Verified Patient Reviews
I have never been happier with any other primary care doctor. I've recommended Dr. Pudol's office to both family and friends and those who have seen him all say the same. I moved to Riverview about a year ago and I've tried to find another primary care doctor closer to me but none even come close to providing the quality of care I get at Dr. Pudol's office. It's worth every minute of the 2-hour round trip to remain his patient.
Great experience for both my husband and I needing to find a new Doctor..
This is the most unprofessional and offensive office staff I have ever encountered.
Best appointment I've had
Will definitely keep him as my PCP
He was really personable and helpful.
Dr. Pudol is a great Dr. Very personable and knowledgeable.
Well rounded and knowledgeable physician who combines different techniques to best treat the patient. Made us feel at ease the entire time we were there. Best thing about him is his avoidance of prescription drugs unless absolutely necessary.
Was the easiest and most comfortable Drs visit I've ever had! Dr Pudol was great about listening to what I had to say and the office staff was very friendly and effiecent. Would highly recommend visiting this office
He is great. Seems to have really good insight. Different from most doctors I have visited in a good way
Some of the equipment struck me as a bit antiquated. For example, the scale was just a bathroom scale like I have at home. I suppose it does the job but it seemed odd to me. Dr. Pudol was nice and explained everything thoroughly. Originally my appointment was booked for Memorial Day. I arrived only to find the office closed. I was in such pain, I had to go to Urgent Care which was more expensive. Zocdoc staff were most apologetic for the mistake, while the doctor's office was not so much. Dr. Pudol's office is near my home. They take my insurance and they seem competent overall. Thus I have made a follow up appointment.
Nice doc. Zocdoc was way off in the matter of distance from my home but i needed meds urgently. Am feeling better now so thanks to the doc.
Good visit. He listens.
Very nice, very casual I have been looking for a new doctor and think I've found one.
I really appreciate Dr. Chris and his staff. He values your time which I appreciate. I got my issue resolved and was on my way quickly. Thanks.
Dr. Pudol is awesome! I told him what was going on and he knew exactly what was needed. He was clear in explaining my situation. I recommend him. Besides that I had issues with one staff member who was extremely disrespectful. Instead of calling my name to get paperwork filled out she whistled to get my attention, as if I was some type of animal. She is no asset to his business! If it wasn't for her I would have been more likely to come back.
Friendly staff and knowledgeable, caring, and professional Doctor such as Dr. Chris Pudol.
Short and sweet. Doctor Granny's addresseD all my problems in 1 visit. Very reputable.
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Pudol. I was impressed with his direct and professional manner. He asked many pertinent questions and answered all of my concerns.
Doc is very professional. He listens and asks questions about my condition. The office staff is fabulous.
Very positive, a excellent Doctor
When you have a new primary, it takes some time to adjust and get used to them. Dr. Pudol has made me feel so comfortable and is very efficient.never waited more than 5 mins in the waiting room. visits may be quick, but he makes sure to address all issues with immediate resolutions! who wants to be at a docs office all day anyways?
Dr. Pudol is great. I'm glad I found my doctor in Tampa
I'm a new patient to Dr. Pudol and so far I'm very pleased!
Very unorganized and unsanitary. Office staff have no clue what there talking about and the Dr looked at me like she was out of it. Didn't answer all of our questions, basically a huge waist of 2 hours! I would NEVER go back!!!!!
Great Doctor! Knowledgable & great bed side manner.
His staff was very friendly and quick with servicing.
I saw Dr. Pudol for acupuncture and Craniosacral therapy for chronic pain relief. As usual, he was professional, thorough and took the time to discuss any medical concerns I had. I make my appointments on ZocDoc, which is the easiest way to be seen by appointment (vs. 'walking in.') However it iS nice to have the ability to be seen as a walk-in when when the need arises. I only wish his office was open on Tuesdays - my usual unlucky day for medical crises!
