Very professional and caring Doctor
Excelente atención personal agradable
Very quick, straight to the point and had everything I needed within five minutes.
He is an excellent and professional doctor. I like that he care for his patients and take very serious the patient's concern.
Not enough tI ever with the patient.
Very satisfied with trusting Dr Pou with my medical needs
It was satisfactory. I told me what I have to do.
His visits are no more than 5 min, would be nice if he spent more time with patient and explains results etc...
Fast but satisfactory visit.
Quick follow up visit but straight to the point he explained my lab results and with that scheduled an endoscopy right away hopefully everything goes well. So far No complaints very professional doctor and even though he seems busy he does listen and asks questions.
Absolutely awful. I had an appointment time and had to wait 2.5 hours and he only spent 10 mins on my consultation. It was extremely rushed and I advise everyone to find another doctor
Doctor pou very efficient , fast services and good treatmen to the pacient excellent!!!!!!!!!!!
Very quick visit, dreary waiting area no tv could be updated the office, first visit so I'll need to see if he is the doctor for me since I have alt of stomach issues didn't really get to go into depth because he had like 50 patients waiting their turn ... Let's see
I think the visit was super quick despite the almost 2 hr wait. We were all given appointment times but it was all on a first come first serve basis. The appointment went by so quickly that I forgot to mention some things that have been troubling me but i got my endoscopy, which is much more important.
It was good.
He was running late however he didn't rush me out of the room to get to the next patient. He is a great listener and tries to get to the bottom of the issue and not just treat the symptoms.
Excellente professional .
Good. Too many patients, but he used the time perfectly. I'll recommend him.
I would never come back to this place again. The whole place feels dirty and unsanitary.I had to wait for over an hour and the Dr. only took 3 minutes to talk with me.
Fue muy favorable y placentera me escucho mis inquietudes y busco solución al malestar mil felicitaciones
Ver y good
The office open at 10 but the Dr comes in at 12!my appointment was at 12 but when I came in there were already 11 people ahead of me. After more than one of waiting I get to see the Dr but I barely have time to ask questions because he has a long line waiting outside. My visit was a waist of time. U want to see him make sure u come at 10 to sign your name and wait until he shows up at 12. Definitely not worth the time.
Very easy to talk to. Explained things multiple times and made it easy to understand what I needed to do.
the office was packed (about 25 patients) but he saw me on an emergency basis (which it was). Thank you Dr Pou
The doctor is very nice. Thank you
Muy buen medico.
He was great, fast and to the point. He performed an endoscopy on me, and the experience was great. The only issue I encountered once was for the follow up appointment. They sent me a late message stating the doctor had to leave early, and by the time I got to the office, no one was around. But the doctor did call me to follow up the next day, after I left an angry message. Aside from that time, my experience with Dr. Pou has been great!
Hace unos años le conozco, me encanta buen profesional e inspira confianza, lo recomienda 100?.
Me gustó respondió mis inquietudes acerca de mi problema.
Very quick and good service. I was certainly pleased. Thank you!
Doctor is too fast with patients.
Dr. Pou should take a certain amount of patients per day because when the doctor has alot of patients, the doctor can't dedicate time for the patient to ask questions for any concerns that client might have. I felt I didn't get that opportunity because everything happened in such blur.
Very Satisfied with Dr Pou.
My experience with the doc was great answered all my concerns. Also staff was very polite. Just recommended my cousin. Overall very satisfied compared to my last doc
Very professional and polite I would definilty recommend Dr Pou he showed concerns and he took his time with me.
The office is like a factory. They overbook and then you usually wait 60mins to see the doctor even if you have an appt and he spends 5-7mins with you if your lucky
Worth the wait- great doctor.
The wait was rediculous. He has over twenty chairs in his waiting room and they were filled for the two hours I waited. Every person waited for this long.
Besides waiting for an hour for the doctor to arrive, he took his time yet he didn't take all my time. Straight to the point and then I was out, good visit overall.
Amazing doctor and person. He was incredibly intelligent, helpful, compassionate, and very, very friendly. I recommend 100%. I visited his Washington Heights location-- down the road from an ivy league medical facility-- and he truly topped them by a mile. I'm so happy. Highly, highly recommend!
Dr. Pou is personable, professional and knowledgeable.
Waiting room was very packed. Made an appt online and still waited over an hour. Seems they like to overbook. The doctor moves quickly though while still giving you individual attention and the front desk is as helpful as they can be
Me gusto que contesto todas mis preguntas y más. El staff es súper atento y siempre motivados a ayudarme. A pesar que tuve que cancelar mi cita la primera vez fueron súper atentas para conmigo. Gracias
This office is like being in a 3rd-world country. I would never go back there.
