Dr. Podoll inspires confidence in his abilities and knowledge of his field of specialty. I feel fortunate to have him involved in the care of my eyesight.
Patient | March 4, 2017
This was my first visit with Dr. Padoll - so - I didn't have the rapport with him that I had with other doctor but I like him. And I think he will do a good job for me and my eyes. Seems like a very nice young doctor!

Excellent rapport w/care provider.
Patient | September 16, 2016
This is the first time that I saw this care provider. He will be my care provider in the future.
Patient | September 12, 2016
This was my first visit with Dr. Podoll and I found it little disconcerting that he talked to me initially in a manner and tone that would appeal to an uneducated or illiterate patient. He very quickly changed his tone and demeanor and everything else was fine. I believe he is very competent physician and I am very happy that he has joined the practice!!

Much talk between doctor & his assistant. I felt like a third wheel.
