Dr. Poling and his team have shown me excellent care each time I have visited the office. Most recently, I went in for a splitting migraine with extreme sensitivity to light and sound, Dr. Poling and his team took extra measures to make me more comfortable. When Dr. Poling saw me sitting in the exam room with my sunglasses on to block out some light, he turned off the light, opened the exam room door to allow some light in and worked in the dark. On a Friday afternoon as probably one of the last appointments of the day, Dr. Poling and his team did not cut corners while caring for me. This is most appreciated.

I used to hate going to the doctor when I lived in San Antonio. i had the same doctor for probably over 10 years and always felt as if i was not taken seriously or as if i was just a number on a chart. Upon finding Dr.Polling I was relieved. He not only listens to his patients and is very helpful but he seems to try to remember at least a little personal information from each client such as college majors. This helps generate an organic and friendly Conversation that makes you feel like you are being cared for.
