  • The office is very old and kind of dark. The Receptionist was nice. Dr. Davis seems very skilled technically, but doesn't have a very good bedside manner. Doesn't explain what he is going to do and doesn't take the time to answer questions. Seems hurried and didn't not make me feel comfortable about my enlarged tonsils. Wanted to do a tonsillectomy but I didn't have confidence in him being able to provide aftercare bc he is so rushed, doesn't answer questions, and is a single practitioner.

  • there is none better. iam 71 years old and wish i had met her early in life. ive been to numerous doctors over the course of life, but never one better. she listens. she documents everything. we went over recent blood, and the meaning of each high or low reading. she examined me head to toe again. also on previous visit. she referred me to a endocrinology. which i did make a appointment with. this was most impressive to me. the reason is lots of doctors think they are experts in every area. will never admit they may not know something. will just keep sending for one test after another. then make there best guess. not doctor Aguilar. i have the utmost respect for her.  i say she is the best of the best.

  • I started going to Williams, Goldman & Watson at the beginning of a new pregnancy around week 7/10 back in July of 2015. I had not been to their practice before the start of this pregnancy. Overall I think the group does the best they can do within the horrible Florida healthcare system.
    I will start this post out with saying that I am an RN of 5 years with experience mainly in Critical Care and a passion for labor/delivery that I have been unable to pursue in my career as of yet. I went into nursing initially to become a nurse midwife one day and still fully plan to pursue that dream.
    The midwifes and OB doctors do most of the uncomplicated ultrasounds, which is very different for me. I came from Memphis, TN and was used to a very detailed & pre-cautious MD/ OB practice- but this was the norm for the area since Memphis has fought high infant mortality rates for decades. My MD in Memphis with my first pregnancy did many things that I became accustomed to being "the norm", I'll explain. During my first pregnancy I started out learning I was pregnant at the ER on a Sunday, and was so early pregnant I think my HCG levels weren't even over 1000 yet. The two ultrasounds at the ER didn't show a heartbeat, and my OB had an appointment set aside for me the next day to come in and re-evaluate my current health state with her own new findings- she did another ultrasound (that's three now) and drew another HCG level. I was going back to the office for the next WEEK AND A HALF every two days, without fail, until we had a heartbeat on vaginal ultrasound. She did all of this not because I have ever had an ACTUAL ectopic pregnancy, but because due to personal health history I was HIGH RISK for ectopic pregnancy. Then she saw me routinely and as things came up- borderline gestational diabetic (never truly spilling protein/ketones in urine and was well-controlled when I did eat the appropriate diet) she treated me as if I had the full-blown issue. From the moment I tested slightly high on my short and long glucose tolerance test she had me testing my sugar 4x a day, doing slightly more frequent visits at first and then at the end (around week 32/34) she had me in the office doing a 3D ultrasound and regular USG every week until I delivered. I feel like I have as many preterm pics of my little boy as I do post birth pics, haha. But this was all very structured and methodical- you go downstairs and have the ultrasound done by the USG tech, all of the techs are trained in the same fashion (but I had one tech that I saw every time except twice, and didn't have to ask for her), then you went upstairs, did your urine, saw the nurse (Bonnie), then the doctor, then did labs in office and left after checking out with your next appointment set up on the way out the door. ---This is not how it is in ANY office I have found in Florida, even a doctors office recommended personally by several nurses and doctors (not WGW group, a different doctor). 
    When I have gone to this OB practice it has taken two different ultrasounds performed by a midwife and an MD who both admitted they were not "highly trained" to get what they call here a level two ultrasound done, and even then it was scheduled at All Children's in St Pete. (Very different from having a "level two" done every time you see your doctor, even for routine visits, in the actual doctor's office.) It has taken 18 weeks to finally get A doctor to agree on my due date, which was three days off from my originally stated due date but they didn't listen to me because they wanted to go by my last period date instead because they refused to do a REAL ultrasound at the beginning of the pregnancy. 
    I do like the concept they practice that you see a different midwife/MD each time you go to an appointment until you have seen them all so you know each face when you deliver (just in case), but so far I think that Danielle Cizek ARNP, CNM is the best. She has a very strong knowledge base for both healthy, uncomplicated pregnancies/ births and high risk- I could tell after talking with her about her experience and her responses to certain questions I asked both about her career and patient interactions and personal questions. She has a very good nursing intuition for her patients that I picked up on when I was asking questions regarding my specific work situation (Im around flouroscopy and radiation) and with having thyroid autoimmune disease- she didn't brush my concerns off as "well it's probably just..." like most healthcare workers do. I appreciate this kind of respect as a patient because I strive to really listen to my patient's and their loved ones when they tell me things AND I go out of my way to translate my patient's concerns to their doctors when it could potentially have an effect on the diagnosis or outcome in their care, irregardless of how silly or trivial the information may sound to the doctor. Let me say this isn't easy as a nurse working in critical care because the patient is very sick and most doctors aren't concerned with possible causes of concern like a House episode- despite what the show may portray. 
    I didn't like Dr. Lauren Fuhrig hardly at all. When I asked her why I needed to take the antibiotic they called in for me I asked what it was for and she said "you had a UTI the last visit". I said "I am aware that my urine grew group B strep in the culture, but the urinalysis did not show a high white count, any leukoesterase or other abnormalities. So is the Keflex a prescribed treatment for the group b strep and if so is it supposed to treat it completely?" Her response was "you need to take the antibiotic for the urinary tract infection" after she stared at me blankly for a few seconds. I think I could have gathered that information from my own hospital-grade medicine app. It was clearly obvious she just prescribed and treated her patients based off of whatever the textbook said and had very little, if any, awareness of treating based off of evidence found in new studies/ articles/ group analyses. That's the kind of doctor who will do a c-section just because their textbook says so and not based off of the newest research or the individual patient's circumstance.
    Overall the office/practice is better than two other practices that I have been to, but has some improvements to make.

