Dr Poehlmann is one of the kindest most caring doctors I have ever met. He is so educated and detail oriented that his description of your case might be hard to understand if you are not a medical person. Ask him to explain it in simple terms and he will. Medicine is not a guarantee for a perfect outcome. Interview more than one until you find a great one for you. I always found Dr. Poehlmann to be highly ethical and humble and honest. I highly recommend meeting with him to discuss your case.

The guy is a hack!!! Almost ruined my wife's life. He diagnosed her as needing a stoma bag through an incision to her bladder. She cried and cried. Got a second opinion and turned out she only needed pelvic strengthening. Poehlmann was going to perform the surgery with minimal diagnoses. There is a place for Incompetence in fast food. Not the medical industry. This proves you can read books and pass tests but have poor judgement. DO NOT GIVE HIM YOUR TIME!!

STAY AWAY! HORRIBLE "DOCTOR"! He misdiagnosed me with a rare disease that I didn't have! He told me I needed a very invasive surgery and that I had a neurological disorder without hardly testing me. The first appointment after my elementary test results came back he insensitivity told me "this is so interesting- you have a very rare disease" my life turned upside down! He went on to carelessly try to schedule a VERY INVASIVE surgery for the next week. I went to UW to find I needed simple PT.

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.
