"Dr. Pennington is the best orthopedic doctor here in Las Vegas. Since he has been here a short time from Oregon he has done surgery on my shoulder with outstanding results and then did surgery on my knee and again outstanding results. He explained the MRI and the treatment plan. He heard my concerns about previous doctors in the past and listened to me and mapped out a plan of treatment for me. He has a wonderful bed side manner and even called to check on me that night after surgery. I highly recommended Dr. Pennington. Thank you for coming to Las Vegas."

"Dr Pennington, why are you leaving? He is the best Dr. Made me feel so relaxed before my surgery. Now I have to follow you and get surgery in Arizona, bummer. I knew I should have gotten it done sooner. Well he's a great surgeon. "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