  • When you come for your first visit he orders your first sleep study to rule out or diagnose sleep apnea. The second study carefully exams the stages of sleep. I had no delta sleep which is the restorative part of night. This accounted for my severe daytime sleepiness. dr. Perino treated the sleep apnea and I'm still wearing the CPAP machine. He is also treating the fact that I do not get that deep restorative sleep. He slowly upped the dosage of a special medication until I reached the proper level for me. It works and I get a restful night of sleep and I know longer experience daytime tiredness. Another reason for my daytime tiredness was my sluggish thyroid. None of the thyroid medication thus prescribed worked. The one he prescribed is working amazingly well. I have all sorts of energy, my depressed mood has alleviated, and I'm losing weight like never before. This too, is a wonderful successful story. To me this is the way doctoring should be. One doctor treating the whole body.

    The way the specialties are broken up nobody knows what anyone else is doing. I bring my blood work that other Drs. order to Dr. Perrino and he orders his own as well. At the moment, I am on complete bed rest so I cannot go and see him. On Friday, I see the doctor who is treating me for my circulatory problems and I will see where I go from here. If I don't have to have anything like surgery which is a distinct possibility, I will make an appointment immediately and drive to Tampa to see Dr. Perrino. My blood pressure is sky high and I went to my primary care doctor and I do not have faith that his description is going to change anything. We'll see what the cardiologist does because they are well aware of my numbers because I report to them through their portal. I take my blood pressure as often or more often than if I were in the hospital. I have to get things settled soon so I don't run out of the special sleep medicine I have. Because he will not prescribe it in less he sees you. Which is as it should be.

    For years, I have suffered from severe migraine headaches. He prescribed a medication which was titrated up slowly to the dosage where it began working and I no longer have headaches. To me that is another miracle. You can see as Dr. Perino looks over the records and they are paper records not computer records, that he is always thinking and contemplating. I believe he is a genius. He's brilliant! I really trust him completely.

    His office is beautiful! It's like an art gallery full of the most beautiful works of art you can ever imagine! You can sit and look and just marvel at the beauty of the works hanging on his walls. His taste in art is impeccable.

  • I have been seeing him for many, many years and I trust him. My adult son also goes to him. Because he knows my illness at times I can call him because I am getting an infection. I can tell him my appointment is not until next week so he will start me off on an antibiotic and listen to me. He is real good about paying attention to me. When I go in there I don't feel like I am a stranger with him; he remembers and knows all about me. He met my daughter one time and he remembers her. I 100-percent recommend him. I get blood work every six months. Even if he is at the hospital, he always has a doctor on call so there usually is someone there to help me. The office environment is excellent; they are fun and professional at the same time. I usually don't have to wait when I am there for an appointment, but I may have to sometimes because another patient may need extra help. He has a letter posted explaining that if other patients need extra time they will gladly provide that too. He does not rush patients in and out. He always asks me at the completion of the appointment if there is anything else I need help with. The staff members are professional and very nice. He is very good about working with my other doctors. I can hear his caring when he deals with his other patients.  He does have an accent.

  • The staff and office environment are pleasant and friendly. They seem nice. The first time we went for a general physical and had blood work and the second time, they went over what it meant and what you needed to do or if you were fine, that was great. We didn't have to wait at all for our appointment. The doctor and staff were just so nice. The communication has been great. After you're done, they send you a full plan of what was discussed and your test results and follow-up and everything, so you have it in writing. I would absolutely continue to use them in the future.

  • I have been seeing doctor aguilar for different reasons for approx. 10 years. she in my opinion excellent. you are not rushed. she will

    listen, take what ever time is necessary.  the last visit was due to a skin aliment that I thought I new what is was. I was wrong. dr. aguilar  informed me it was a fungus. her nurse cathy called in the rx to my pharmacy for me. cathy also very thorough. I recommend this doctor to any friend neighbor or family member I know.

  • I switched to Dr. Nagibina when there was a turnover in office staff at my previous rheumy. I have been on Lyrica for at least 5 years and I have found out that no one in this office has a DEA number. Lyrica is considered a controlled substance....I take it for peripheral neuropathy... and no doctor in this office can write a prescription for it. An arthritis clinic that can't write for pain medication? Time to find a new rheumatologist.

  • I found Dr. Hamame after a terrible experience with another provider I found on Angie's List. His office staff was friendly, professional, and managed to get me an appointment the same day because I was having complications from a prior flu virus, even though I was a new patient. The office is spotlessly clean, and they seem to schedule appointments with appropriate time between each one because the waiting room was not crowded and I was taken to an exam room promptly. The doctor listened, communicated well, and didn't seem rushed at all. He ordered several tests, but when I explained I have a very high deductible policy and would be out of pocket for these expenses he suggested we begin with one and rule things out as we went. I greatly appreciate his willingness to be conservative as long as it doesn't compromise my care.
    After my appointment, Dr. Hamame walked me to the front desk and explained to the lovely ladies there what needed to be done. They called the testing facility for me, gave them the information and sent me over immediately. Later that afternoon I received a call from the doctor with the results and a treatment plan. On Monday, I received a follow-up call and spoke to the doctor again.
    Dr. Hamame is now my primary care physician and I've seen him again for follow-up on the initial November visit. He and his staff continue to impress me and I'm thrilled to have found them.

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Santiago's for several years. She is a wonderful doctor. There is never a long wait to see her. She is very thorough and absolutely the most caring doctor I have ever had. I never feel rushed and she truly cares about your entire well being. I started to see her when I went thru a very tough period in my life. It continued for a few years and she always made herself available to me whenever I needed her. I HIGHLY recommend her.