I arrived a few minutes early because it was a new patient and was in the waiting room for about an hour and 15 minutes. Then when I got called in I was sitting down for about 10 minutes until they took my weight and blood pressure and then I was put in a room where I waited probably 20 minutes until seeing the doctor. My visit with the doctor was very short but my problem was solved and I can't complain to much.
He was very friendly. Listened to what I had to say!
It was a great visit, he was able to diagnosis me right away and was able to assist with my medical needs. Very knowledgeable and listened.
I wish he would have refilled my diuretic. For some inexplicable reason, he did not, even though my hands, face and ankles are visibly swollen and it was an incredibly lose dose to begin with. My kidney function is normal. So.....it's hormonal, as I am close to menopause. I'm just frustrated with everything. My husband and I are not happy with his office staff and they do seem very cold and uncaring. Husband recently went for an appointment that was a scheduled follow up from an allergic reaction to ciprofloxin and they crossed his name off the list, made him wait for an eternity (and he checked in early) and everyone else was seen who were waiting but they failed to log him in and he was never seen. He left. It's just ridiculous that there are about 5 office staff and they are cold as ice and extremely busy and unapologetic when something goes wrong. We are seriously considered finding a new pcp.
Dr. Pudol, is very approachable. I had some questions for him, and he took the time to answer them without talking down to me. Some doctors are so busy, they spend the entire time typing into the computer. He is not like that, very nice, I would definitely recommend him.
I was very impressed with a doctor who takes ChampVA, could be my primary care doctor, is an acupuncturist and asked me if I needed any blood test and when I told him yes - he listened and not only did the test that I requested but added more as well - drew blood right there in the office.
I absolutely love Dr. Pudol, he's very attentive, he always remembers details about my life and he's extremely easy to talk to.
In and out. Professional. Down to earth. Have a follow up in 48 h!!!!
Dr. Pudol was very kind and humorous. The only suggestion that I would make is for the pre doctor consultation to be done in a private room. Describing symptoms right next to the secretaries' desk was a little awkward.
Dr. Pudol has great bedside manners and is easy to talk to.
He was very engaging and took time with me explaining and answering my questions and concerns. Also very knowledgable. Staff was very nice and polite.
Had a good first visit
Dr Pudal is amazing.. Laurens to everything you have to say and answers any questions..
I always have a great visit with this office. The staff are very friendly and respectful. I rarely have a wait time. Dr. Pudol is very friendly, attentive and thorough. I love that this is a small practice yet, they seem to manage patient time slots effectively. The early and late Hours are also great. This is definitely a practice with their patients in mind!
I haven't seen a primary care doctor in ten years so naturally I had a ton of anxiety. The staff and Dr. Chris made me feel very comfortable.
I am very pleased with the capability to input my information on-line before coming to my appointment. The staff were curteous, professional, and attentive. Dr. Pudol is a warm and caring professional whom I feel will have my problems addressed in no time!
I love his staff, very friendly, professional, they are quick in settling us in and taking our vital signs. Doctor asks great questions, attentive in us. Wonderful Doctor. Very Professional.
It was comfortable. .he was human and that's always a good thing
Friendly staff, great physician
Dr Chris was awesome.... Listened to me and gave great feedback. No wishy-washy... Straight to the point. In and out very quickly..
He is a very good doctor. i recommend him, even though, his staff changes often and some of them are awful.
I will visit again
Very nice. Today was my first visit to his office and it was a great experience. The girls are very sweet and helpful.
Not a bad visit for the first try. I'll be back.
I suffer from 2 chronic illnesses; one which causes considerable nerve pain in my foot/lower leg. Medications do little to help alleviate my pain, but after acupuncture and Craniosacral therapy by Dr. Pudol, my pain level always drops from a 7-8 to a manageable 3-5. I only wish I could see him 3x a week! Dr. Pudol's bedside manner and knowledge of medications, and a wide range of health conditions is also quite impressive!
