Dr. Poduval and her office staff truly care about their patients. Dr. Poduval takes her time during the visit, listens carefully, has such vast medical knowledge, and has a wonderful bedside manner! Her office staff is efficient, we didn't wait in the lobby for more than a few minutes. I highly recommend Sonoran Pediatric Endocrinology!!!

We visited Dr Poduval and staff today at Sonoran Pediatric Endocrinology and everyone from the front receptionist, MA and Dr. Poduval were fantastic. Working in the health care field and a hospital myself, I couldn’t have asked for better care! Dr Poduval was better thorough and educational. Thank you! :)

This dr. Doesn’t listen to your chief complaint. She isn’t trying to get down to the problem. She actually didn’t do anything in the appointment except for saying we can re-check the basics (tsh) anything farther she won’t do. I have been dealing with fatigue for about a year and all she can say is Tsh levels, what about the rest? Why is my Atch high and the rest of my blood work not at the proper levels? She didn’t care -and so I would not recommend her if you want a dr to actually do somethin

My experience was extremely negative. I brought my kids in to see the doctor and we didn't even talk to her for more than five minutes. The entire visit wax with the nurse who acted as though she was God's gift to medicine. The egos are big in that office and I don't recommend them. There's a reason why there's no wait to get in.

One of the best doctors, I have ever seen. As a parent of a child with special needs, I am always looking for good doctors. I took my son who has special needs(autism) to see Dr. Poduval and I was very impressed. Great bedside manners, very knowledgeable. She took the time to listen my concerns. She did a thorough history and addressed all my concerns. She was not on hurry to get to the next patient. Dr. Potuval and her staff were great.
