Just for an update, Dr. Pogodzinski is not accepting new patients for at least 6 months although it says he is; this is unfortunate as I was looking to see him as he was rated well. Definitely, makes me feel bad on first impressions.

Dr. "Pogo" is one of the best family practitioners I have ever seen. He treated my family with respect, kindness, and also "firmness" when needed. He has a wonderful bedside manner and truly cares about his patients. We moved from PA and are sad to have to find a new doctor!
