    Dr Poree always listens with patients and his knowledge is astrological compared to my local pain doctor that just refills my meds.

    Dr. Poree was very attentive and understanding as I described why I was referred to his office. I appreciated that he allowed me to explain the events that has led me to my my present condition. Many doctors/ specialists dismiss or minimize my pain because of my age.

    Care provider did not have the proper previous medical reports MRI's x-rays etc. To be able to have any where near a full discussion. Reports will be accumulated and sent to the Doctor.

    The overall presentation of the doctor was that he lacks compassion empathy and concern and that he is gruff and cranky. I am concerned that in an emergent situation he may not be a provider I can turn to for assistance.

    Dr. Poree is an exceptional human being. He is very knowledgeable In his field and Is so willing share his expertise. He explained everything In laymans' terms and made sure that all of my many questions were answered before leaving. He was very calm and did not rush through this first meeting. I was very Impressed with his kind demeanor and sincerely caring to get me out of this severe pain. He did give me hope that I will walk again without pain. I wiah that other doctors would emulate the hopeful spirit that Dr. Poree radiates to his patients

    There were referrals for a different MRI and pelvic floor specialist but everything's labor intensive. I need to try to get a real person to address scheduling
