Dr. Poiesz, has been my Oncologist for nearly two years, what I consider his biggest attribute is his ability to either do research on an issue or say "I don't know" but let's find a solution to a problem. I would highly recommend him to friends, family or anyone looking for a Dr.

When I got the diagnosis of breast cancer, it was devastating. Dr. Poiesz, and ALL the staff at Woodlands Medical Specialists, have made dealing with this considerably easier. ALL staff have exhibited nothing but the best of care, compassion and expertise in the treatment of this disease. I cannot say enough about Dr. Poiesz and everyone who has treated me there. It's the best group of medical specialists that I've every had to deal with, and the continued care and treatment is beyond reproach. Thank you, Dr. Poiesz, and Woodlands Medical Specialists.

I have worked with Dr. Poiesz and have to say I am shocked on these reviews, he is to the point, but very honest. He spends time reviewing charts before he sees his patients. He is a great physician! You can ask him anything and he will explain it to you. He is extremely knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to find other options for patients that no one else thought of. He is a physician. If records or something wasn't there maybe you should speak to the office manager.

Dr. Poiesz was never invested in my husband's care or his life. He was unprepared for office visits and did not review my husband's blood work or films prior to meeting with us. He needed to be reminded that films that he ordered were done. Simply and tragically, he did not care. I firmly believe my husband would have lived longer if he was seen by another medical oncologist. I have no confidence in Dr. Poiesz and pray he becomes more dedicated to his patients and his profession.

I would not recommend Dr. Poiesz to anyone. My father was a patient of his and he did absolutely nothing for him and was not up front and honest with him or my mother at all! He appeared very unprofessional when I was in the office with them. He spent much more time discussing sports with my father than doing anything worthwhile for him. He never walked across the street from his office to see my father in the hospital when he was dying!!
