I have complete trust and utmost respect in Dr. Pope and his medical staff. He/they explain(s) things to me in detail, they hear what I'm asking and answers so I clearly understand next steps and make me feel comfortable. I'm grateful to all of them.

I had been hospitalized twice; seen by several "specialists"and released without a diagnosis. On my third hospitalization I was fortunate to have been seen by Dr. Pope. He is the type of physician everyone would love to have. He is an amazing listener and treats the "whole" patient rather than the speciality. Dr. Pope changed my life. He was able to form an accurate diagnosis and offer a successful treatment plan. Being treated by him gave me back a wonderful quality of life that had been missing. I have recommended several people to Dr. Pope. I am feel fortunate that he was on "rounds" and began to treat me.

dr Popewas not only kind but alsoexplained terms I didn't understand. He was thorough and very much needed breath of fresh air after wondering why my treatment wasn't working. I would love him for my doctor,although he is giving a second opinion for mine .

Dr. Pope is an outstanding doctor. After suffering more than 25 years of joint pain, he was the only doctor to diagnose me and then get me on a treatment plan. I'm grateful!
