Anyone in need of a obgyn must be aware of this man. He is basically running a BABY MILL trying to squeeze as many patients in each day to insure he get's every last doller. He is quick to do c-sections because a normal deliverly takes too much time for him. I have talked to many women about this man and the majority felt the same way(90% of the women I talked with were given an unneceenssary c-section). I myself was told I would be given a c-section and there was absoutly NO way out of it. Well since he wouldn't refer me to anybody I went to Baptist when it was time for me to deliver as I knew this man was lieing to me. I had NO problems and the hospitalist was quick to assure me he was wrong. I had a vaginal birth to healthy baby boy. So mothers BEWARE save yourself.

I agree that Dr. Pou is a poor excuse of a doctor. So rushed and overloaded with patients he can't take more than a few minutes to speak with you. He required me to have a c-section and I suffered multiple complications from the procedure. When I was ready to deliver my next child I chose a doctor in Nashville and they were horrified at the incision and scars left from his surgery. Very happy I went to Nashville for care and delivery.

He tried giving me a c-section as well as it came closer to my delivery date. I quicky changed OBGYN's and had no complications during delivery.

I'm sorry that you've had such a negative experience with Dr. Pou, truly, but the man saved my life. If it were not for him finding an ectopic pregnancy, I wouldn't be here. I have to give him respect for that. He also delivered my son naturally a little over a decade ago, and never once pushed for a C-section. Maybe things have changed in the past few years, but I never had a bad experience with him unless I didn't come in on time to get a "check-up." He did get fussy about that.

He is out for the $ that is all. He will not take patients that are referred to him from the ER if they don't have insurance that he likes. I have seen him turn women away in pain. I would not let him Dr my dog. Why chose someone that is way to over loaded anyhow? When you HAVE A CHOICE! Find a Dr that has time for you and makes you comfortable in every way!

Not a patient but it sounds like he deals with patients the same way he deals with everybody else. Complete and total arrogance.
