Ratings for Dr. Murray Penner
The ankle replacement I got with Dr. Penner is fantastic. He first rebuilt the lower end of my tibia and then did the ankle replacement. He was personable, very informative, and confidence-building. I had no concerns going into the operation, and have had no complaints since. He is always pleasant and willing to answer questions, never rushes you and devotes full atention to you. I was lucky to have him give me back mobility.
he operated on my left Ankle after 2 surgeries.this is 18 years ago I have to say the only best DR in BC Amazing Dr. will never forget how he saved my left Ankle.in 2017 my left ankle is much stronger than the right one. thank you dr and god bless. \
Dr. Penner has so far been well worth the long waiting list. Once i was made an actual patient things have seemed to move very quickly. After 2 surgeries (from a previous Surgeon) and 3 years of the continued annoyance of living with constant pain due to a shattered heel, he has actually given me hope that at one point i may be pain free. He has been more than accommodating with the prioritizing and scheduling of an out of town patient. He makes very good effort to make sure i feel like each visit has been progressive, informative and worth my while. While waiting on his list for surgeries he has also been great with helping me manage an handle my pain. The most impressive part about it to me is the fact that his efforts are in no way considered special treatment. He manages himself very well and genuinely seems to be able give time and attention to detail for all his patients.
Had a bone island in the centre of my calcaneous joint removed. I had refused general anesthetic, and opted for only a nerve block. Dr. penner and the foot and ankle staff were very hospitable and efficient. Not to mention the small talk while prepping in the surgery room alleviated a lot of stress and anxiety. Who knew hunting conversation could bring so many people together, and enlighten on new experiences. I still have yet to try kangaroo meet as was described by one of my nurses, but it is on my to do list :). An experience that will stay with me for a long time, and I'm sure with the surgical staff as well.
I have yet to see Dr Penner but was checking out his reviews. I just felt I needed to say that I am very pleased with his staff. Linda has been extremely helpful and prompt at returning my calls. I am nervous about the visit but she has been very reassuring.
