I thought she was very professional, courteous, and explained things very well. I feel confident that she listened to my concerns and is going to help me get my Hashimoto's under control. Very pleased.

Dr Pena was a pleasure to meet with during our consultation. She thoughtfully listened to my symptoms while taking vigorous notes. I didn't feel rushed like I have with other Medical Doctors, it felt like she truly wanted to identify whatwas going on. She recommended an ultrasound and was able to do that on the spot, as well as sending me along to the lab to get my blood drawn. I was also offered a flu shot! It was a very productive appointment, and with Dr Pena's help I feel like I am on my way to getting more answers about my health concerns.
