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.

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.
