Ratings for Dr. Timothy J. Poate
I went with a serious concern and reoccurring problem of increasing migraines. He signed me up for several expensive tests including an MRI and a large spectrum of blood tests. When the results came in he never called, or set up another appointment. He simply billed me with a letter suggesting I try multivitamins. Useless.
I have waited over an hour past my appointment time more than once. The office lost my request for further testing and I only found out about it TWO MONTHS after the fact. Yes, Dr. Poate is nice and friendly and helpful but what good does that do - especially in an emergency
Dr. Poate is fantastic... Very easy to talk to and discuss health issues with. I hate trying to find a good doctor that I feel comfortable with. I hope he stays in practice in the area. I moved over 40 miles away for 4 years and still made the drive to go see him over other doctors in the area. Highly recommended!
Told the receptionist after id been waiting 20 min., she said he'd be with me shortly. After 10 more, the nurse came out, I got weighed, measured and stuck in the exam room. After waiting until an hour after my appointment time, I walked out and told the receptionist to cancel my appointment. I will not be returning, and would not recommend this doctor to anyone who has any concept of punctuality. I cannot honestly say how knowledgeable he may have been because I never got to meet with him.
