She's a good Dr. but her staff is not, they say thy will call you back or make appointments for you but they don't. I've been with her about ten years or more and it wasn't always like this. That's why I'm looking for another doctor.

Dr. Pongos is the best. Have been with her for almost 5 years. Being a doctor and staff for a doctor is a challenge. You see many people with many problems. understandably not always very happy. I think her staff does their best. When I need to I follow up on things too! Thanks to all

If you're wanting a doctor to do little more than keep you up to date on your preventative or wellness screenings, this is the physician for you. If you are looking for a physician to listen to your healthcare-related needs, desires, and goals, I strongly encourage you to seek healthcare elsewhere.
