    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.

An Excellent Physician

Dr. Poor was my doctor for over 15 years. He is the best doctor I ever had. Sadly, I had to switch over to Kaiser and can no longer see him. We miss him terribly and would recommend him to anyone.

Best Doctor in Sacramento

My wife and I have been with dr poor for several years and I have to say he is the best I have ever had. He is personable, caring and on the cutting edge with his knowledge of the newest studies. He started my wife and I on Vitamin D supplements years before the news reported the benefits. I have been out of town with an issue and a phone call to him allowed me to start on antibiotics early. Of course, being the kind of dr he is, he followed up with me once I returned. Overall, this is the doctor you want to see for preventative and illness issues.!

Dear Reader or Future Patient

My experience with Doctor Poor has been excellent. I have nothing but a great report to give about him. He has always been kind, caring, professional, and thoughtful. I have had the pleasure of dealing with Doctor Poor because I run an assisted living and care home: Cozy Home Care, located in Carmichael. I have been in this business for 11 years and can honestly say that Doctor Poor has been one of the best doctors that I have ever known. I had a resident here of Doctor Poor's, Nella. When Nella wasn't able to stay here at Cozy Home Care she was then moved to a nursing home. There she had a short stay on hospice and during that short stay of about a week Doctor Poor went to go see Nella two times, which is absolutely unheard of these days!! I was shocked by how much care and compassion he put into his patients. His thoughtfulness and overall professionalism prompted me to write this report about him. These days we all write and hear about bad things. Well, today I want to write about an exemplary doctor and about how much doctors like him do for those in his care. I hope that you understand that I will always recommend Doctor Poor to anyone out there that is looking for a caring, compassionate, understanding, and professional doctor.
