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


We have seen this neurologist several times before. He made some observations about our child, and we told him that he had already been tested for what he observed. He had been sent the results nearly one year ago! He wanted to order a fourth or fifth [...], at which point we knew he was just not reading our child's file.

very much liked him
