The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

We have seen Dr. Pohowalla every 6 months for 3 1/2 years, yet I don't feel that he knows my son as an individual. Also, for follow-up visits, we drive 70 miles to get lab results and basic info that could be given by phone or letter, with no physical exam of my son, so these appointments don't seem to serve much purpose.

the provider did not give any new or different treatments for my son in fact he didn't treat him because we have to Ho back to the referring office for the medication and there is no monitoring being done by this provider. I was hoping for someone to get to know my son and assist with his condition [...] and monitor him to become better. I really wanted something to improve quality of life for my son and our family since his condition impacts all of us.

A great doctor.

Our care was great and I was impressed with the thoroughness of the questions, and physical assessment. Our doctor listened carefully to what my daughter had to say, and seemed very sympathetic to her issue.

my son suffered from seizures at a young age and with Dr Pohowallas help he was able to overcome the seizures and now have been seizure-free for years
