All the staff at Dr. Poole's office are exceptional. I have been seeing Dr. Poole for at lease five years and consistently they impress me with there professionalism. Unfortunately, I do have skin challenges of different levels and so I haveto visit the office every six months. My point is this visit isn't necessarily always a pleasant experience from a medical standpoint. However, The receptionist, Dr. Poole's assistant Heidi, and everyone else are always very nice and professional. I'd highly recommend this doctor and his office staff.

He is an excellent doctor, probably one of the best in town, however they have an office policy that many do not agree. They request to have a Credit Card on file. We have not seen this at any other doctoroffice nor clinic. It is risky in case someone copies the card information, or the data is stolen from the office files.

I like this doctor, he is very thourough and knoledgeable. Also very pleasant. But they have a not good office policy to get your credit card on file. I do not approve this and maybe I will not be able toreturn to this doctor. Having a credit card details in an office file is not a good practice and with all the issues about stealing data or files, it make it dangerous. I wish they change this procedure to be able to keep recommending this physician.I do not feel comfortable leaving a credit card number in the office.

Dr. Poole came highly recommended so I had no doubt that my experience would be wonderful. My daughter and I were placed into the exam room pretty quickly. The wait time wasn't bad at all. It was his bedside manner thatwas awful. He came in and didn't introduce himself to me or my daughter (who was apprehensive already because she was seeing a male Dr.). His examination was extremely fast. I asked two questions, mainly because he was so quick with me; I didn't feel comfortable asking another one. He prescribed very expensive medication, which I was told if they were high based on my insurance coverage, he would prescribe something else. When I went to the pharmacy, the man working behind the counter was just as bad. He was very quick (I couldn't even follow what he was saying) and arrogant. I am well aware of Dr. Poole's expertise, but it doesn't give a physician the right to be so EXTREMELY dismissive to a patient, nor the family who is with the patient. My daughter does not feel any better about her situation and Dr. Poole didn't put her at ease in any way. In the future, if Dr. Poole has a bad day or something happens prior to coming into the exam room (which I hope that is all it was), he should take a step back, re-focus and then enter a patient's room.

The office was very professional. Dr. Poole verified everything I had talked with the assistant about and discussed causes and procedure before doing anything. I also appreciated that he took the time to discuss another issue separate fromwhat I came in for. My only complaint was the wait time in the room before the doctor came in, but he did not feel rushed once getting to me.
