*Dr. Poehling is excellent. Just wish he still did surgery. Our experience this visit equal to or better than visits years ago. He is slow to recommend surgery - tries all medical treatment at his disposal first. He has wonderful bedside manner, using words easily understood. He instills confidence that he knows what he recommends. We both are thankful he has not retired yet.

7/30/2016

I was happy overall with this provider but there was a delay in his looking at my x-ray and MRI to to his not being able to locate it on the computer. One of my issues was a torn meniscus but I didn't learn much about it. The other problems, the osteoarthritis, was well explained to me.

7/26/2016

Doctor very friendly and explained my next step
