Dr. Aponte is very professional and has excellent bedside manners. She makes you feel like she is your good friend. You feel very comfortable with her. She takes the time to explain blood work in detail. She makes recommendations if it is needed. If you have questions she takes the time to answer them and make the recommendations as needed. She is very thorough and you will leave her office very satisfied. I have been going to her for the past ten years and I am very satisfied with her.

She offers suggestions for treatment that I would not have thought of. She is calming, although sometimes rushed she is able to answer my questions professionally and completely I go in with a list and go down the list and leave only when I am satisfied having the ability to have lab work done there and be treated there as well as the cooperation and help from her front office staff is very appealing I have referred several friends to her office and they have been very satisfied with her.
