I needed my appointments and scans moved up from Aug. Until now because of symptoms I was having. After contacting Dr.Pohlman through my chart, I received a call from his nurse asking about symptoms I was having. After she talked with Dr he wanted scans now and did the scheduling himself. I have always been extremely impressed with Dr Pohlman's care and never being in a rush with appointments. I'm really going to miss him when he retired.

Dr. Pohlman was excellent. He mentioned that he will be retiring in alittle over a year and that he is looking at my case to see which oncologist on staff would be best suited to care for me. He also mentioned that he is going to have tests run for my 10 year cancer check and go over results before he retires. This is extremely reassuring to me! He has always given me excellent care and I am sad to be losing him as my doctor but am glad he will be able to retire and enjoy doing things he loves.
