Patient Comments (1)
in Ankeny, IA |
I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Pote for a second opinion on some medical things that are going on with me. I wasn't satisfied with my primary doctors thoughts because he just pushed them off and decided they were because of an old problem. When I came into the office, Dr. Pote listened, asked questions, took notes, and actually LISTENED to my concerns. She was very thorough with all of her questions and next steps and validated my concerns. It was a breath of fresh air! She was amazing!
