Dr. Penrod is a good and professional care provider.

January 12, 2017

Dr. Penrod is a wonderful doctor. Since I had a little stroke earlier in December, he took the necessary time to check me out in my follow-up appointment and was very well aware of my situation. He is my primary care physician and I have complete confidence in him and in his care. Over the years, he has found problems with my health and we have moved together to correct them. I always look forward to my appointment with Dr. Penrod because I know I will be very well taken care of. Of course I recommend him anytime I get to others. He is simply the best.

December 28, 2016

Dr. Penrod spends time listening and asking questions to ensure good communication.

December 20, 2016


December 17, 2016

Dr Penrod listens carefully to my concerns and gives good advice.

December 17, 2016

As much as I dislike going to the doctor, I have complete and total confidence in Dr. Penrod. He is thorough and complete. He Listens to what I have to say and addresses my concerns in terms easily understood, as though he as all the time in the world, even though I know that he is very busy. He is probably the best primary care physician I have ever asked. I would and have recommended him to others without hesitation.

December 12, 2016

Dr. Penrod showed patience and kindness. Explained things clearly, including rationale behind decisions.

December 09, 2016

Dr. Penrod is great. I have been seeing him for a long time.

December 01, 2016

I appreciate Dr Penrod's expertise and medical care. Very thorough.

November 19, 2016

Dr Penrod listens carefully, understands the situation and takes his time explaining the problem and the follow up. He referred me to the appropriate specialist. I have great confidence in him.

November 15, 2016

Dr. Penrod is my primary care physician and has been for a number of years. I feel completely confident in him and his abilities. He had caught what would have been some very nasty problems early for me and has seen to my health in a very professional and friendly way. I trust him completely.

November 15, 2016

Dr. Penrod saved my life! He was the one whom recommended a stress test during my annual physical. The result of the stress test showed two complete blockages and up to 7 partial blockages to my heart. Following CABG surgery, I am feeling relieved that I could have suffered a heart attack or stroke at any moment while mowing the lawn, or shoveling snow.

October 29, 2016

He listened to my concerns, offered to initiate a referral and followed through. Yeah!

October 28, 2016

Minimally concerned, was efficient but apathetic

October 24, 2016

Never felt rushed, listened and asked questions

October 03, 2016

I like Dr. Penrod. He takes his time and makes sure I understand everything. He has a great sense of humor that makes me feel better. He isn't one of those doctors who act superior and make you feel ill at ease. If I have to go to the doctor, at least I can go to one in whom I have confidence and trust!

September 19, 2016

totally satisfing

September 19, 2016

Dr. Penrod does talk rather fast, You must pay close attention to what He is saying in order to know what He means, also save all questions until after He is finished explaining results, sometimes this can be good & sometimes bad because You might forget what You want to ask.

September 12, 2016

I really love Dr penrod

September 02, 2016

I'd recommend Dr. Penrod to everyone. He's the best.

August 26, 2016

Dr. Penrod has been wonderful -- professional and caring. He has provided care that was personal and appropriate for the needs of the patient. We are so appreciative for the medical services he has rendered to our family.

August 19, 2016

As Always, excellent experience.

August 05, 2016

Dr. Penrod has been wonderful; not only this visit, but certainly in the past as well.

August 01, 2016

I will never see Dr. Penrod again. He is condescending and cocky. Very put off to see me there. I have never been treated as poorly as Dr. Penrod treated me, not only this visit, but every other visit as well. I would not recommend him to anyone, ever. I have worked for physicians for the past 30 years and only had the displeasure to meet one other like him in that time. What a poor reflection on the University of Utah.

June 29, 2016

Dr. Penrod understood very quickly my situation, came up with very good suggestions for my care, ordered a number of relevant tests, explained his concerns and his suggestions very clearly. It was a very positive experience for me, I think that I will be very happy to have him as my primary care physician and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

June 29, 2016

Although I have been seeing this provider infrequently for primary care for quite sometime, I felt that he showed little concern or respect for the symptoms I was describing to him. I have not been able to resolve any of the health issues I have been experiencing and have had no f/u on any of these issues. Although I am supposed to set up another appointment to see if these conditions have been improving, I feel the need to change providers due to the lack of concern and involvement this provider has shown towards me.

June 21, 2016

Dr. Penrod is my primary care physician and as such, he is excellent! I am very grateful he is looking after my health, I would recommend him to anyone.

June 14, 2016

I have recommended Dr. Penrod to several people. He is very thorough and responsive. i can email him with any questions I have and usually receive a reply within the day or even an hour or two later.

