Care Philosophy

Prevention is of the utmost importance to me. In many situations, the use of medications are like placing a bandage OVER a problem, but not actually solving the problem itself. I try to do both, and spend as much time focusing on Wellness and Prevention as I do on dealing with the acute problems themselves.

Read the review by David C. And I'm sorry, I totally disagree. He takes more time with his patients than any doc I've ever known! I'm a bad patient and he's NEVER lectured me or made me feel small for not following his directions. Great doc and I've seen many. Highly recommended!

Dr. Pouls spends more time with us then what you would expect from a busy practice. He is always friendly, but stern when he needs to be (like with my husband). We all love that he is very clear about what problems we are dealing with, and what needs to be done. He is very much about taking responsibility for our own well being--and will remind us of this. Speaking of which, if you are not ready to really hear the honest truth about your conditions, you are probably not ready to see Dr. pouls.

I drive 40 minutes to bring my family to Dr. Pouls. He is caring, honest and amazing. He has been a blessing to my family for almost 20 years!

Had my first and LAST appointment with the most arrogant Dr. I have ever met. Sight unseen, knows nothing about me or my situation, opens our initial meeting with a lecture and making it clear as could be that he has "5,000" patients and does not have time for me if I am not going to seriously lose weight... Thanks for taking some time to hear me out, get to know me, even a little, before JUDGING me. If I were bleeding profusely, I would not let this guy treat me...

He spends time with you. He doesn't stand at the door with his hand on the door knob. He listens, you are also able to talk with him. If you don't agree with something, you feel like you can talk it out and come to a good conclusion. He really knows his stuff. I can't imagine not going to him.
