Not a VBAC friendly OB, 2/05/2014

I went to Dr. Pohl for my 2nd pregnancy. When I asked about a VBAC, his exact words were "do you want a dead baby?". I had NO medical reason not to be able to have a VBAC and he told me the best... thing for all babies is a repeat csection at 39 weeks and moms should just "suck up the risks". He went on to say how litigous Americans are and that "We live in American not Sub-Sharan Africa, and women should use all medical interventions". He also accused me of being a "crunch granola mom" which I am FAR from, I just want to have my baby naturally without being cut open when there is not a medical reason to do so. He also went on and on about how OB's do not make enough money for the risks they take on. Needless to say I am finding another doctor and he should find another profession.

Terrible Experience, 11/18/2013

I experienced three miscarriages under Dr. Pohl's care and although I insisted that there must be a clinical explanation for my losses, he repeatedly stated that nothing was wrong and that... “miscarriages happen.” In hindsight, I was foolish to continue to believe him, but I trusted him. Further, after each loss I only received a cold and clinical phone call from his office staff with test results confirming the miscarriage. Dr. Pohl never even personally consulted with me following the miscarriages. He would only say ‘try again.’ Recently I saw another doctor who immediately ordered a series of tests upon reviewing my medical history and I was diagnosed with a blood clotting disorder commonly associated with recurrent pregnancy loss. This disorder is treatable and if I had been given the appropriate medication during pregnancies I would have not lost three children. I hope this serves as a cautionary tale to others so that they don’t ever have to experience what I did.

AMAZING OBGYN

He is the most amazing OB I have ever been to in my life. I have been going to him for 5 years now and refuse to go to anyone elce, he is not in my health care plan right now-- and still continue to go to him full price. He knows his stuff and is very patient with everyone. He is the only doctor you see from start to finish. I love the way he works and he is beyond gental, amazing.

Perfect OBGYN

There are not enough compliments for this man and his level of professionalism. He has delivered both of our children and we had a great experience each time. Dr. Pohl is patient and listens to your needs. I love that he is the only doctor you see because he really gets to know his patients.

Great Doctor

I have been using Dr. Pohl for over 6 years now. He has delivered two of my children and will be delivering my third soon. I actually drive an hour just to see him. He is very friendly and knowledgeable and never makes you feel uncomfortable. I like that he is personable and doesn't rush you along. I would highly recommend him.

Excellent OB Doctor

Extremely knowledgeable doctor. He knows his stuff and will take great care of you while you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant. He is the only physician in his practice so he will be with you from start to finish with your baby. Best OB/GYN I have ever been to.
