Dr. Poonawala is the most thorough doctor I have had in my whole life. He never rushes through his examination and keeps record of all medical history. He always knows what is going on with each member of my family and I never have to repeat myself in other visits. He is very knowledgeable, personable, caring, patient and understanding. My whole family sees him and I highly recommend him to all. His office staff are fabulous and very friendly.
Thank you so much for the 5-star review. We are happy to hear that you are pleased with the care received at our practice. We certainly appreciate your time in leaving such a positive review.

We have been with Dr. Poonawala for over 10 yrs now. He is wonderful, friendly, doesn't rush. He listens to what you have to say instead of immediately diagnosing and giving pills. He recommends you to specialists as soon as he feels it's needed. I read reviews and one person said HE was a SHE which I found suspicious, maybe it was intended for another doctor?? We would definitely recommend Dr. Poonawala to others.

Dr. Poonawala saved my life, his care and regular suggestions for prostate cancer screenings led to an early diagnosis of my cancer and his regular follow ups with me over the next two years provide me with comfort and additional information that allowed me make fully informed medical decisions.

I have been going to Dr. Poonawala for 3 years now and it has always been a pleasant experience all the way around. Dr. P always makes me feel welcome, comfortable, and he NEVER rushes.

She does not listen to patients and insists on speaking over them when they try to correct facts pertaining to their health. Jumps to conclusions and becomes closed minded about all else.

Very poor. Care at this practice has been steadily growing more mediocre over the last several years.

Awful doctor.
