Dr. Poor is always very understanding and caring. Dr. Poor has helped me in several signifigant health issues.

April 04, 2015

Dr. Poor is great! I'm sad to see him go. Super nice guy.

March 11, 2015

great visit. Dr. Poor has always maintained a high degree of integrity and care at all visits

February 28, 2015

Dr. Poor even corresponded with me through My Chart when I had additional questions regarding my visit, this was a huge plus

February 18, 2015

We followed Dr. Poor from his other clinics. We would follow him again. We love him. He is very understanding and caring. He always ensures we are well taken care of.

February 14, 2015

First visit with Dr. Poor. I thought he provided good, thorough care. I think he spent adequate time with me and addressed my concerns.

February 11, 2015

When Dr. Gibson left I was sure we'd never find someone as great as her. Then we started seeing Dr. Poor. He has been amazing. We will be so sad if/when he moves on.

February 11, 2015

I have recommended Dr. Poor to everyone asking about a provider. It will be a tragic day when he leaves.

February 09, 2015

Dr. Poor was very kind and patient and although he was unable to figure out what was wrong he was will to run some tests and rule a few things out before sending me on to a specialist.

February 05, 2015

Dr. Poor was good. I feel like my shoulder is a black hole which has very little chance of any real resolution. I don't have much hope after the appt. I felt like physical therapy was just throwing a dart and seeing if it sticks.

January 30, 2015

Both the doctor and the PA or NP (not sure which one she was) were very professional and friendly. They showed concern and were more than accommodating to make sure I got all requested tests done and referral for a procedure. Very impressed.

January 27, 2015

He listened to everything I had to say. He worked with the way my body works and got the problem taken care of. He consented to become my PCP and I look forward to working with him.

January 25, 2015

I always feel like I am important and that my concerns are addressed when I go to South Jordan Clinic.

January 24, 2015

Concerned that I had to use mychart's e-mail to contact the provider about abnormal labs on my husband a week after his blood draw. I would have thought his office would have contacted us sooner.

January 17, 2015

Dr. Poor took the time to explain everything and put my mind at ease about the problem I came in to see him. When I left I knew that everything would be okay and felt confident that my problem was being taking care of correctly.

December 30, 2014

It would be nice if we were able to spend more time with the Doctor so that we could get to know him

December 29, 2014

Dr Poor was nice.He seemed hurried. Seemed eager to pass me off to Dr Wilson.

December 29, 2014

Dr. Poor and his staff are always caring. They make sure that you understand the problems and are a part of the team in an effort to rectify the problem.

December 18, 2014

Nothing could have been better

December 14, 2014

Dr Poor is a very understanding Doctor and listen to my concerns that I had.

December 12, 2014

Dr. P door seemed very rushed during last appt. Felt like he didn't have time to address my concerns. Not typical behavior for him.

December 06, 2014

I felt Dr. Poor genuinely engaged in answering my questions and I really appreciated the level at which he allowed me to be a partner in decisions about next steps toward improving my health. The entire experience was a productive use of time.

December 05, 2014

He was very good with my son in a difficult situation. I really appreciated the caring tone he provided to both of us.

November 13, 2014

Dr. Poor is the only reason I have not moved to Intermountain.

November 07, 2014

I felt very comfortable as a new patient.

November 06, 2014

Dr Poor is a great Doctor. I wish that he was able to spend more time with us.

October 30, 2014

As always, Dr. Poor addressed my concerns, and even reminded me about some follow up care that I had totally forgot about from a previous appointment! Excellent!

October 23, 2014

Love Dr. Poor!

October 20, 2014

The only thing I don't like is the fact that I can't, for my health, be lazy - what is up with that??? ;D

October 17, 2014

I love that Dr. Poor really takes his time and really listens.

October 15, 2014

Doctor seemed to pawn off all my questions/concerns to other specialties. I got the feeling if I had a cold he might help but that's about it.

October 14, 2014

Dr. Poor has always shown care and understanding in this and previous visits

October 10, 2014

Dr. Poor is just awesome. We addressed my issue that I went in for, and were also able to address an additional issue that I thought of the night before my appointment. He's the greatest!

