Surgeon 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.”
