    Dr. Pons was patient with my many questions. His responses were clear and thorough. I left the office with a clear understanding of what to do next for both medical follow-up and personal health management.

    1.) Waiting Time extremely to long. 2.) Receptionist and other personal are plastic, unpleasant, no emphaty. 3.) Last year I called for two months and they where to busy to give me an appointment, said will call back and never did. You have to visit the office for an appointment. 4.) Office waiting room is much too be desired. Very uncomtable place. You can inform the Doctor of my survey
