      Dr.Pole is wonderful he's friendly, knowledgeable took time to listen to my concerns and answered all questions. I never feel rushed and I leave getting the care I need. I was going to there for last two years he has worked diligently with me on improving my blood sugar problem which was at initial stage by recommending proper diet and exercise without medication. I felt he truly cared, was really impressed with this doctor.
      in Long Beach, CA |
      Dr. Pole was careless in looking at multiple medical problems including prescriptions that should not be taken together. He failed to order proper tests and ignored high blood pressure and other symptoms. He was very unconcerned saying "don't worry about that right now" and "we don't need to run tests" instead of taking care of issues that developed and worsened. He needs to take his patient's symptoms much more seriously.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Pole's Care Philosophy

      We are committed to delivering first-class primary care services, with timely appointments, good communication, efficient patient visits, and a one-stop approach to diagnosis and treatment. Our patient care philosophy is based on the belief that the quality of medical care delivered is directly related to the amount of time physicians spend with their patients. We believe patients want to spend more time with their doctors, they want more dialogue, and they want to be able to see their doctors when they need to see them. We practice an integrated approach to patient care, coordinating with subspecialists . For patients who need subspecialty care, the department we have a variety of choice for consultation and care for specific medical problems.
