  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Had an Endoscopy done and was in and out in under 2 hours. Everything went well. He was very polite and answered all questions afterwards. Staff was also very nice and professional throughout the procedure.

Four Stars

Dr. Poole is a knowledgeable and competent gastroenterologist. I agree with a previous reviewer that touch-feely is not his style, rather he gets down to business. However, he seemed surprised and a bit miffed that I asked a fair number of questions. It is important to me to be a participant in my health care, and Dr. Poole doesn't seem to be interested in that kind of rapport.

He's a busy doctor

Dr. Poole is in high demand. He's thorough but he doesn't waste any time either. He gave me the information I needed, no more, no less. If you're looking for a "touchy-feely" experience, he's probably not your man. But if you want a skilled professional who is effective and accurate, he's just the Gastroenterologist you need to see. I'm definitely going to return to see five years from now.

More interested in my money than medical care

I am upset that the doctor forced me to come in on two separate days (one for an upper endoscopy and another day the following week for a colonoscopy) all so that he could get paid more. Meanwhile I had to take two days off of work. Despite all his testing he spent very little time ever talking to me. Would never go back to him.
