Never listens to concerns

I avoid this doctor but love the others at the practice. Dr. Pont always makes me feel like I am over reacting and doesn’t listen to my concerns. Each time he has sent us home I’ve had to come back in, once the same day, after my child’s symptoms became worse. I don’t need medication every time we visit, but I’m not a new parent. I know my kids.

A+ doctor

I can't believe Dr. Pont would get anything other than 5 stars. He always listens, and most importantly, does not overreact or prescribe antibiotics unless necessary. He knows a virus from an infection and treats it respectively. He has quelled my fears on several occasions regarding potty training, illness, vaccinations, etc. We have moved an hour away, but I refuse to switch pediatricians because of his expertise.

Doesn't listen

I like this practice as a whole, but not Dr. Pont specifically. He always makes us as parents feel like we know nothing and are overreacting to things. It often takes many visits to have a problem resolved due to ignoring our concerns at the outset.
