I love Dr. Pohl. He is an excellent surgeon, keeps up with latest medicine, and is conservative in his approach. He is a kind and ethical man. Can't say enough good things.

Going to see Dr. Pohl for my Gastric Bypass was the best choice I made! He preformed the same surgery on my Mom 12 years before mine and she did absolutely amazing. Even to this day she has kept the weight off. I am almost 2 weeks post-op and I feel amazing. My recovery so far has been very easy....more