June 01, 2016

It didn't seem like he was listening or that he cared. He also asked me if I was married, I said "yes", and then he asked "to a man or a woman?" Really?????????????

May 31, 2016

Dr. Penrod is excellent. He is very thorough and never makes one feel rushed. I appreciate his professionalism and care.

May 27, 2016

we changed from Intermountain Health. The care we received is 100% better at the U of U hospital

May 26, 2016

Excellent care by Dr. Penrod!!!! I have enormous respect for his analytical skills. He is considerate, explains everything candidly, and proceeds cautiously to eliminate potential life-threatening complications (in this case, a possible pulmonary embolism). Really grateful to him. Have private medical insurance (not group or HMO medicare) as well as high-end Aetna secondary coverage, but wouldn't see anyone else in SLC.

May 22, 2016

Its hard to find a good doctor that will understand the conditions you deal with and how much these conditions affect daily life. I feel the complexity of my issues are there, but the caring and support in trying resolve it is totally downward spiral. I came to this physician in trusting he would help me not blantely not show what outcome would become or if this condition is treatable. Its complex issue, understand but its hard but in this end with no answers to my problem.

May 17, 2016

What a great doctor!

May 06, 2016

because my pain(Dr Penrod originally thought it was Bursitis, and after 3 weeks without relief, he was going to give a cortisone injection. after asking more and moving my leg and observing movement, suggested an MRI instead since may be damage to tendon, ligament or possible tear to meniscus. He suggested I schedule it and Followup with exam by Dr Maak, with whom I have seen in the past for my other knee. Dr Penrod was thorough and explained his diagnosis process. I appreciated that.

April 26, 2016

Dr. Penrod is very thorough and spends as much time needed for my visits.

April 24, 2016

Everyone was very professional

April 19, 2016

Dr Penrod called the next day with results of my blood test

April 15, 2016

I trust Dr. Penrod so much I had my daughter change from her Internal Medicine doctor to him.

March 18, 2016

I had 2 health care concerns I discussed in detail with Dr Penrod. Dr Penrod also performed all the normal annual exam procedures. The exam was not completed until all my concerns were completely addressed.

March 17, 2016

Always a good experience. Informative, cordial, no complaints!

March 16, 2016

Dr. Penrod is outstanding. I appreciate that he doesn't act like he's in a rush to finish up with me and get to the next patient. I believe that if I needed another 30 minutes to talk to him he would accommodate me. He doesn't act like he's stressed or in a rush which makes the appointment go smoothly.

March 11, 2016

The doctor did answer my questions and order labs, but I got the impression that he was not especially engaged in my care. This was the first physical that I have ever experienced fully clothed. He asked if I had any moles that I was concerned about, but did not offer a check for any potential issues that I might not be able to see for myself.

March 09, 2016

Doctor is very kind and helpful in any matters and issues.

March 08, 2016

I love Dr. Penrod.

March 05, 2016

I'm 60 years old and can honestly say that I have never had a better experience with a first appointment with a physician. Dr. Penrod was interested, asked questions, explained his theories, asked what I thought of the plan, was extremely thorough, instilled confidence, and gave me the plan in writing. He and the staff set up follow up appointments for me. I left committed to following through on my preventive care.

February 17, 2016

I like Dr. Penrod. He is a very competent MD, excellent provider, helpful, caring & down to earth.

February 02, 2016

Dr. Penrod is my primary care doctor and he is great. I would gladly recommend him to others.

February 01, 2016

If anything, Dr. Penrod is over-solicitous about including me about treatment. I really depend on him to know if I should be taking medications. While I prefer not to take any if they aren't truly necessary, I would like to know that he, being the doctor, would make the best decision for me in that regard.

January 25, 2016

Dr. Penrod took time to talk in detail about my atrial fibrillation. He was willing to refer me for a consult with cardiology. When I couldn't get an immediate appointment with cardiology I was able to go back to Clinic 2 and Dr. Penrod took the time to answer a couple more questions. I was very satisfied with my visit.

January 11, 2016

Dr Penrod is awesome. He always takes the time to talk to me and find out if I have any concerns or if there is anything I do not understand and I really appreciate it. He has been a great doctor for me.

January 11, 2016

Dr. Penrod went over the results of a dexascan to my satisfaction.

January 07, 2016

I will be returning to Dr Penrod for follow-up while I am still in Utah.

January 06, 2016

Very easy to talk to, friendly

December 08, 2015

We had a good discussion.

