Extremely well articulated surgeon. I’ve had two different procedures with Dr. Pomp and have recovered very well. He is very caring and adores what he does. His passion with caring for me prove how amazing he is and not all surgeons are like him. I have recommended Dr. Pomp to other people who have had the very same experience I had and I feel grateful for him and his compassion for his patients. His nurse Shazia is also amazing and deeply caring as she connects closely with his patients.
