Patient Comments (10)

On March 29th, 2017, while waiting to see the Doctor, Cynthia (admin) called me up to the window and said, "Mrs.Booth, we have some bills for you here". I was shocked as my husband is fastidious about paying all of our bills on time. What she handed me as a "print out", not an invoice (actually titled "Patient Procedure Summary"). I almost fell to the floor when I saw the dates of service on these charges. They were from 2016 and one legit one from January 2017 (deductible had not been met).

Still waiting for a callback 8 years later from his incompetent staff to confirm whether or not my mom actually had colon cancer. I would really like to know this information for family history purposes.

Great friendly office staff. They are really good at listening and working with you on appointments, labs etc. very knowledgeable nurse practitioner. I am very pleased with them. I am a nurse myself so am a little picky with my healthcare providers.

He is a fabulous doctor. However, his office staff are rude and a I DON'T CARE ATTITUDE! Messages left with no return calls. Have to go to the office just to get answers you left messages for! His nurse is also fabulous just not the staff!

I felt as though I received very thorough care, as he took the time to answer all my questions and I didn't feel rushed out the door. The front desk staff was very welcoming and helpful.

When Lawnwood Regional Hospital was going to discharge me, Dr. Pena-Ariet over road the orders & admitted me for a 48 hour observation. 12 hrs later he had come in with Dr. Slack, I was chocking on iced tea. Upon exam, my throat was 90% closed off. I was transported to Emergency O.R. 10 minutes later, I was equipped with a traq. During the procedure I had coded 3 times and was placed on 100% life support for 2 1/2 weeks. If he did not admit me I was told I would have been dead in 2 days.

Doctor/nurse practitioner are great, HOWEVER- HORRIBLE HORRIBLE service from staff! Never returns phone calls, schedules appointments for an hour before the office even opens and before the doctor arrives. Wait time is terrible. Takes days and sometimes weeks to get prescriptions renewed or scripts and results from blood work. Will be looking for new doctor that has a better working staff.

I have made 3 appointments and have never seen the doctor. I have called and left voicemail for the nurse and have gotten no return call. Very poor service and care.