Dr.Chris is amazing!! Do yourself a favor and go see him!
Great Doctor, I love his staff and he is very attentive. He doesn't rush you and listens to all your concerns answers your questions. Everyone is very friendly as well. I have been seeing him since January because of an insurance change I could no longer go to my original Dr. Dr. Pudols office is only about a mile from my house. He even put in an order for my daughters school fund raiser. : )
Always awesome service
Great team at dr pudol office
Dr Pudol is wonderful. He always have appointments and i never have to wait much to see him. He is very polite and holistic..
Very efficient, staff was nice. Great hours. He seems to care and was thorough.
He is wonderful puts you at ease and asks the right questions , love this doctor!
Dr. Pudol is very nice and personable. He payed full attention to me when I was explaining my illness and didn't rush me out like I have experienced before at other Dr's . His staff are very polite and friendly. I had to switch primary care Dr's due to insurance changing, and will be making him my primary care Dr. his office is very close to my house which makes it an easier choice to switch to him.
Not pleased with the staff and the doctor.
Staff was friendly and fast and doctor is really nice and knowledgable
My experience at this office was great for my first time. The whole staff was very nice and attentive. I've been searching for a primary doctor in Tampa and I finally found a good one.
It was very good
Dr. Pudol is very professional and puts his patients at ease. I have recommended him to family members and friends, alike.
I was a great experience he understood me when I told him how my medicine made me feel, so he prescribed another one for me. Thank you Dr. Podul
He was very personable and understanding. Staff was friend.
It's hard to find a doctor who is well versed in western and alternative medicine and the benefits and side effects of prescription medicine. When necessary, Dr. Pudol knows what and when to prescribed RX medication; if there is a more holistic alternative, and the patient wants to try that route, Dr. Pudol is trained in acupuncture, cranio sacral therapy and osteopathy as well as general family practice medicine. Both my husband and I see dr. Pudol as our primary care physician and always feel we get the best care. Dr. Pudol also listens, and asks if his patients have any questions before they leave his office.
It is always fast, pleasant and very attentive. I love his office staff, and we love Dr. Pudol.
Dr Chris is awesome. His staff however they are nice but it just seems like they dont care anymore.
Very informative. Would definitely recommend.
Dr. Pudol (aka Dr. Chris to his patients) always takes time to listen and makes me feel like I'm the only patient he's seeing even when the clinic is busy. He's very knowledgeable about both Western and Eastern/holistic medicine. I have a rare chronic condition, which many doctors are not well informed/educated about. But Dr. Chris knows more than all the pain specialists and internists I've seen thru the years put together. He talks to his patients like they're family and is one of the most compassionate doctors I know. We just need to clone him so there are more docs like Dr Chris! ??
He is awesome
Dr Pudol is an excellent doctor.
Very good! He is a very nice person and has a good personality.
Knowledgable and smart!!! Kind hearted and does well with all my issues and my childrens. He is a keeper!
Office dirty, nurses not trained
I didn't feel rushed and most of all the doctor LISTENS!!!!!!!!!!! First visit awesome
He was very courteous and thorough. Asked me very detailed questions and had all the answers I needed.
I felt like Dr. Chris was very nice, listened to me, and answered my questions in an easy to understand and pleasant way. The office staff were also very friendly.
He seemed like he was in a hurry, but he was very friendly and addressed everything I presented to him. His staff was kind, efficient and I didn't wait longer than 10 minutes. I'm definitely making him my primary care doctor!
He was brief and to the point, I'm guessing the office was about to close and there were other patients to be attended to. Nonetheless, he was very professional and addressed all of my concerns. Been a while since I felt comfortable with a male doctor. He was awesome!
it went well for my first vist. just moved to FL. and i found him on zocdoc web site and i am very happy with my vist.
What a super doctor! I thought I was a crap shoot, but leaving the pediatrican we did, we had nothing to lose! WOW! So glad to have found him! He actually listens to a parents concerns. He was very though with instructions and what to expect with my child's treatment!
