      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
