Ratings for Dr. Pochna C. Kahle
Dr khale is very nice. Although I assistant patients that see her so my experience is different. When arriving to the appointments with my clients we always have to wait at Least 45 min to be seen by the doctor. My clients are hard of hearing and seeing and I was given a hard time by the male staff member to be in the room to help hear. Dr khale does not speak too loudly so I know my clients hear nothing. It's frustrating that this man does show care I want to help these people. I also came through the door pushing a wheel chair and had a small child and the man did not even move from his chair let alone take his face off his candy crush game to help me. Patient service is what makes the experience and I myself would not come to this doctors office just because of the encounter with the young man.
My family has been seeing Dr Kahle for over 30 years. She is meticulous and pays attention to every detail. She has always taken deep personal interest for two generations. Her diagnostic skills are just one of all her great assets. Please see her before you are improperly diagnosed. She has taken care of all of my family in a medical and personal. God Bless Dr Kahle.
Dr. Kahle is an "old school" Physician who takes the time necessary to listen & treat the patient's issue. That said, your scheduled appointment is seldom "on time". However, you will not find another Doctor that will provide better care. She is a caring, dedicated professional & her first priority is to listen and understand the issue and provide the best possible care. My family has seen Dr. Kahle for over 30 years and have received the best care possible. If your concern is to be in & out on time with a Dr. - go somewhere else. If you want a Doctor that will take the time to understand your concerns & give excellent care - add an hour or so to the appointment time. My family has been more concerned about receiving the best medical care possible - not how long we have to sit in the waiting room.
Dr. Kahle is a good listener who will take the time other doctors don't. She wants to know the whole story of your health so that she can give you the best care. She will not only give you a diagnosis and a prescription, but a solution that works, even if that means she'll have to consult literature, take tests, and try new remedies. She helped me solve a health issue that plagued me all my life. Other doctors had told me I had to live in discomfort because I was allergic to the medication needed to solve my problem. Now I am living happy and healthy and I think of Dr. Kahle as a great friend. Do expect to wait in the waiting room. Do expect a long appointment. While she respects your time, her biggest concern is getting you healthy no matter what it takes.
Dr. Kahle is fantastic. While it is true that I can always expect to wait when I go, often times for 45 minutes or more, it is honestly worth it. She always spends a good deal of one on one time with me and works with me needs to be sure I am getting the best treatment possible. I am sure if she didn't take this time with all of her patients, she would be more on time, but then I don't think the service provided would be as good. She is definitely not one of those doctors who sees you for 2 seconds and then sends you out the door, which I really appreciate.
I have been seeing Dr. Kahle for over twenty years. She has always been empathetic, professional, and generous with her time and attention. I think what makes her a good doctor is years of experience and keeping up with the latest developments in the medical field. Without reservation I would recommend Dr. Kahle to a friend or family member. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that I sometimes have to wait longer than I like to. But it's a small price to pay for the excellent care she provides.
I have been a patient of Dr. Kahle since 1991, both for surgery and family medicine. She is very thorough and takes time with each patient. You may wait a little but it is worth it. It is hard to find a doctor who takes time to listen and also to explain things to you, without time being an issue. I do not feel rushed when I am in the examining room. Dr. Kahle is the only doctor I have seen that when you get a physical exam, it is front head to toe!
When you arrive in Dr. Kahle's office, you probably WILL be stuck in her waiting room for a while. Trust me, it's worth it. Once Dr. Kahle is ready for you, she won't let you out the door until she's found EVERYTHING that physically wrong with you, no matter how long it takes. A speedy "would you like fries with that" level of service is NOT a virtue for medical doctors, as far as she's concerned. While you're waiting for her, her staff will do everything they can to get you ready. This includes asking preparatory questions about today's visit, helping you straighten out health insurance issues and obtaining records from your previous doctors. The magazine rack even has material from THIS year, as opposed to the vintage leftovers in other doctor's waiting rooms.
She is never on time. She will spend a lot of time on you, and you will never feel rushed. I did get Seldane from her right before it was banned and my wife got Bextra. But at the time she proscribed them the problems were not known. I would recommend if you want a low keyed doctor who will spend time with you if you want it. If you want a punctual doctor who will treat you like cattle, she is not the doctor for you.
I was a patient of Kahle for at least 18 years. she is never on time. You will always have to wait at least one hour, there were times that I had to wait a lot more. Her exam rooms have become unkept over the years. She used to be very helpful, however in recent years that has changed. I hadn't gone to her for two years, I was under the care of another doctor for a specific condition. When I went to her for a general medical condition, she charged me a new patient rate!
