Dr. Povar is extremely rude and unprofessional. As a healthcare provider, I would not recommend her. She speaks of her patients in a condescending manner.

Rude and condescending. She may be very smart but her bedside manner is horrible. Disrespectful toward my mom. Seems to enjoy arguing. Will never see her again.

I have been seeing Dr Povar as my primary care doctor since 1992. She is thorough and very likable. When I have needed specialists she has referred me to excellent doctors. I recommend Dr Povar without hesitation. She's great.