His medicine for my burn worked excellent! Thank you!
I was extremely pleased with the care given to me today. A very warm and pleasant office and the staff and doctor were exceptional.
Dr. Pudol is a great doctor. However, the people he has working in the front office are incompetent. They never told me that he didn't take my insurance, so now they are trying to say I owe them a large amount. I never received a bill and when asking if they sent out they told me the wrong address. I have not gone back to him and it is sad because he is great but his front office, especially Rose needs to be fired or trained better.
I loved Dr. Chris and the only reason it took so long for me to get in was because I was from out of town and it took longer for the office to verify my insurance. If I lived in Tampa, I would tell everyone to go to Dr. Chris Pudol,Do.
Great doctor, makes you feel very comfortable, attentive staff. He's open late which is extremely convenient for someone who works a 9-5 like myself.
Like dr pudal because he listens to the patient and also applys alternative medical options.
Love this Doc so easy to talk to such a gentleman
Dr. Pudol is very professional and knowledgeable. He has a great bedside manner and takes his time with his patients.
I loved it and will be back
Dr. Pudol treats his patients like family members. You may go in with concerns, pain or other issues and leave his office feeling lighter and well-cared for by a highly skilled, warm professional D.O. The ease of appt scheduling, with email confirmations and appt reminders via ZocDoc is an added plus. Both my husband and I see Dr. Chris as our Primary Care Physician.
He's really attentive, thorough, and his staff are friendly and helpful. He goes the extra mile to get you better and is comfortable with alternative treatments like acupuncture, which really helped my migraines. I'd recommend him to anyone!
Staff was attentive, Doctor was organized and listened,
Excellent, took the time to explain everything clearly.
Dr. Chris and his staff are very kind, professional and understanding. Dr. Chris is a good listener and I feel he really cares about his patients needs and concerns.
Excellent Dr. and great staff. Very fast check in and covered ALL of my issues in one visit!!
Dr. Chris is great. I am changing him to my primary. He is so down to earth. He listened to my concerns and addressed each one. He wears scrubs....like the rest of his staff. He does not act snobbish at all. Today was the first time I seen him and on my way out he talked to me again double checking if i had any questions and said if the script he gave me was going to be to expensive all I have to do is call his office and they will call in something cheaper for me. Even tho he was seeing about 3 other patients at the same time as me...when he stopped to check with me as I was checking out of his office he called me by my first name ( and he didnt have my chart in his hand ). I dont know why but that meant alot to me. He tells you to call him Dr. Chris and gives you a cute way to remember how to say his last name if you should need it. His staff was excellent also. I am not one for needles, but the nurse who took my blood was fantastic and so friendly. I didnt even feel the needle go in. I dont know if its because she is just that good...or the fact that her chatting with me took my mind off of it. Either way they were all great. His office is out of the way for me but it is so worth the drive.
Dr. Cristopher Pudol is one of the finest doctors this family has ever been under. His memory alone is astounding. He takes care of my husband and I (both 57), our Son (33), my Mom (88) and my Brother 62. He is compassionate, extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of our medical needs, never hesitates to refer you to a Specialist as needed and endears himself to you. I wish everyone could have a Doctor like "Dr. Chris" and receive the proper medical care they deserve.
Dr. Chris is awesome. I was in and out quickly.
More than pleased. I took my teenage son and he made him feel comfortable right away. Great doctor. Traveled from Hernando county for this office visit and will continue to do so.
Always a great experience Dr Pudol always takes his time and answers your questions. He seems to really care
He did not examine the patient did not have f/u with lab results had to be reminded to look for labs and other results all he did was ask what he wanted in terms of refills wrote it down and send us off
he was so good and professional I switched to him as my primary.
Quick, very relax and easy going.
It was an excellent experience. I really liked Dr. Chris and his staff, very friendly, and knowledgeable. The waiting time could have been less, but overall it was a very good experience.
