Dr Penrose is a very nice doctor. She taught me the basics about my conditions and gave me different options of how to treat them. She was even honest about what she can and cannot provide and told me about otherdermatologists on the island that may provide more comprehensive services if the treatment at her office does not work. Highly recommended!

She assessed the problem quickly, told us what to worry about and what was normal and gave us options for the issues that needed to be addressed. We chose an optionand she applied the treatment right away. She described clearly what was needed in follow and suggested we contact her if more treatment was needed.

Dr. Penrose was fairly no-nonsense (which I like) but very friendly. Her assistant who got my initial medical info was also very nice. I had my issue rectified immediately with clear follow-up directions. The wait was quite long but they didapologize. I would definitely return if I needed to see a dermatologist again.
