I saw Dr. Pomakov today. My husband and I found him to be professional, kind and respectful. He patiently listened and answered all my questions. He thoroughly explained the results of recent tests and how he will follow up with me in the future. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pomakov.

Look for another GI doctor

His tone is condesending. He never has an answer. He refers you to everyone else when it is a GI problem. Which is his speciality. It's always " I don't know what's wrong" His english is poor. His bedside manner needs much improvement. It's almost like YOU are wasting his time, yet it's your insurance paying him. He doesn't care if your symptoms are painful. His office staff, his assistant is horrible and the tone she uses with you. They should be there to help, not be intimidating.
