Patient Comments (2)
in Atlanta, GA |
His nurse was very welcoming. She took her time and was very engaging. Since I was a new patient Dr Popwell talked with me in his office and listened intently to my concerns. The whole experience was very positive. I was nervous because I've read other bad reviews but for me him and his staff were great.
Definitely the worst experience I have ever been through... From pregnancy to actual delivery.. He doesn't have any bedside manner or seem to care about his patients very much at all. I had a scheduled csection and it was horrid.. I was left bruised black and blue in my pelvic region. I had plastic stitches coming out of me months after delivery. I will never use him or Schumpert Highland ever again.