Not a great dr at all. Leaves the treatment up to the patient. I want a doctor that actually has answers.
He was great. He took his time and listened. The staff is awesome. I think he is going to be my regular doctor for now on.
Doctor Pudol is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He was very knowledgeable and seemed actually concerned for my health. His office staff is also top knotch. I was seen right away and they all were really nice. Over all I rate them all exemplary.
He was ver nice, concerning and looks to get an answer
He is a wonderful man very easy to talk to!
Dr. Chris is the best! He is really concerned how the pt feels and not about the money. I never wait in the waiting room more than 5 min and always get the appt I need.
If you want an occasional walk in clinic then Dr. Pudol is your guy. Almost all the reviews on zocdoc are first time patients. If you want to see more candid reviews look him up on Angie's List. I had seen Dr. Pudol since October 2013. In that time he only continued refilling meds prescribed by my previous doctor. He did nothing to address my ongoing complaints. A couple of months after first seeing Dr. Pudol I had issues with my insurance which required them to write referrals to two specialists for physical therapy and pain relief so I could continue my treatment. I got the insurance taken care of in about 90 days. At the end of the 90 days they finally got a referral for pain management. They NEVER got it right for physical therapy. But during those 90 days I was unable to continue my treatment which set me back quite a bit. He also would make mistakes when writing scripts When I called to alert them and ask to call the pharmacy they would say they would. Days would go by and then they say it is best if I come in the office and pick up the new script. This last occurrence I called twice on Monday and let them know of a problem and asked that they call the pharmacy because I would be out of town until Thursday night and on vacation the next Saturday. I called again on Friday. On the second call Friday at 4:45 PM they acted like they knew nothing about my problem and asked all the information again. When I asked how we can get it resolved they suggested I come in the office. When I got mad they finally called the pharmacy and I had the RX in less then an hour. But they also sent me a letter telling me I was no longer welcome.
Excellent Doctor, was able to diagnose my illness quick as lightning and prescribe me the appropriate medication to cure my Tonsillitis. I recommend Doctor Chris to all.
very relaxed very low key dr very respectful , knowlegeable
Very friendly staff. Dr. Pudol is a great listener and puts you at ease.
Dr Chris Pudol is a great, awesome Dr! The office staff is nice but they are not professional or confidential at all.
My appointment, which included craniosacral and acupuncture therapy, went very well, due to the competency, training and professionalism I always receive from Dr. Pudol. I have recommended him to friends who are looking for a physician well versed in traditional Western medicine as well as complementary/alternative holistic treatments for treating patients with chronic diseases.
Excellent professional skills and ability to talk to the patient. Great listener.
Always makes his patients feel like they're the only patient he's seeing that day, when it's certainly not the case. Dr. Pudol is a gifted man of healing. So happy to have found him. He has an excellent staff as well.
I would recommend Dr. Pudol to anyone who is looking for a doctor who cares for the patient as he would a friend or family member. He is very knowledgeable in many areas of medicine, and listens carefully to his patient's needs and works WITH them to attain their health and wellness goals. His staff are all friendly and courteous. He is simply a patient, caring person to everyone he interacts with. I forget about my health problems after each timeI see Dr. Pudol.
In and out super fast. The DR is great and makes you feel very comfortable.
I saw Dr. Pudal for symptoms related to two chronic, incurable illnesses I have. He is kind, caring, professional and also a great acupuncture dr. I only wish I had found him sooner! Feeling great after just one appt/treatment.
Very good and he cares about his patients
Very nice Dr. made me feel very comfortable!
Well, it was as good as a visit can be to a medical appointment. I was impressed with the interaction I received from the staff and Dr. Pudol. I don't really know how long I waited. Probably only about five minutes past my scheduled appointment. I went a few minutes early to make sure the paperwork was all complete. I like that Dr. Pudol uses both traditional and holistic medicine.
