I am a 42 year male who underwent a triple bypass under Dr. Pool's care in January of 2019. I cannot begin to say how happy and satisfied my family and I are with the care I was provided. At no point in my pre or post surgical process did I feel less than absolutely confident in Dr. Pool's expertise and guidance. The absolute confidence and faith with which he operates is inspiring. My procedure went perfectly and I feel amazing. Thank God for Dr. Pool indeed.

Dr. Pool was highly recommended to us by Dr. Le at THR at Alliance. He certainly "LIVED UP" to his recommendation. We are so grateful for a heart surgeon who knows what he is doing. Every time I, or my wife, talk to persons regarding the surgery, we give Dr. Pool an excellent "rating" and recommend him if they, or anyone they know, needs heart surgery. I mostly appreciate his praying with us; his skill is blessed by God

Dr. Pool was truly an answer to my prayers. Facing open heart surgery was scary, but it was comforting to know that he also put his trust in the Lord. He took the time to pray with me before surgery which helped tremendously. I’m alive! Thanks be to God and to Dr. Pool.

We (my husband and I and our entire family) LOVE Dr. Pool. He is a gentle spirit, low key, very personable and does an amazing job. He is the best cardiac surgeon in the world. There is NO ONE better. He prays with you too!!!! My husband was 85 and had his surgery on his 86th birthday! He is doing GREAT!! You can call us if you would like. Open heart surgery is scary when you are older.

I feel so fortunate to have found Dr. Pool. He is down-to-earth and has a great bedside manner. I have found many surgeons are arrogant and have no sense of humor. Not Dr. Pool. My procedure went well and I was confident in his care of me, something very important in recovery. l really appreciated his call on a Saturday morning about my pathology report. How kind of him to take time on the weekend to let me know the good news. He never corrected me when I called him Dr. Pond either!

Dr. Pool is very caring and spends time letting you know just what to expect before, during and after surgery. He answers all questions and makes sure you are satisfied with his answers. In addition to his extremely delightful bedside manner, he also offers comfort for his patients and their families through prayer.

Dr Pool performed an emergency repair of an aortic aneurysm in mid-April. Although it was an emergent situation, he prayed with me, which was very comforting to me. His bedside manner was positive and he answered questions in an understandable manner. His physician's assistants that i worked with were the same, which demonstrates that he leads by example.

Dr. Pool performed surgery on me in August 2017. He repaired my mitral valve and did a double bypass. Before surgery and after, I felt like Dr. Pool was a friend and someone who cared deeply about me and my family and our well-being. We were delighted with his style and professionalism and would recommend him to anyone needing the type of care he and his staff provide.

In early April, 2018, it was determined that I needed triple bypass surgery, and very urgently at that. I feel I was extremely fortunate to have Dr. Pool as my surgeon; I don't think I could have found anyone better. He is an extremely skilled and competent surgeon, but above that, a truly compassionate and caring person. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Pool is a very religious, professioal, caring surgeon with a great bedside mannor and a way of taking the fear of surgery out of you. I was diagnosed with lung cancer and was very afraid of what he would find when he performed the lobectomy on me. After he prayed with me before taking me into surgery I felt much more at ease. I am very glad I found him and I would recommend him to my family and friends.

Dr. Pool is a wonderful doctor. He is so caring. He prayed with me when I first met with him and at my follow up visit. Having him for a doctor was a true blessing. I am so grateful for the care he took and for saving my life. He also wrote me a very kind letter after my follow up visit.
