Years in Practice: 24 years
Practices In: Elmhurst, Hinsdale
Patients Seen: Children

I have been a com­mu­ni­ty pedi­a­tri­cian for over 20 years at the same prac­tice sub­ur­ban Chica­go. I try very hard to be respon­sive to my patients, answer­ing every ques­tion by the end of the day. My gen­er­al phi­los­o­phy is that the body gen­er­al­ly knows best what to do, and the physi­cian’s role is to rec­og­nize when it is not work­ing prop­er­ly and stay out of the way when it is.

"Dr. Pont listened to my concerns, explained his assessment of my daughter's injury, and spoke to me about follow-up action. He was extremely helpful in communicating with me by phone when ordering an X-ray (he called me within five minutes of receiving the message that I was attempting to contact him) and called me to communicate the results before I even left the Hinsdale location."

"We love Dr. Pont, and think that he is great; however, we have been with him for 2 years and about 20 visits and one pretty serious issues and and every time we come in I feel that he does not know who we are and while we have such loyalty to him I feel that we are just a patient. The other piece of feedback is that he is great at staying calm and not creating anxiety in perants but some times I wish I knew to have a little more concern about certain situations and how serious things are."
