Patient for three years. Never met the doctor at all. I have only seen PA's which were great! However, the office support staff is so awful, I had to fire this practice due to the horrendous unnecessary behavior of the front office. They have run off their fair share of patients. Billing is an on and off again problem as well. This place is a hornets nest with behavioral issues. Glad to be out of there.

I see a Nurse Practitioner at Dr Pounders office for annual check up and referrals. I have been there three times so far and all of my experiences have been excellent. I highly recommend anyone in the area to see this practice for general medical advice and annual checkups.

Office was great until the mdlive concierge service was forced onto everyone. Now it has that same uncaring environment most medical offices embrace now. Problem is most people just dont have an extra $4k to cough up - even though I personally could have easily gathered up the funds I couldn't justify doing so - and decided not to join.

I have been a patient of Dr. Pounders for 17 years and I could not be happier with his care and the care of his staff. Even with him moving to concierge medicine, he still has the time to see me and treats me like he always has. To me, he is one of the best around!

I’ve been a patient of Dr Pounders since 2014, my Ex Husband since 2014, and now my new husband since 2015– we all have been very happy with Dr Pounders till recently— THIS HAS CHANGED DRAMATICALLY since Dr Pounders switched over to a “Concierge” style practice and began shuffling “NON- PERK PAYING” people/Patients to his newly highed “nurse practitioner” (NP) staff. Avoid Nurse Practitioner Cameron he is awful

I have been Steven's patient for almost twenty years and have known him since he was in medical school. I literally trust him with my life and one of the most important men in it. Recommend him? Absolutely! Trust him? Implicitly. I won't accept a referral to another specialist until I talk to him first. He is not just my doctor but my partner in my health care.

Once your established it's the best medical care ever. The business office manager is absolutely terrible, never returns calls or follows up with anything. But PA Trew Deckerd is the most caring Medical Dr I have had. Pounders is ok, but cares Little anymore. Lauren, Chris are great. The receptionist is very nice, very helpful and polite
