    Dr. Pounds is the best rheumatologist I've been to. He took his time with me, addressed each of my concerns and prescribed me a personalized treatment plan based on my symptoms. Plus, he can definitely rock a bow tie.
    Very kind and spends time listening to your concerns. Didn't feel rushed or blown off. Overall great visit.
