Very Pleased with my appointment with Dr Pourcho, gave me very sound advise as to how to proceed with my injuries, what options are available and what to avoid and leave alone.

One of the best doctors I've seen

outstanding care provider!!

Dr. Pourcho is blue chip. He is a great guy and a great physician

In the future he should introduce himself to family in the room. It was off-putting that he didn't acknowledge my wife.

I had not been to this clinic for several years. There was a noticeable difference in the atmosphere at the clinic. Much more relaxed and people didn't seem as stressed as they used to. It was much more conducive to meeting patients needs.

Spent a lot of time explaining to his students so that what I mostly went by.

Dr. Pourcho is a great provider. He does great work and it shows. He really cares about his patients and his staff.

great dr

In just two visits this provider helped ease pain I had been experiencing for two years.

Dr Pourcho is, as always, an exceedingly talented health care provider. Very personable and the best at his job. He very much cares for his patients' wellbeing.

Dr. Pourcho no doubt knows what he is doing, but at all four visits, I felt rushed and the instructions he sent me home with after my procedure and subsequent follow ups have been generic and not actually correct for my treatment. He seems to be rushing things and not taking the time to customize care for individual patients. I also felt disrespected by him: he assumed that I was a certain personality type who would resist following directions for the treatment of a torn plantar fascia, and he seemed not to respect my athletic endeavors because I am not a "professional athlete." He is a nice man and an excellent doctor, but he is too rushed and unintentionally disrespectful. Though I ask many questions during my visit, I have yet to go home without discovering more questions once I read his directions for my recovery. It's very frustrating. I feel like I am being a nuisance for always asking follow up questions. For example, when I had my procedure, the instructions for afterward at home said to do range of motion exercises. He never said anything about this, so I used My Chart to ask him about it. He said, "Good catch. I definitely don't want you doing that." Something like this has happened every time.

I always feel that Dr. Pourcho cares about my well being, listens to me and provides me with solid solutions to my health problems. I would rate him as a 10 in terms of being professional, competent and genuinely caring about his patients.

Dr. Pourcho is first class.

It would have been good to have had a little more time with the care provider to ask more questions, but I didn't fault the care provider for that - I think it's just a function of how busy doctor's schedules are these days.

He's awesome, have already recommended him and will have my daughter see him also for her knee

Dr. Porcho is a great addition to your medical staff. He is at the top of my list of doctors who understand their role and knowledge of his profession. You couldn't have anyone better when treating a patient. He knows his stuff and will spend the time with you that is needed explaining what has occurred and what will occur. You better keep him

Excellent doctor! I have highly recommended Dr. Pourcho to my friends with back issues.

Only bad thing I have to say about Dr.Pourcho is, when he was working on my foot and I said I can feel something, Dr.Pourcho said" you've seen too many of these. It's all in your head." i was feeling pain in my foot not my head.

Dr Pourcho's clinical competence is second to none. I have no explanation for the fact that I've seen many other doctors for my musculoskeletal issues over the years, and yet he is the only one who has been able to offer me both immediate relief for acute issues, and working strategies for longterm treatment and prevention. Not only that, but he remembers me every time I go in (this is less and less frequent, because I am actually improving). It means a lot to me that he makes eye contact and doesn't spend half the appointment glued to the screen of his computer. I feel like a human being, not a problem to be solved. His whole team is excellent.
