What People Say About Dr. Daniel Alfonso, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Very unprofessional office. Made an appointment. Literally called me three times within three minutes one day. The next day, called me 5 times in 5 minutes. I was out of the country at the time. This obsessive calling made me feel like I was dealing with a bill collector rather than a professional doctor's office. Made me feel uncomfortable with this doctor and I didn't go.

Great doctor, unfortunately his staff lack his ability, called 3 times in an hour span and was put on hold for over 10 min each occasion. How hard is it to take a call and make an appointment. I just called another doctor and was set up with an appointment in under 3 min.

I damaged two fingers and thumb with hedge clippers. Dr. Alphonso saw me within 3 hours. Next day be performed surgery (at a surgery center) to repair a nerve and stitch wounds. I suffered no post-operative pain at all. No significant waiting time on the first and subsequent 3 followup office visits, and no followup charges. After 6 weeks there is hardly any sign of which lingers bore the wounds. The doctor and his staff are highly professional, friendly, attentive and confidence building.

Dr. Alfonso took my emergency case on a Friday afternoon. He was extremely professional, competent, and precise. I would recommend him highly and over anyone else. He saved my finger and it healed perfectly. It is not often that you meet doctors as competent, dedicated, and knowledgable as he is.

He was very professional, seemed to actually care about what was going on with my finger, and was very friendly and even called me to follow up after my surgery.
