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 mentionsome things that have been troubling me but i got my endoscopy, which is much more important.

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.

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 hadto 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!

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 Drbut 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.

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'tget that opportunity because everything happened in such blur.

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!
