Professional, the best at what he does!

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. My incisions are healing very well. Between the pre op diet and the surgery I am down 20lbs!!! Also the nurses at Dr. Pohl office and very friendly and always available for questions!
