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!!
Patient | September 5, 2016

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