I really like Dr. Podoll. Have confidence in his treatment and abilities.
Patient | October 10, 2018

Dr. Podoll is an amazing Doctor and surgeon. He removed a cataract from my left eye at 7:15 in the morning and by 2:20 that afternoon at my followup appointment I had 20/20 vision in my left eye. Before the surgery I was legally blind in that eye. Thank you Dr. Podoll for giving me my sight back!

It was my first visit to Dr Podoll
Patient | April 16, 2018

Dr. Podoll was recommended by a good friend, so it was my first visit to him in the Franklin clinic. I retired from Vanderbilt last year and wanted to use this clinic for convenience. He was great!! Not only did he explain everything, but he was very kind and thoughtful. He expertly cared for me, answered all my questions, even one I had about my 88 year old father. I was very happy with my care!
