What People Say About Dr. Neil Ponder, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was impressed with Dr Ponder. He is easy to understand, and very explanatory. I could not think of questions to ask him. So when he was explaining my diagnoses, he would offer questions up that were related, and then answer them! That is an amazing way of educating a patient because we all go home and have questions. He also took his time, like he had no where else to be than providing patient care for me. His staff is very professional and friendly. Glad I found a good doctor!

Total nightmare! Wasn't even my Dr, but involved himself anyway. He called me and it quickly became clear that he had misunderstood what I needed (based on a message I'd left for my own Dr. with the receptionist). When I tried to stop him and explain he got flat out aggressive, yelling at me to calm down (I was confused at that point but not upset), telling me I didn't understand what was going on, and shouting at me to stop yelling at him even though the complete opposite was true. Stay away!!!