November 29, 2015

I have been a patient of Dr. Penrod's for several years. Throughout my time under his care, he has been considerate, clear and conscientious as a health care provider.

November 19, 2015

Dr discussed many health prevention issues with me and gave me the opportunity to agree or disagree. Impressed that Dr Penford did not prescribe too many more medications, considering my low tolerance of different medications.

November 07, 2015

Good first visit!

November 04, 2015

Dr. Penrod is a wonderful physician and I trust him completely. He cares about me and always looks after my needs. He is my primary care physician and as such, he has my total confidence.

September 18, 2015

I was wondering if I needed the Dr. to do a biopsy on lesion/slow to heal crusty spot above my eye he froze & told me he was concerned that it may be a form of cancer or pre-cancer. The Dr. seemed hurried to go to his next appt. as he indicated, & I forgot to ask him about another concern I had.

September 13, 2015

my first visit with this physician

September 02, 2015

the best doctor we have ever seen

August 28, 2015

I was having random leg pain and Dr. Penrod suggested several ways to deal with it. The leg pain as not appeared since do several of the things mentioned.

August 28, 2015

This was my first visit with Dr. Penrod, I feel as though we have established a good patient/physician relationship.

August 28, 2015

Dr. Penrod is very personable and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable with his care taking into consideration my numerous medical problems that are treated by specialists here at the U.

August 15, 2015

He was knowledgeable but he was awkward when it came to interacting and that made me feel awkward.

July 19, 2015


July 17, 2015

June 10, 2015

My physician is great. I am lucky to have a doctor.

May 30, 2015

Dr. Penrod is terrific. I would gladly and enthusiastically recommend him to anyone

May 14, 2015

Dr. Penrod was excellent at testing me for possible strep infection, pertussus and microplasm. I felt that I had a very thorough exam to determine the best treatment.

May 08, 2015

It is always excellent...

April 23, 2015


April 13, 2015

I loooove Dr. Penrod. You can tell he loves what he does and he is good at it. I love how easy it is to get a hold of him and I love how quickly he responds to my needs. He is caring and compassionate while still maintaining a professional attitude. Plus, he is cute.

March 19, 2015

The doctor didn't want to take care of any of the problems that I came if for. He wanted to refer me to a different "specialty" for each problem. So the main problem that I came in for, never got resolved. I have to wait another 6 weeks to get in with another specialist.

March 07, 2015

Dr. Penrod was very down to earth, listened well as I explained my concerns & needs, explained everything he was doing for me, talked about my next f/u appt., spoke clearly & effectively, & allowed ample time to complete my physical exam. I have confidence in working w/Dr. Penrod & do recommend him as a reference to others when appropriate. Post Tx report: I requestered my tests results hard copies be mailed to me, & they were received w/ in 2 days of request. Rating: "*****/5"

February 28, 2015

I have confidence in Dr Penrod and review all my medical concerns with him. This includes interactions with other medical specialists and all medicenes.

February 16, 2015

very pleased

February 13, 2015

Dr. Penrod is very professional... and a pleasure to visit.

February 04, 2015

Dr. Penrod takes plenty of time to answer all questions and give advice.

January 20, 2015

My father has seen Dr Penrod a few times. Before that, he was a long term patient of Dr. Caine's. I have yet to determine Dr Penrod's abilities as a diagnostician, which is not my complaint. My complaint lies with his ability to communicate with my father and me and his poor bedside manner. During the last visit, I felt that he was particularly rude and dismissive.

December 18, 2014

Very impressed with Dr. Penrod.

December 03, 2014

Dr. Penrod is great. We recommend him to our friends. He'll have his plate filled soon, if he doesn't already.

November 21, 2014

He listened attentively to my concerns and went the extra mile to take care of my needs. he also volunteered additional prescription for my comfort.

November 20, 2014

Dr. Penrod is my primary doctor and I trust him completely. He has taken care of me for some years now and I am extremely happy with his care and concern for my health. He has caught problems and has moved immediately to inform me and to propose a strategy to relieve my condition. He is the man!

November 17, 2014

I liked the pharmacist coming in to discuss meds. I really appreciate Dr. Penrod and I definitely believe he is concerned with my health.

November 09, 2014

I only see Dr. Penrod once a year, but he seems to remember everything about me with no reminders needed from me.

