    Dr. Poola is always wonderful. She never makes you feel she is rushed or not concerned with your needs. She explains everything in detail and listens to even the lengthiest of stories. She is always concerned with ALL of my health problems not just my diabetes. There are not enough good words to describe her.

    Dr. Poola asked me how I would like to proceed. She made it very clear that if I don't lose weight and get my blood sugars under control within three months I would need to start insulin. She was very clear with me. She also was very encouraging to me. She used a lot of positive words that I needed to hear telling me that she knew I could do this. A lot of decision making about what foods to eat is setting my mind to making good choices. I know this. So, more than just the food I eat, I am working to control my mind about why I continue to eat badly and make some healthy choices. Not only was Dr. Poola encouraging, but the girl at the front desk also. When I said I need to come back in three months and that I needed to lose 15 pounds by then, she said "I've got faith in you! I know you can do it!". I have the best of the best, but it is up to me to make some very important changes! If they think I can...maybe....well, not maybe....but I know I can!

    Dr. Poola was so kind and down to earth, but she was also very professional. I felt completely comfortable talking with her about my health issue. I prefer no medicine if it can be handled by diet and exercise and she agreed. I feel like we have a good plan to try to find out what's causing my problem, and am happy she wants to follow-up keep and be informed of my progress. Honestly, these days most doctors don't care so it is very refreshing to find one who does. I will definitely recommend Dr. Poola to anyone who might need her services.

    I had to switch to Dr Poola because the endocrinologist I had at Springfield Clinic was rude and her staff was just plain mean. I am so glad I switched to HSHS, this team is so much better! keep up the good work!

    follow up will be the key with this provider. so far the prescription orders sent to the pharmacy were not coherent enough for them to dispense order. apparently the pharmacy is awaiting clarification from the doctor Rama Poola. furthermore when I went to the lab at a different location the lab orders did not indicate I needed a diabetes urine test as was discussed with Dr. R Poola.

    she did make a comment about my weight that wasn't very nice. it was in the way she said it that made me feel like I was being judged.

    I have been a patient with Joslin Diabetes Center for 24 years. I have always received the upmost care regarding my health conditions. When HSHS Medical Group took over this wonderful care continued. This is the first time I have seen Dr. Poola. I have liked the other doctors, but I plan to permanently change to Dr. Poola.

    Dr. Poola very much promotes and practices the concept that we are a "team" when it comes to my health care; In fact, she also readily includes my wife as part of our "team." I feel that Dr. Poola not only WELCOMES my thoughts and in-put on my health issues, but she really EXPECTS that involvement.
