What People Say About Dr. Roberto Ponce, MD
Reply
The office building smells horrible. They charge 50 cents per card transactions (what kind of doctor does this?), and they do not respect appointment times. I waited for 45 minutes and had to walk out before being called back. They refunded me my copay, but refused to give me back the 50 cents they charged to swipe my card. Absolutely ridiculous.
