06/07/13 5 5 5 5 In 1992, I was bitten on my left foot by a Brown Recluse Spider in Orlando,The wound was open and very,very very, painful. I had Ins. & I was treated by 14 different doctors. When they all gave up and decide it was time to Amputate my leg. I came to my parents home, here in Port Charlotte for Easter. (* GOD* SENT A ANGEL TO THE DINNER WHERE WE WERE EATING, WHO I MET her ONLY ONCE,SHE KNEW & CALLED DR. ASPERILLA ON EASTER *) The next day , Monday, I met Dr. Asperilla & he touched my leg and said Yes, your leg is highly infected & he said I am going to heal it ! & He set me up on Vancomycin 2000mgs. no other doctor in Orlando knew to use that & in 1 day my foot went from deep purple to light pink. He made my Ins. pay for it & sent me back to Orlando with his medicine & in 2 wks. I was completely HEALED & I put a shoe on for the first time in 2 yrs. July 4,1994. MY PRAISE GOES OUT TO DOCTOR MARK ASPERILLA. THANK YOU , THANK YOU LOVE STEPHEN VALLILLO  Respond

29/06/12 3 3 3 3 I saw Dr.A 1999-2004. He felt there was nothing more he could do for me after 2 failed interferon therapies.I need my records to apply for a clinical trial.I am stage 4. His office today informed me they shredded my records as they were 7yrs old. I now have no hope of a clinical trial. I thought records this important would be kept indefinately as they may be a matter of great importance later in life such as now. Feeling sad and frustrated.  Respond

03/10/11 2 4 5 5 Dr Asperilla is a highly intelligent doctor who goes way beyond to help people. He is very professional and caring. He diagnosed my Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue. He also found a doctor to help me when I was having severe stomach problems. He even met me at the Er several times to check on me. But if I had to deal with his staff all the time, I would have a hard decision because they can be very unhelpful at times and downright rude. I have needed paperwork filled out for my job and I always have to get on them about it. I have had one of the nurses be very rude to me to the point I was in tears. Now they are ok with me if I don't need anything.
