Saw me in the hospital. Horrible demeanor. Did not want to follow my previously prescribed diabetes medication plan nor wanted to discuss. Just dismissed my questions and stated he was doing what would make the nurses job easier. Really made a mess of my very controlled diabetes. Took me weeks to get back under control. I would not recommend.

Dr. Poudyal was a good Dr. However did not follow through on a letter he had promised me. That lack of a letter has led to a horrendous outcome.

Thank you Dr. Poudyal for the dare you gave my mother the last few days of her life. Your call to me about the important next steps made a big difference. You are a model doctor for other physicians and I'm in your debt. Thank you from our whole family.

Dr. Poudyal took care of me when I was hospitalized for four days. He provided excellent care to me. His bedside manners are kind and comforting. He took the time to explain everything that was going on. Moreover, he always got back to us when we had questions and was always courteous to us. He is the best doctor I have seen in awhile. I am glad that I was in safe hands under his care.