November 06, 2014

He is an amazing dr. I do refer people to the office as often as I can

November 02, 2014

great service and care

November 02, 2014


October 31, 2014

I have no doubt that Dr. Penrod is a qualified physician, but he might work a little on his interpersonal skills (i.e., reassuring patients that they will be alright, especially when talking to them about potentially embarrassing health conditions).

October 09, 2014

Dr Penrod and his staff showed incredible concern for me and my problem. I was very impressed with everyone there.

September 30, 2014


September 20, 2014

didn't see any provider. just an MA

September 19, 2014

He seems to be more relaxed.

September 02, 2014

Doctor Penrod is my primary Doctor for 5 years, he is dedicated to his job. He is a great Doctor.

August 28, 2014

Dr. Penrod is always appropriately friendly. He is very good about answering any questions or concerns I may have and never makes me feel like he is in a rush to move on to the next patient. I have complete confidence in the care he provides and is one of the best physicians I have ever had.

August 18, 2014

Great doctor. He listens and has good lab ideas.

July 23, 2014

Dr. Penrod is terrific. He knows me well and is always very interested in my thoughts as well as shows great concern about my health generally. I trust him completely. He has uncovered, in the past, health concerns that could have been big problems for me and I am grateful that he is my primary care physician.

July 20, 2014

Dr. Penrod spot on with initial visit , engaged, concerned, question probing, but he listened as well to my health concerns, took immediate proactive action, I like that.

July 12, 2014

Dr. Penrod has been my physician of choice for several years. I travel great distances to keep him and his staff, as my care provider's.

June 26, 2014

Dr. Penrod was very patient and explained the pros and cons of changing my medications and explained why it would not be appropirate.

May 30, 2014

he listened to all my health concerns and addressed each one with an answer I could understand. it was a good experience.

May 24, 2014

Again, I felt like I had all the time in the world to consider my issues with Dr. Penrod. He was thorough yet efficient.

May 20, 2014

My husband and I went to establish care with Dr. Penrod. He had heard some really good things about him. I was not at all happy with the care I recived. He seemed very rushed. He didnt seem to care about our concerns at all. I felt like the whole time he just wanted to get the appointment over with. As an employee here at the University of Utah I was not pleased with the care I received. I don't think I will be recommending him to anyone else.

May 10, 2014

OK, I'm probably a problem patient but I can cope

April 23, 2014

I would recommend Dr. Penrod and the excellent care the University provided

April 17, 2014

Provider was rushed, didn't seem interested in my perspective and was dismissive to my thoughts. Seemed to not believe what I described as symptoms. Didn't even advise me about needing contrast for a scan. Just gave paperwork and told me to make the appointments after I got a blood draw. Was shocked as an employee how he treated me. I would hope that it was a bad day for him. Really have no desire for follow up in the clinic.

April 05, 2014

As a 50 year old, I have been to a few doctors over the years. Dr. Penrod is one of the best doctors I have been to for treatment of any kind throughout my experience.

April 03, 2014

In and out. Obviously, Dr. Penrod has too many patients scheduled. I felt rushed.

March 27, 2014

Dr. Penrod is a very knowledgeable, sincere and compassionate physician. He has been my primary care for a year and 1/2. I came to him in not such a good state of mind. He talked to me and guided me towards the help I needed. His care has made all the difference in the world for both my physical and mental well being.

March 21, 2014

Good experience.

March 19, 2014

I brought my husband to the appointment and I like that Dr. Penrod included him in my care so he wasn't just a bystander. I appreciated that.

March 07, 2014

Fantastic Physician

February 13, 2014

Dr. Penrod seemed distracted at first but later understood the problem and provided help.

February 11, 2014

Excellent. He caught what was missed in the ER two days earlier. Thanks to Dr. Penrod I recovered quickly.

February 09, 2014

again, a good experience

August 05, 2013

nurse very professional and quick, (student)PA overly thorough based on history and what I was there for, doctor always good, that's why I keep coming back to him.

August 04, 2013

I have been to the hospital numerous times in the last six months mostly with my husband and now for myself. After awhile all the visits run into each other. We both just want to say that every time we go we are surprised how the service and the quality of the people never changes. It is always more than we could ever hope for after what we have experienced sometimes at other health care facilities.

June 19, 2013

Provider took the time to explain things.

June 18, 2013

I realize that I have several different issues going on at once. This can be difficult to deal with on a first time visit. I dislike first time doctor visits, and this visit was much different experience than previous visits. I felt at ease and unstressed. I appreciate the extra time, and the thoughtfulness duriing the exam. I also like the new online services as well.

June 12, 2013

Dr. Penrod and I are growing older/old together.

