Dr. Poynter and his staff made me feel very comfortable and Dr. Poynter did not rush in and out like some doctors do. I wish he could be my doctor for everything. And I was able to get in very quickly for my very first appointment.

GREAT!!! From when you enter the front Office, Gwen is the 1st person you see that is a +++++, if your having blood draw, I can't remember her name another +++++, next you will be called back by Jill Dr Poynters nurse another +++++. I don't think there is enough +'s to give Dr Poynter. He listens, ask and answers questions, doesn't make you feel rushed, that to me means ALOT!! With all Dr's available, I could change & go to any I wanted to. BUT Dr Poynter and STAFF is where I Choose to be!!

Quick access to an appointment. Very punctual during office visit. Great "bedside manner". Very friendly and helpful. Listened attentively and got straight to the point. I will be using Dr. Poynter as my family physician from now on.

Dr. Poynter is very good. He is very knowledgeable and takes time with each patient. I highly recommend him, especially if you or members of your family play sports and may be injured at some point.

We love Dr. David! He is a kind and caring doctor with excellent knowledge and people skills. I also receive cortisone shots in my big toe joint. I "cheated" on Dr. David and asked the doctor at Emory to give me one while I was there with my husband. Dr. David does a much better injection!! He also is very good with my 87 year old mother who is a former RN and "demands" quality care with kindness. We are at the right place and have been for several years.
Lawrenceville, GA |
I would recommend Dr. Poynter in a heartbeat, he is truly a nice, caring individual!
in Good Hope, Ga |
I have a number of complicated health issues, involving a variety of specialists and out-of-the-ordinary treatments and have been rejected as too complicated by many PCMs. Dr. Poynter and his Staff welcomed me warmly, setting my nervousness at ease with professional yet unhurried and empathetic care on my 1st visit! I am so thankful to have found this practice and look forward to working with them all in the years to come. I honestly believe my health and quality of life will improve greatly!??
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.
Monroe, GA |
I have had an amazing experience with Dr. Poynter. I began seeing him in Monroe at his last practice, then followed him to Loganville. He is extremely thorough and he genuinely cares about his patients. He even put the word out to his friends when I was looking for a new teaching position. He always goes above and beyond for his patients. Also his staff in incredibly sweet and helpful. And the lady who draws blood is AMAZING. I literally don't feel a thing (and I usually pass out).
We strive to provide the highest quality in patient care. Thank you so much for sharing this story with us!
in Loganville, GA |
Dr. Poynter is down to earth and conservative. He is knowledgeable, caring and totally listens to what you have to say. You never feel rushed or walk out of the office without having explained. I have already recommended Dr. Poynter to my son who lives in Suwannee!
in Monroe, GA |
Dr Poynter is an excellent Doctor. He is caring and takes time to listen to me, before he begins his exam and before looking at treatment. My whole family goes to him, and we highly recommend him to all of our friends.

He pulls up a chair, sits down, listens, and talks. He explains things thoroughly and will try simple treatments before moving on to more aggressive options. He is really good to educate the patient.
