Specialties

Dr. Jose R Ponte Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Emergency Medicine

    If your child ever becomes unstable and you rush to the hospital, a pediatric emergency medicine specialist will work to quickly diagnose the condition, start treatment and then continue to monitor symptoms until he/she is stable again. They are pediatricians specifically trained to handle medical emergencies and make quick decisions to treat infants and children.
    They have experience treating allergic reactions, poisonings, trauma injuries from accidents and complications that arise from any chronic illnesses, congenital conditions, asthma or diabetes. They can also diagnose the source of severe symptoms like fever, seizures and trouble breathing to get parents more answers.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Mother

Dr. Ponte is a kind physician with years experience. His bedside manner is awesome because he spent time with me and my husband explaining each detail of what we were to expect. I will always be grateful for the care and time he spent with my son. Because of him, my son is a healthy boy.

Very Rude and Unprofessional

He misdiagnosed me TWICE. He told my parents the headaches I complained about where just a cry for attention and that there was nothing wrong with me. He decided to give me Panlor though to 'Humor me'. Turns out my headaches were caused by bruising in my brain (I learned this when I made they transfered me from Plantation to Memorial because they OD'd me on Panlor and they had no room in the ICU for me). I only saw him twice in my five days I spent at Plantation General. Though he was nice to my parents, he was very rude to me. He also told them I was sexually active even though I told him confidentially when he had asked. (The second time he misdiagnosed me was when I was messed up on the Panlor he thought I was having a schitzophrenic attack). I DO NOT RECOMEND HIM!!
