Dr. W. Scott Pennington, Jr. M.D. FACS
“I find surgery a gratifying area of medicine because it often deals with acute life-threatening illnesses that may be cured by a single procedure. But as a child of a family practitioner, I learned that a physician’s work is really a ministry to the whole person and that it is a privilege to be involved in this healing process. As God enables me, my goal is always to provide patients with excellent, minimally invasive, up-to-date surgical care in a compassionate and caring manner.”

“As a child with asthma, I quickly learned of the power to heal possessed by my pediatrician. This awareness, coupled with a life-long fascination with human anatomy/physiology, led to my choice of surgery as a career. I believe that God is honored by excellence in the operating room and by compassionate care of people as individuals. It is exciting for me to have the privilege of helping others and to do so with the assistance and encouragement of trustworthy, partners and staff.”
Dr. John G. Touliatos, M.D. FACS
“My commitment as a surgeon is to provide the highest quality care with the most effective and progressive means available. Minimally-invasive techniques now allow us to perform complex surgeries with excellent outcome and minimal discomfort. This advance in medicine elevates the standard of care for surgery and has motivated me to advance in this area. I am very thankful to be a part of a group of surgeons who desire excellence in all things as I do. The physicians and staff share my beliefs and goals and we look confidently to the future as we advance together.”
