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.

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 |
