      Absolutely terrible physician. Became offended when I asked about simple questions regarding my surgery, didn't care about me or my procedure at all. He was only interested in whether I could pay for my surgery. I'm a young, insured athlete and would never let him operate on me

      Doctor Poole is wonderful !! ... a good person and a fantastic surgeon. Two hip replacements with fabulous results. Both times my experience with Dr. Poole was great. He is a very caring physician and has great skill. He and his staff are attentive and helpful. Long waits to get appointment but well worth it.
