Dr. Pound has been my Dr. for about 36 years and I would give her a very high rating! Also other family members are patients. We are so sad she is leaving, but happy for her.

I think that Dr Pound is a wonderful doctor. She listens and takes care of your problems. If she sees anything that a specialist needs to see then she makes sure you see one. I have been seeing Dr Pound for twenty-plus years and I feel pretty healthy.

If I could rate with less than 1 star, I would. My mom was a patient of hers for years and was overloaded with medications. This last week she has seen a cardiologist and had a pacemaker put in due to the damage done by Dr. Pound loading her up with 39 meds. Dr. Pound is well known on the streets as the "Junkie Dr". Want meds, go to her and she will write them without a care in the world. She doesn't care about your health or you as a person. All she wants is for you to come in and pay the copay and file insurance. If I could have her put in prison for what she has done to my mother, I would do it in a heartbeat!! She should NOT be allowed to have a MD behind her name!!!! Absolutely pathetic!!!

My father went to her for years. Kept going to her because he was not feeling good. She kept telling there was nothing to worry about except his age. We ended up getting another dr on the case. When they found out what was wrong. Dad had 2 weeks to live. Don’t use her.

She caused me almost to lose my left hand ! I told her it was infected and I needed a antibiotic . She said it was inflammation . Three days later they had to cut my hand in half to save it because the infection had gotten so bad . My hand will never be the same. ! No recommending her here !

I would not recommend anyone to this Dr. I am a patient that suffers from extreme depression and anxiety. I lost my job due to cutbacks and have no insurance. I take care of my 2 and 4 year olds. Dr pound has refused to call in my depression medication unless I come in though there is no change in my health. I cannot afford to go so I have been throwing up and crying for hours on end the last 2 days due to withdrawals from my medication. She is a heartless, money hungry individual.

I just do not think she cares about my sister. She in her early eighties and has visited doctors all her life. She keeps her waiting for a long period of time and then doesn’t spend any time listening. She is looking for a new doctor. Older people (men and women) deserve some dignity and respect. I am very disappointed in her treatment of my sister. This is sad.
