Review of Dr. Poore

- in Dubuque, IA |

My first meeting with Dr. Poore was to discuss reconstruction options for upcoming breast cancer surgery. He explained several options and listened and acted as though he had all the time in the world. That first day I knew i would be in good hands. Dr. Poore did reconstruction after my lumpectomy, and also an onco reduction on my other breast (so it would be same size). I ended up with an excellent aesthetic result and my scars are practically invisible. Dr. Poore is fantastic.

Review of Dr. King

- |

In 2012 I was attacked by a dog that removed over 90% of my upper lip, including the flesh below my nose. At 20 years old, I was terrified that I would spend the rest of my life with a severe facial deformity. However, Dr. King is an excellent surgeon who was extremely successful in performing my facial reconstruction. I look just as attractive as I did before the incident, and most people never even notice my small scar. I am extremely thankful for Dr. King!!! He preserved my life as I know it.

Review of Dr. Poore

-Illinois |

As a patient, Dr. Poore has exceeded all of my expectations. During my initial visit, he spent over an hour writing down & drawing out on paper while explaining thoroughly my medical situation and options. I immediately felt reassured and in the right place because of Dr. Poore's positive demeanor. Dr Poore's compassion radiates and is backed by his great sense of humor, amazing knowledge, and respectful demeanor. I am forever grateful for the exceptional care Dr. Poore and his team provided me!

Review of Dr. Nichol

- in Logan, UT |

Dr Nichol saved my sons life. Numerous doctors could not figure out what was wrong and were going to release him. He left a weekend party and rushed to the hospital and he was not on call. He diagnosed a very serious problem immediately and my son was in surgery in a matter of minutes after 2 hospitals and 2 days with others that could not figure out the diagnosis. 30-60 minutes later my son would have passed away. My son is now 9 and is very healty. We will always be grateful!

Review of Dr. Smith

- in Madison, WI |

I find it mind-boggling that the only survey in here for Dr. Smith rated her poorly. My family and I have been very happy with Dr. Smith who sees my 12 year old son for a fairly rare condition called CRMO (chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis). She is thorough, caring, and we never feel rushed. Moreover, she was the one who proactively got us in touch with Dr. Polly Perguson, probably the leading expert in the U.S., and maybe the world, on my son's condition.

Review of Dr. Poore

- in Madison, WI |

If we could only clone Dr. Poore. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is a genius in his field. Dr. Poore's sense of humor and personality makes you think you have known him for years. He is thoughtful in his explanations and takes time to make sure you understand the procedure and what to expect after. He has made himself available as much as possible during and after the procedure. He truly loves what he does and it shows. His staff is also very good and exceptionally knowledgeable.

Dr. Schroth has the best bedside manner with our son. He is a typical teenage boy and she cares and gets him to participate in his healthcare. She is AMAZING!!!
