She is a Nice person but not very pleased with my cataract removal outcome

Review for Dr. Aponte

He did not listen to my concern. He immediately latched on to a wrong diagnosis, which still remains in my chart today, without referencing my previous history. I have grave concerns about his practice after reading some other's concerns as well.

Dr. Hoxie is “adequate” but due to incomplete charting notes I was unable to address a follow up issue with his nurse when he was on vacation. I was also told that there was no physician covering for him. This is not an acceptable standard of care.