Dr. Pudol was The Best Dr I have been to in the State of Florida. He Did Not order unnecessary tests (as I have experienced with every other physician I have seen so far). He was genuinely concerned with my physical health. He stayed on point, listened to me when I spoke and answered my questions regarding my condition & medications thoroughly.
I am just Glad I was referred to his office! He is always pleasant and professional.
Love him and everyone in the office.
Dr. Pudol was amazing! Took his time with us and didn't feel like we were rushed out the door for his next appointment. Highly Recommend Dr. Pudol if you are searching for a new Physician!!!
It was great. H e takes his time . Great bedside manner. Would recommend him to everybody.
Wonderful physician, very thoughtful, thorough, knowledgeable, and intelligent. The short wait was an insurance issue and not the fault of the doctor or the staff.
Dr.Pudol was amazing!!!! I definitely would recommend him. He is very caring and attentive not to mention his staff were very friendly and welcoming.
Very clear and to the point, easy to understand. Very friendly and positive.
He truly cares about his patients.
He was born to do what he does!!! Wouldnt go anywhere else!!Highly reccomended!!!
Dr. Pudol was very professional and pleasant. He certainly knows his medicine and was quite helpful with explanations of medical terms and symptoms relating to my issue. I felt he was completely thorough and proactive. Additionally his office staff were friendly, kind and helpful. I will be definitely be seeing him again.
Good staff and Dr
I thought Dr. Pudol was great! I went to him after seeing another doctor who didin't listen to what I was telling him and the medicinde that he prescribed didn't work. Dr. Pudol listened to me and gave me the proper medicine to heal my sickness.I really like the fact that Dr. Pudol takes a holistic approach to medicine, but prescibes medication when that is the best option.
As always - Dr. Pudol is an amazing Doctor.
Very professional, very knowledgeable and actually spent some time with me to help figure everything out, awesome!!!
My visit was great.staff very friendly.dr.pudol was professional and friendly.
Very good visit. explained blood results, made recommendations, kept asking if there was anything else I was concerned about or if I needed anything
Always a good visit. Even the blood work was "almost" painless.
Seemed friendly and professional
Doctor Pudol knows what he's doing, his office staff is beyond useless. Called to book an emergency appointment during their normal office hours and got no response, so I used Zocdoc. The office accepted my appointment and the morning of called to inform me that Dr. Pudol is out of town till, "probably November" and the NP can't write my prescription. Terrible service. If the doctor is out of town, don't accept the appointment.
Unfortunately I couldn't get all my issues resolved as I hoped to but Dr. Pudol did all he was trained and allowed to do.
I saw Dr. Tanus and she was professional, caring, attentive thus creating a very relaxing visit. I will continue to have her as my primary physican.
I appreciate the way that Dr. Pudol totally deals with the medical issues on hand, enquires about my family's health for cross-correlation and then even manages to share a little information about himself; a true professional with strong people skills!
Great doctor but his staff are not very organized when medical transcripts need to be faxed.
Dr. Pudol is an amazing doctor. He is professional, warm and caring, extremely knowledgeable, and embodies what a physician should be. He treats my entire family ages 31 - 86. He truly has your best interests at heart. He treats the body, mind and soul - he really listens to your health issues and never hesitates to recommend additional testing or whatever else is needed to ensure you are getting the best care possible. I highly recommend Dr. Pudol and have many times and will continue to do so.
First visit, satisfied. Only complaint is that they had a nurse first day and she couldnt draw my blood, after first attempted the other nurse took over and was great. Very nice doctor.
I absolutely love this doctor! i go in thinking i have symptoms of one thing and he is testing me on 4, my last doctor would only do what i thought needed to be done rather than checking other possible problems that relate to the symptoms.I love the fact that they have before and after hour appointments and weekends as well. They also do blood work right in the office so I don't have to go anywhere else; along with many other things like acupuncture. I highly recommend this doctor by far!
