Patient Reviews
May 22, 2020
Dr Pokala is one of the most knowledgeable doctors I've ever been to. He's caring and helpful, he listens to you and gives you honest answers?. When he put me in the hospital in March 2019 for 8 days. Due to the fact that I had pneumonia and the flu he came to see me twice a day. And gave me ecllent care. The ladies in the office are very knowledgeable and helpful during the coronavirus in will working from home which was a great out because I had to call a few times and they helped me with the problems I had. I give Dr pokala 10 Stars if I could and recommend him to anybody who is looking for a pulmonary doctor.
