Dr. Ponce is one of the nicest, courteous doctors I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. He explained everything to me at s level I could understand. I didn’t feel rushed. He was very assuring and knowledgeable. His office staff, on the other hand, needs to learn how to deal with patients.

He was mean. Actually asked me, "So what do you want out of this?" I had no idea what to answer. What an awkward thing to say. How about answers for all of my mystery symptoms and to be healthy. He was VERY cold and hard to speak with. Office staff were fabulous though. Switching to a new doctor in the sams office.

He is not reactive to a patient in pain. No sense of urgency for his patients. He is a wimp when it comes to dealing with complaints on the RUDE office staff. Won't take phone calls from his patients when they have a question! I was going through a rough time and in a lot of pain, as a patient for a few years, it was as if he didn't even care. Didn't recommend a pain specialist, didn't help me when his office staff just sent me away without helping me with pre-approvals, wouldn't return my call.
