What People Say About Dr. Alfonso Prieto, MD
Reply
I have a implant in, I have a torn miniscus and they need approval from him to do a mri. Needless to say I've been waiting over a month for them to call me back after a million phonecalls to them. At this point I'm ready to take it out myself. Can't hurt anymore than my knee does!!!!
