Both Dr. Pentland and Dr. Montoya were very considerate, very caring, and very thorough. Excellent medical experience.

Dr Pentland and her staff have been very open to discussions about my care and treatment and communicate very well with us. I would be lost without this staff!

[...] Thankfully I got a second opinion from the second dermatologist Dr. Penland. She seem to thoroughly listen to me, Inspect my toe & looked at my pics which resulted in a plausible conclusion to my issue. [...] but hopefully I was correctly diagnosed.

I was not given treatment options beyond the plan that we ended up going through with. I was told briefly what the plan was and then immediately told to begin prepping. I was not given time to consider if this was the best option for me and my life. [...] I was not given a clear set of instructions and left feeling confused about what to do next and when I could return to normal activities.
