Dr. Emilia Aponte is Board-certified in Family Medicine. Bilingual in both English and Spanish, she believes that the key to improving health and instilling change begins with a doctor-patient relationship centered primarily around trust, positive reinforcement, encouragement, and patience. She is a firm believer in ‘slow and steady wins the race’ when it comes to improving health and quality of life. What she loves most about her patients and practicing medicine is the bond that she forms, which is deeply rooted in trust. Prior to joining R-Health by Everside, Dr. Aponte was a physician at Concentra Urgent Care.
I believe that as humans we are always striving to enjoy everything that life has to offer while staying healthy in the process, and this balance is what I work towards every day with my patients. I am a firm believer that the doctor-patient relationship should always start first with listening to my patient’s needs, wants and goals. Only then can we set expectations and work towards change. I find that if we listen more as providers, our patients will tell us what they need and how we can achieve it together. I believe in creating a partnership, where I can utilize my skills and use the tools given to me to help guide and influence a healthier lifestyle.

IN YOUR FREE TIME
I love to go jogging and strive to run a further distance each time. I enjoy working out in the gym, as well as playing pick-up basketball. My dog Louie is my first baby so I love to take him everywhere I can. I am very family oriented and spend most of my free time visiting and making plans with family.
I have always loved playing competitive sports growing up. I was given a scholarship to play Division 2 college basketball, and to this day I still hold my high school’s record for most points ever scored in girls basketball with 1,455 points! I was also fortunate enough to be inducted into my high school’s hall of fame for basketball.
