dr Aquino is a great doctor. she is very concerned with all of your wellbeing. I had a serious health issue, an abnormal low platelet count which showed up on routine blood work. she called the following morning before nine am and already had an appointment for that same day with a hematologist. she followed me through the illness for years. through all the treatments, pneumonia etc. I feel that I am the luckiest person to have her as my doctor.

Clinic has improved efficiency significantly since my last visit a few years back.
Apr 9, 2019
I prefer to have eye contact with my provider rather than having her attention on her computer
Apr 9, 2019
I had to ask the questions in order to get the information that I felt she should be giving me. in addition I was unhappy that the records that were sent from my previous doctor twice actually we're not available
Apr 8, 2019
Very friendly and easy to talk to the doctor. But I didn't get a thorough explanation of a particular concern, nor an explanation of the limited lab requests. Because it took so long to get the appointment, I think there is too much time between certain tests. When I called back with questions, I did receive a better explanation from the nurse.

Dr. Aquino is the best doctor I have had in the past 25 years. She discovered a condition that was overlooked by all of the doctors I met with in North Carolina. Extremely proficient, professional in her attention to detail, and decisive. I am extremely confident in her care. Even the pharmacist at CVS in Bluffton commented to me about her good reputation as a physician.
