Promptness, dedication, assertiveness, kindness, preciseness, knowledgeableness, and helpfulness are some of Gaston Ponte’s skills. He has helping me since day one with my condition’s journey. Also, his team answers my requests on time and they are available for all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Ponte as endocrinologist and physician.

My experience with this clinic was horrible. My purpose for the visit was because I have a tumor on my right adrenal gland. My first issue with this doctor was that my appointment was at 10 and I had to wait an eternity to see him. Second, he comes rushing as if he was running a marathon. During that quick session he is arguing with me that I have high blood pressure when my records clearly state that I don't have high blood pressure. His final diagnosis was that I have hyperglycemia, hypertensi

Dr. Ponte took time and listened to me, and asked a lot of questions. He was extremely thorough. He is very knowledgeable.

Dr Ponte is very unprofessional he put me on a medication for hypothyroidism that I told him I was allergic to besides being allergic to it he did not get the dosage correct I ended up after 3 weeks of calling his office begging him to see me and he refused. . I drove myself to Holmes Hospital and they admitted me checked my TSH level and I had zero thyroid in my body because of his pour judgement. Would not recommend

Knew nothing about important details about being Hypothyroid and meds, put me on no meds, spent 13 minutes w/ me 1st visit. I know go to an endo doc in private practice who spends an hour w/ me everytime, has me on the correct thyroid meds and I feel so much better.
in Indiatlantic, MO |
The Dr. was rude, spent virtually no time with me, answered my questions with disrespect, and spent more time looking at his phone than the patient. I went to another hospital and had a dramatically different experience. I intend to report in more detail on his hospitals survey which is veviewed by an independent third party.
in Indian Harbour Beach, FL |
Dr Ponte denied a referral for me, I have hashimotos thyroidits and he refused to give a reason why. Do not recommend this doctor at all!
