What People Say About Dr. Rama Poola, MD
I saw a General practitioner for years. Within my first couple of visits Dr. Poola had my problem properly diagnosed and got me in for surgery and has been very good about following up. If you need someone to hold your hand, anyone will do. If you need someone who knows her stuff and will be very aggressive in finding out why you have a problem, my money's on Dr Poola.

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Rama Poola, MD?
Dr Poola and her colleague accused me of being a drug user! I can't believe the level of care . Highly unethical. I've had an ongoing Thyroid problem and went there for a second opinion. They are a complete disgrace to the medical field and I'm going to let everybody know that. It took over 4 months to get in to see them while my normal doctor got me in to see somebody before then overall horrible
