WORST doctors office ever! the staff is so RUDE, spoke with a girl Bianca to schedule my daughters wellness appointment and she told me the system was in her terms "locked" due to missed appointments, cancellations, and reschedules. Which i have never cancelled or missed an appointment and that she didnt know when the system would be available to give her access to schedule, pretty much scripting or sugar coating that i would have to find a different doctor for my child, which in the e...view morend she said that. I was in shock that she didnt even try to figure out why the system gave that "message" meaning that she really doesnt care about the patients and she really shouldnt work there if she has a careless attitude. As far as scheduling an appointment because my daughter had a bad fever, really horrible cough, and runny eyes, i was told to take her to the ER because they couldnt do anything about it. What kind of doctors office is this?! DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN HERE IF YOU WANT ACTUAL CARE TO TAKE PLACE FOR THEM. THis doctor and has staff should be put out of business and join a circus, because thats what they are a joke to healthcare and children's health!!!view lessShare Review
I selected dr. adetona to be my daughters pcp. I called about a month ago to bring her in for pink eye and they told me that they couldn't see her till five days out because she was a new pt. it was a five min appt! I already diagnosed her just needed a dr script!! I understand not making new patient appointments on the same day so I asked if I could bring her in the following day and they flat out told me no! I ended up taking her to the er. Then I tried again this week to set her up ...view morean appt due to she had a low grade fever. they advised me to go to the er. I asked if she could be seen at all and they pretty much refused to see my daughter. they told me the only way they would treat her is with a follow up from the er! I then asked if I could set up an establish patient care appointment so I wouldn't have this problem again in the future, and once more they told me no. that they don't have that type of appointment they only have sick visits and wellness visits! I was trying to initially set up a sick visit because she has already had a wellness check up this is! worst experience ever! they obviously do not care!view lessShare Review
Really bad experience with front desk and office manager, they are not professional and clerk Nicky is rude. Right when we arrived for our appt they told us they had a problem with my insurance and dr can't see us, and when i complained, office manager basically told me without apologies that it was my fault because i did not verify my insurance before coming to the office....never in my life i had to do this with appts for me or my kids, the dr offices do this for you....too bad!

So I took my daughter in to get seen because she was extremely congested and was gasping and gagging for air. "Dr" adetona came into the room to take a look at her, he made me feel like I was wasting his precious time first off then as I continued to explain to him her symptoms he would cut me off and say that I was not suctioning out her boogers and I was! Then he suctioned out her boogers using saline and said to me "THERE! YOU SEE MOM THAT'S ALL YOU NEEDED TO DO!" He didn't test her...view more for the flu or rsv and I KNEW she had something more I know my daughter and for him not to test her for the flu or rsv rubbed me the wrong way. He then told me that it had to run its corse and to continue to give her tylenol and motrin and that within time and tlc she'll be better.....BULL!! I went to urgent care 2 days later and she tested positive for the flu AND had to be admitted to the hospital. If he was the so called "Dr." He would have seen something was wrong with her from the first look at her. Now my daughter is in the hospital going through breathing treatments and under hospital observation. WARNING!! DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS TO THIS SO CALLED DR. Now my daughter is miserable and in the hospital all because I listened to his bullview lessShare Review
My daughter loves Dr. Adetona. She takes her time with the kids as well as explaining to the kids the importance of taking care of their teeth. This is the only pediatric office that calls to wish the patients a Happy Birthday. I totally recommend Practical Approach Dentistry!!!!!!!Share Review
HAVING MOVED TO SAN ANTONIO A FEW MONTHS AGO WAS NOT AN EASY TRANSITION, BUT FINDING A PEDIATRICIAN AND DENTIST FOR MY BOYS WAS WHAT WORRIED ME THE MOST. WE FOUND OUT ABOUT PRACTICAL APPROACH PEDIATRICS AND PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY AND I ASSURE YOU IT WAS BY FAR THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER. MY BOYS ENJOYED THEIR VISITS WITH BOTH THE DOCTORS AND EVEN TOLD OUR RELATIVES ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE AT THE CLINIC. I ADMIRED THE FACT THAT THE DOCTORS AND STAFF EXPLAINED TO MY BOY...view moreS WHAT PROCEDURES/TREATMENTS THEY WERE GOING TO PERFORM ON THEM (ONE EXAMPLE: VITALS - MY BOYS WERE GETTING READY TO CRY WHEN IT WAS EXPLAINED TO THEM THAT THE CUFF WAS JUST GOING TO CHECK THEIR MUSCLES…I KNOW THAT IS NOT TRUE BUT TO A 4 YEAR OLD CHILD THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE). NOW I DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT MY BOYS BEING AFRAID OF GOING FOR ANOTHER VISIT.
**DR. (MR) ADETONA- IF IT WERE UP TO MY BOYS THEY WOULD GO VISIT YOU EVERYDAY FOR MINOR BUMPS AND BRUISES THAT THEY GET. THANK YOU FOR MAKING SURE THAT MY BOYS STAY HEALTHY.
**DR. (MRS) ADETONA- MY BOYS LOVE YOUR HUGS WHEN THEY SEE YOU. THANK YOU FOR EXPLAINING TO THEM (AND MYSELF) THE IMPORTANCE OF DENTAL HYGIENE, THEY REMIND ME TO MAKE SURE TO BRUSH THEIR TEETH PROPERLY.
**STAFF- I HAVE NEVER MET SUCH FRIENDLY, CONSIDERATE AND CARING INDIVIDUALS. THANK YOU FOR HELPING CARE FOR MY BOYS AND KEEPING ONE OCCUPIED WHILE THE OTHER IS GETTING THEIR VACCINES OR BLOOD DRAWN.
**I COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER EXPERIENCE AND SUCH LOVING AND CARING INDIVIDUALS AS EACH ONE OF YOU.**view less
Don't take your child here. The sound of terror in my little girls screams still echo in my mind. This dentist is brutal; there is no way she should work on children. She pulled out teeth that were not numbed by anesthetic by not waiting long enough for it to work (she pulled the teeth right after the shot, which by the way, she also gives in a fast and brutal way, instead of slowly like a true pediatric dentist would). She pulled two crowns that didn't need to be pulled, mistaking the...view more 6 year molars for abscesses. After the debacle we purchased the spacers that still needed to be placed and went back to our old dentist. Understand that we had changed dentists because we changed insurance. Our experience here was so bad we were willing to pay out of pocket to go back to our old dentist and ignored the $1100 we had already paid to have the entire procedure. Even after we explained how bad we felt, their office was still giving us a hard time, taking a week to FAX a form we needed, even after multiple calls. We trusted this dentist with our child, based on her "pediatric" background and she let us down terribly. Ignore this review at your peril; you can never take a horrible dental experience back after your child has been traumatized.view lessShare Review
The doctors are wonderful here and very considerate staff. Dont let anyone tell you otherwise. The doctors show true concern for your children and are very gracious. They made my son and daughter feel very comfortable every time we go. And how wonderful to take care of dental and checkups at once! I recommend to all my friends and families that i work with.Share Review
