BEST PHYSICIAN EVER!!!!! Being in the healthcare profession myself, I know what it takes to provide high quality care to patients. Dr. Ponce has all the qualities. He is not only very knowledgeable, he is very attentive, patient, compassionate, thorough and you never feel rushed. His office staff is very professional, kind, and prompt to answer calls and schedule appointments. Never had to wait more than 5 min in waiting room. I'm so fortunate to have found him. Will never switch doctors Arlena

Friendly staff, clean environment. I love reading the different information they have while waiting for the provider to come into the room. I love how a staff member calls you back while filing out paperwork so your not waiting too long In the waiting area. It gives you something to do while waiting for the provider to come in and it speeds up the process of being in the office.

I went to see Dr Frank Ponce & I have never seen a dr that takes so much concern towards his patient! He takes the time to ask if anything ails you always up to the par on any of your refills no having to wait for pharmacy to get an ok from dr. This dr goes beyond to help you& if he can’t he will recommend someone. Not just after the insurance like other drs. I give Dr Ponce a great big 10+!!!!

Customer service is by far the Best. I've never wired longer than 10 minutes in the lobby. I don't feel like I'm a number.
