Professional statement

Dr Penate graduated from the University of Havana in 1990.He completed his residency in family medicine in Cuba. He then worked in South Africa from 1998 until 2000 where he practiced medicine in several different cities, acquiring tremendous clinical and surgical experience. He finished his (United States) residency in family medicine at the University of Mount Sinai in New York. He is a board certified doctor in Family Medicine. His thesis was based naturopathic treatments. Dr. Penate arrived in Miami in 2006 were he began working in a private practice covering all types of patient‘s 1 to 99 years of age. According to Dr. Penate, he has had many patients who have been tested for probable causes to their often bad moods and depression, but the test results came back normal. The doctor felt bad for his patients because it seemed like nothing was helping them. However it was not until 2009, when he began to conduct extensive research, that he realized that many patients have physiological disorders which are not detected by conventional tests. Taking into consideration that this problem is real and that his patients needed a different and customized approach, Dr. Penate went to pass training in natural medicine. “Who would believe I did that? Since I started this service in my office I have been thanked more than in my whole 20 years in the medical field. It makes me feel happy to be able to help my patients and have an alternative and different approach when traditional medicine does not work".

I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone, ever. I have a serious illness for the past 15 years. I knew I'd need to get a referral for the specialist so this is why I came to this primary. When I askedfor this referral, he assures me I didn't need one to schedule an appointment not that my pain was that serious. I tried making an appointment with the specialist, and surprise, surprise, I need a referral. I call back to get my referral and they tell me I will have to come back and see the doctor. Mind you, the next available date was not for another 2 weeks. Never again!!

The Doctor was very friendly and professional. His office staff is not anything like he is, they act annoyed that you're in "their" office,as if you've intruded on their playtime, not a single smiling face was present other than on theDoctor himself. There were 2 other patients in the office, and I observed his staff treated them with the same level of annoyance.

Professional yes, but professional like a salesman. I wouldn't recommend him. It felt like he was trying to sell me treatment instead of helping me. I won't be returning to him for regular exams.
