I'd never normally say a trip to the gyno was a good time but it almost was. Dr penso was thorough, explained everything and never made me feel like she had somewhere else to be

Dr. Penso was great. I felt very comfortable around her, and felt she hit the perfect balance of professionalism and warmth. In addition, the front desk staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I made my appointment on Zocdoc, and it was confirmed for the next day. Also, Dr. Penso has later Tuesday hours which is wonderfully thoughtful of real people who have to work during normal 8-4 OBGYN hours! I had a great, quick, professional, and friendly experience overall.
