He delivered my high risk child early in his career. He had no empathy whatsoever. His comment 'if you would quit whining and start pushing you'd be done' will never be forgotten. I tore-he sewed me up without waiting at all for the local anesthetic to take effect. He is in the wrong profession.

Four years Dr. Poehlmann damaged my ureter during a standard hysterectomy. At this time he worked as a contractor for the US Army in El Paso, Texas. His words: Have fun sueing the Army. He has left Texas. After five surgical attemps I had to give up my kidney this year. My life has never been the same. Don' t let him touch you.
