I had to wait until nearly 3:00 PM to see the doctor for a 1:45 appointment. I like Dr. Alfonso but my time is important to me. When you give me a 1:45 appointment I show up at 1:30 because Iknow the doctors time is important. I would like to receive the same treatment in return.

I visited Dr. Alfonso for a surgery consultation after breaking my finger. While I did wait one hour to be seen, I was thankful for the wait because Dr. Alfonso is the best. He is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and kind. Heanswered all of my questions and gave me more than enough information which allowed me to feel at ease about surgery. The surgery went well and I am on the road to recovery thanks to Dr. Alfonso. I would 100% recommend his services.

I was able to get an afternoon appointment in only two days. Since I was a new patient it took me a while to fill out all the paperwork, but as soon as I finished filling it all out they calledme in to take x-rays. I was treated politely and in a friendly manner by every staff member, as well as by the doctor. I have no complaints about my visit.
