Stay away. This is worst doctor I have ever experienced..., Jun 17, 2013
An appointment with Dr. Pouliot is like a living nightmare. First, if you are lucky enough to obtain an appointment, you will have to wait at least an hour and a half to be seen. The front desk is incompetent and rude. I was given another patient's appointment card. I wonder who got mine? The nurse took blood without gloves on!!!! Most recently I was denied my daily prescription until I could be seen by Dr. P. I made the appointment and did everything I was supposed to do before the script ran out. Dr. P's office CANCELLED my appointment and refused to refill my script until I was seen. When I called back to reschedule, I was told I wouldn't be able to be seen for over a month and a half. Meanwhile, I have been off my medication for a week now and still awaiting a phone call back from a nurse. When I stopped in and demanded to speak to a nurse, the front desk said that would be impossible since there was only one nurse on duty...um, isn't one all it takes?
unsatisfied and in shock that he graduated from med school..., Apr 23, 2013
I waited 30 mins to be seen only after being greeted by the most unorganized and unfriendly staff I have ever seen. The doctor rushed through the appointment and clearly believed he should be doing something else with his time. I was also misdiagnosed and given a prescription for the wrong medication. This man shouldn't be practicing medicine.
Misrepresented what I told him in his report to insurance..., Apr 5, 2013
Very much in the insurance company's pocket. Inaccurately portrayed statements I made. His conclusions are opposite of 3 other doctors I've seen for this, but conveniently for the insurance company and his continuing pay from them, was that I had no medical problem and was lying about being in pain. Tests I've taken, including EMGs show definite nerve damage. He mentions those tests, but says they are meaningless. Avoid him if you can.
DO NOT GO! Read reviews on line. He is the worst!..., Mar 3, 2013
Do not go to this doctor. You will be disappointed. He was the absolute worst! He makes mistakes that cause human suffering and then he cannot even admit that he has made a mistake. Read the reviews on line. They all say the same thing!
Good staff, horrible "doctor" - Wallet stuffer versus actual clinician ..., Feb 10, 2013
In a few words?
- Horrible bed side manner; dodged questions and threatened to quit when we inquired about alternative treatment methods. This dude is older than the internet as we know it and he was throwing hissy-fits like a rabid Bieber-fan.
- Extremely pessimistic. Every conversation boiled down to DEATH. Look, I get that cancer is no walk in the park, but rubbing our faces in it is counterproductive and honestly, believe it or not, does more harm than good. After the nth time of being told "HE IS GOING TO DIE," we stopped talking to him about and kept his patient visits short.
- Biggest gripe? Cancer research is a constantly developing field and new, novel discoveries are made often enough that you might spot it in the newspaper or online. It should have been a huge red flag when this so-called M.D. was absolutely clueless about significant changes in our understanding of how cancer works.
Final remarks? He gave up on our father when we walked through the door the first time. Had we known of his lazy, outdated way of treatment, we would have walked right back out of that room without hesitation.
