Dr. Joseph V Pongonis has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

This Dr and I go back 20 yrs though my visits with him were few..It was another Physician I saw. Recently he is burned out or simply apathetic, noncaring biding his time 'til retirement. The result is an extremely petty and small minded office staff who feel they own the practice, they are meanspirited and vindictive. Those that I refer to have been there longest. They have alienated others, besides myself. They are a true danger TO all patients and would NOT perform adequately even in a nursing home setting. The best Dr.s are long gone and this eysore on Frankford ave should close, forcing the worst organized ancillary staff to compete with younger more caring workers. This group never shined. It's best days???-long gone. Dr Cosable,young immature though competant doesn't realize the danger an ICOMPETANT office staff, and the above could land him and his brethen in court; for slander and malpractice. He needs to grow up and treat pts with respect. THIS BUNCH was not worth the time required to write this note........Disgusted.
