extremely unprofessional and old school after 35 years of service. This woman should not be allowed to force her opinions parents. Both parents should decide what's best for the child not her solely. I even had a second opinion from another well respected optometrist saying my child did not require glasses. Why she felt the need to threaten myself and the other doctors professional opinion is very concerning. Could it be because she made a bias decision based on knowing my x's family for 35 years? So unprofessional and old school. I cant believe this lady is allowed to practice. Way up charged for the glasses my son got without my consult too. Just adds insult to injury. WOW!! REALLY??
Dr. Penny diagnosed my macular degeneration and with a simple pill with lutein it has reversed. I believe in her and trust her implicitly. However, their eyewear line is much too expensive. In February 2012 I had my 2 year visit. That was perfect with the doctor. When I met with the eyewear staff I asked for a copy of my prescription but felt uncomfortable. It is March, 2014, and I did not receive a call from the office for my next visit. I have,always been called in the past. My only reason to go to urban optic is for Dr. Penny otherwise I would not go back.
i have been with doc penny since i was in grade 5 im now 30 and still with her she is an awesome doc i now take my childern there as well only thing i do not like about her office is that they do no direct bill to my plan and cant afford to pay cash
Dr. Penny is hands down the best eye doctor that I have ever seen. I once moved away and went to another doctor. My contacts and eye site always seemed off. I went back a number of times and never seemed to get it sorted out. Moved back to Calgary and after one appointment my contacts and eye site were much improved!
Dr. Penny found and treated my son's eye problem which was severe and undetected by another optometrist. As a teacher, I have recommended her to several students for vision therapy and they have benefited from her expertise.
I have been seeing Dr Penny for over 10 years. My situation is somewhat unique which has been misdiagnosed several times over the years. Dr Penny was able to understand and work with me immediately and has continued to offer new and innovative approaches. If you are looking for a doctor that has the ability to work with patients with unusual sight issues, Dr Penny is a great choice.
Dr Penny is great. This clinic is however becoming overly concerned with selling product. Once I told them I wanted a trial contact their interest in serving me dropped. In fact the phone call that was promised for that afternoon or the next day never came. It is sad that the professionalism of Dr Penny is compromised by the sales group.
I have been to see Dr Penny a few times after being recommended by a friend. I found she was very professional. I did feel some pressure from staff to purchase that day, but declined as I couldn't decide or afford a pair at the time. I've never had a problem with their office and continue to return. I did call once on the way to an appointment where I turned around due to bad roads (from out of town) and they cancelled no problem and told me to stay safe.
