Unethical & hustling his way to the top!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Alex M Aponte - Posted on October 21st, 2014
This man is rude, arrogant, never listens, but is sure he knows everything. It doesn't matter how long you've been a patient, he just doesn't care. I had a kidney stone and called for help. He told me to make an appointment with a urologist who had a waiting time of 3 mos. When I called back for help, I never got a return call. Bye.
BAD FOR CHILDREN- DO NOT GO
Self-verified patient of Dr. Alex M Aponte - Posted on July 11th, 2013
DO NOT GO HERE. ESPECIALLY WITH CHILDREN. I had to call over a dozen times to get a copy of our medical records faxed. Every time I needed paperwork, or copies of anything, it took WEEKS, and every time I called them to request it they were rude and abrasive. On top of that, the doctors are always changing shifts and being unavailable, so every time we went in we got stuck with a different doctor. One of the doctors ( I forget his name, he's a tall guy, likely early 30's, brown hair) was incredibly impatient and made sarcastic remarks about my special needs child. THEY ALSO SCREW UP BILLING. How do you "forget" to bill the insurance, seriously... SAVE YOURSELF THE TIME. DRIVE 10 MINUTES TO HAMPTON BAYS
Bad experience - wouldn't go back
Self-verified patient of Dr. Alex M Aponte - Posted on September 6th, 2012
My child was a walk-in on a Sat because he was sick when we were on vacation. We waited OVER TWO HOURS to see the doctor and the office wasn't the least bit crowded. The family that came in after us (also with a sick child) was in and out in less than half an hour (they were fortunate to see the nurse practitioner we later learned.) When we inquired about this, it was denied by all at first, and then eventually admitted to with little apology. Once the doctor saw us (he was also completely unapologetic about the wait), he spent a good a good amount of time with my child which we appreciated and he seemed competent and knowledgeable; however, he gave us a lot of information specifically about vitamin D (which had nothing to do with my child's illness) which was completely discredited by our own pediatrician in NYC when we returned home. Also, when I later called to follow up about paying the bill - surprise, surprise - the staff member who took my credit card information was incredibly rude! My recommendation would be to go somewhere else if at all possible!
your ear or another vital organ -- I only have time for one
Self-verified patient of Dr. Alex M Aponte - Posted on May 28th, 2012
My husband went to see Dr. Aponte for an urgent condition that was quite serious (he had previously seen another doc in his office and was sent to the hospital for testing without checking to see if indeed they were able to do the test...he suffered for hours and nearly died...no follow up) then when he saw Aponte, the doc said "I'm busy, which problem do you want me to address... the issue you went to the ER for or your ear -- I can only look at one today.".... Really???? And, he calls himself a doctor! Pathetic. We no longer go to THAT practice. Disgusting.

I have not had much experience with Dr. Aponte himself, but I have had experience with his office (particularly Dr. Linda Lizogubenko). I have never been happier than when I walked out of that office. It was the first time I felt I was truly listened to by a doctor. Dr. Lizogubenko is the nicest doctor I have ever met in my life. She is so personable and caring and chats with you to make you feel super comfortable. All of the other employees are no different. Dr. Aponte is an extremely great doctor and genuinely nice guy. Because of him, all of the staff always have a smile on their face. And that atmosphere makes a huge impact on how they treat their patients. They are all such nice people and are so patient with everybody. The office gets incredibly busy so sometimes you can wait a long time to get seen but it's well worth it. I waited an hour and a half to see somebody and after I left, I would have waited all day to be that happy with my experience.
