    Dr. Denny is the best

  • Mar 23, 2023

    Dr Denny thoroughly explained my concerns. She covered everything that I need.

  • Feb 6, 2023

    Dr. Denny is extremely accessible as a physician. She has always treated me (and my family) with care, warmth, and patience. Her approach has helped me in my healing process after having a stroke, and it is evident as her patient that she has extensive knowledge and is very thorough in investigating underlying causes of my stroke. She addresses the body and the mind at the highest level!
