Thank you Dr. Poppe for the excellent care.

May 30, 2014

Dr. Poppe's care and concern during my entire experience at Huntsman were very reassuring.

May 22, 2014

I FEEL RAELLY GOOD ABOUT MY DOCTORS.

May 06, 2014

Dr. Poppe recommended some additional tests as I had some concerns on a few things.

April 17, 2014

Dr Poppe always shows such deep concern and attention - thank you!

March 21, 2014

Dr. Poppe and Dr. Terakedis explained what the radiation process was about and why I needed it. They spoke in layman's terminology, so I had no problem understanding procedures, diagnosis, and treatment possibilities. I opted to participate in a clinical trial they told me about. I feel like being in the trial may help others in the future. The medical staff and office staff have been great!

January 22, 2014

Aaron Wagner was very helpful, compassionate and answered lots of questions. Dr Poppe was very abrupt and not good with children.

November 15, 2013

I wish they would have given me more details about the spots they found, & pap smear results.

September 26, 2013

I really appreciated the fact that the time that was spent with me was mine time, not rushed, but time to ask questions, be well informed, and explained what was going to take place next. Everything was done so professional and respectful with such a caring attitude. Thank you.

July 11, 2013

I have chosen to go elsewhere. As a md, I wanted to xplore different options.I felt choices were not given

April 01, 2013

We have a lot of respect for Dr. Poppe and really appreciate his kindness and concern for my mother all along this journey. Will never forget that he put 2 and 2 together to discover a blood clot in her left leg following her surgery (long ago). So grateful for his attention and sympathetic manner. Thank you!

March 11, 2013

I have no worries about the radiation treatment I completed last month, both Dr. Poppe and Dr. Chen are very thorough.

January 02, 2013

Dr.Poppe is the best--he shows that he respects patients and cares about them. He spent time with me telling results of PET scan and didn't rush me through office visit. He spends the time with patients that they need-----even though he has other patients--probably lots more patients than I can imagine.I like him as much as Dr. Soisson (whom I've been seeing for several years.) I just wish that there was a cure for cancer. Also, the tall blond Dr. that works with Dr. Poppe explained PET results on the computer--showed me results--very helpful to me to see a picture of results--recommend this all of the time. I wish results didn't light up like a "Christmas tree" but that isn't her fault.

January 14, 2012

I honestly hope I never have to recommend care provider/hospital to anyone, but IF I do, I would highly recommend all!
