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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