June 10, 2013

Dr. Penrod was worth the wait!

December 04, 2012

The pa and doctor care were better than I expected. I was very pleased with the knowledge and experience of each person.

Care provider was unfamiliar with the specific condition because it is very rare, but worked with the referring doctor to develop a diagnostic and treatment plan. Very thorough on the general physical exam.

Dr. Penrod really was so great. He really took the time to go over all of my concerns and to explain them with me in a way that I could understand. I would recomend him to anyone. five stars :)

October 23, 2012

I appreciate the University's system of incorporating all of the patient's exams, tests, surgeries and medications into one patient file, so that Dr. Penrod can address any past or current issues. I feel very well taken care of!

October 23, 2012

He could use some research on CVID and problems associated with it

September 26, 2012

Dr. Penrod strikes the perfect balance of treating another doctor. He discusses options, EBM behind those options, and allows me input in the plan

September 25, 2012

This was my first visit to the clinic, and the physical was pretty straightforward. Wasn't a lot to differentiate care received relative to other offices.

September 25, 2012

We decided to change the dosage on one of my medications and discussed it in depth. He listened to my concerns and ordered another blood test to answer my question.

September 25, 2012

Dr. Penrod was very friendly and courteous and did not seem rushed at all.

September 20, 2012

Dr. Penrod was very patient, thorough, and at no point ever condescended to me or made me feel silly about my concerns!

September 19, 2012

Penrod gave me a very thorough discussion of the pros and cons of PSA screening

September 17, 2012

Dr. Penrod is great. I was able to be seen the same day I called. My concerns were addressed and I feel good about the visit.

September 10, 2012

interacting with Dr.Penrod is pleasant, non-threatining

August 28, 2012

I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Penrod

August 17, 2012

Very accomodating.

July 30, 2012

July 18, 2012

I am very much satistactory so far in the past years in clicnic 2.

Dr Penrod is a very thoughtful and knowledgeable doctor

May 08, 2012

Dr. Penrod scares me but most drs do. He is really good, it is me that is wierd.

May 04, 2012

Dr. Penrod is probably the very best internist I have ever seen. He is appropriately friendly, takes the time to listen to any questions or concerns I might have without appearing to be rushed and I have absolute confidence in him. Would I recommend him? I already have.

Thank you Dr Penrod.

March 22, 2012

Already did recommend Dr. Penrod to others, they also have had a grand experience.

March 21, 2012

Again, all aspects of my care at all the offices I have been taken care of have been the best I have experienced any where. And out of them all so far, Dr. Penrod and has staff has been the best or just as good as any I have experienced so far coming to your hospital, they can not do any better than all that is humanly possible in such a setting.

March 13, 2012

He seems like a great doctor, he certainly listened to me and was on board with my care concerns and attempts to get better. He gave me helpful ideas right away. He was a much more positive experience than I have had with previous doctors. I am hopeful that will continue throughout future visits.

February 29, 2012

I usually see another provider in the clinic, but Dr. Penrod was equally as nice.

February 16, 2012

I was told I would be contacted the following day with the results of the X-ray. A week has passed. I still haven't heard from anyone. So I called Ashley who was to call me back today after she looked into it. Still haven't heard anything as of 3:36 p.m.

February 15, 2012

I was very happy with this visit. I felt like Dr. Penrod really cared about me and my health. He offered helpful suggestions. He was willing to take the time to listen to my concerns and didn't appear rushed.

January 31, 2012

The choices really could offer a Not Applicable option.

January 28, 2012

Dr. Penrod was WONDERFUL.

January 27, 2012

Very good experience.

January 26, 2012

Dr. Penrod is always good at asking questions, knowing what medications I'm taking, and their possible side effects. Has good records of past visits and concerns.

January 11, 2012

I liked the way Dr. Penrod asked me about any concerns I have. He wanted to help me be in the best health I can be and gave me several suggestions and ideas. I was not just someone to rush through--he took his time.

January 06, 2012

I thought that Dr. Penrod was vary patient and really listened to all of my concerns. The previous doctors I visited were somewhat immature and seemed like they were almost guessing the diagnosis. I was confident in the diagnosis without a doubt, I left as if a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. I know that I am the type of patient who is a pain in the gluteus maximus, but I still felt like I was being listened to.

January 06, 2012

I think my overall health care needs may be too complicated, and sometimes I don't feel like I am listened too, rather more a problem

January 05, 2012

I appreciate the added information from the doctor. It was very helpful.

January 04, 2012

very good
