Dr. Penalosa is the perfect pediatric doctor for a nervous, worry-wart parent like myself. He has cared for my children since their birth (my oldest is now 18), and he has always shown them great attention. When they were little and I was new at this parenting thing, Dr. Penalosa was able to soothe my fears when childhood illnesses were simple illnesses. When I brought my daughter in because she just wasn't feeling right, Dr. Penalosa quickly determined that her illness was, in fact, quite serious. He is a doctor that understands parents' worries, and the preciousness of healthy children. He works to heal and soothe all. I am so grateful we have Dr. Penalosa as our pediatrician!

Dr. Penalosa is an educated, down-to-earth doctor skilled in the art of dealing with worry-wart parents. He doesn't sweat the small stuff, but is consistently able to recognize if there is a larger issue. Dr. Penalosa does not believe in over-medicating, and will deliver plain talk concerning immunizations, leaving the choice for the parents. I am 100% confident in his skills!
