He is the best! He saved my life! I had pancreatitis real bad, almost died. Can’t say enough good thing about him. It’s been five years now, I am doing great. Can’t drink alcohol anymore, but I am alive and very active.

I recently had an endoscopy with ultrasound by Poneros. The following evening, I was rushed to the emergency room with excruciating abdominal pain. Poneros, in the ONLY phone call he made to me in the ensuing three weeks, was to tell me the pain wasn't being caused by pancreatitis -- "impossible", he said. An hour later, it was diagnosed as acute pancreatitis and I remained hospitalized for three days and recovering for another 2.5 weeks. Dr. Poneros NEVER checked on or contacted me. BAD!