October 06, 2014

After several days I had more questions, I asked my questions on "My Chart" and Dr Poor responded quickly to answer my questions. I'm very pleased with the care I am receiving from Dr Poor and his staff

September 26, 2014

September 17, 2014

great care given by provider

September 12, 2014

I felt like he cared

September 02, 2014

Dr. Poor, in my opinion, is an excellent doctor. I really feel like he listens to me and my concerns. Another thing I appreciate is that he is NOT quick to dish out medication. I can't say enough good about Dr. Poor.

August 22, 2014

We love Dr. Poor!

August 11, 2014

Dr. Poor is great. I started going to him because my husband recommended him. My daughter started going to him because we both like him.

August 06, 2014

knew exactly what medical issues I had and worked hard to take care of them

July 15, 2014

July 15, 2014

No negative issues whatsoever. Dr. Poor is involved and caring in every phase of the process

July 15, 2014

This was my first visit to the South Jordan facility. I found the whole experience to be very positive and thorough.

July 03, 2014

Doctor Poor is an excellent doctor who shows deep concern for my wellbeing and I would recommend him to everyone.

June 09, 2014

I have already recommended him to others

May 23, 2014

Dr. Poor is phenomenal. We do medication refill appointments every three months and he is always great to get us in and out without a lot of time wasted. Love, love, love working with him.

May 16, 2014

I really appreciate Dr Poor and his care habits!!! Even though he said I could get out of work for the next week, I still think he is the BEST!!!

May 08, 2014

Dr. Poor is very thorough and does a great job taking time and researching to make sure he is giving the correct information and sending me to the correct places if he is unable to assist me.

May 08, 2014

Dr. Poor was great. He understood that I had a medical background. He didn't talk down to me or make me feel like my opinions and concerns were not valued. He helped formulate a plan of care that incorporated my opinions and concerns. Again, he was great!

April 29, 2014

Simply wonderful

April 24, 2014


April 23, 2014

He is nice

April 22, 2014

No issues. great experience

April 12, 2014

the provider took about 8 minutes and looked at my eyes,throat, ears and nose and listened to my lungs and heart. he never discussed what he saw or heard, no one told me my temperature. he just prescribed medicine and he got up and said hope you feel better.

April 10, 2014

Dr. Poor has been excellent in every interaction I've had. He really does a great job explaining things and giving me all my options.

March 30, 2014

March 29, 2014

Dr Poor is always compassionate and thorough. I appreciate his empathy and attention to detail too!

March 28, 2014

Always very attentive and caring.

March 14, 2014

I couldn't ask for a better experience. Dr Poor went through everything with me and I feel really comfortable about his care recommendations.

March 14, 2014


February 18, 2014

Attentive, thorough and professional. That was my experience with the care provider.

February 18, 2014

Dr. Poor is a fantastic person. I feel like he is easy to reach which is usually very difficult to find in PCPs. He listened to all of my concerns and I always feel like he does extremely thorough exams. I often get appreciation from other Specialty Providers of how great it is that he did the tests before hand.

February 13, 2014

Dr. Poor was very good at making sure he understood my problem and that I understood the diagnosis.

January 31, 2014

excellent visit no issues at all

January 24, 2014

I've been seeing Dr. Poor for years and highly recommend him as a primary caregiver

January 17, 2014

Dr. Poor really takes care of his patients. He is the best!

December 27, 2013

Dr. Poor is always professional and easy/enjoyable to interact with. My only constructive feedback is that the "feel" of my appointments can be described as being part of a very structured process that takes away a bit from the personalized experience where I genuinely feel my doctor wants to collaborate with me and understand my concerns. I visited another PCP this past year on a couple of occasions who operates out of her own little "mom and pop" office. On both occasions it was clear she truly wanted my business. She asked a lot of questions and took time to answer mine. I felt understood and safe. However, ultimately I still trust Dr. Poor, his ongoing training, and I like the MyChart system that allows me to easily track my health history and communicate efficiently with my doctor.

December 27, 2013

Dr. Poor is a great doctor, I recomend him to everyone that is looking for a great family doctor. He is always very informative and helpful, he also makes sure to answer all questions that you have so I never leave his office wondering about anything. He is fantastic, and every MA is so great.

December 16, 2013

great medical provider

December 13, 2013

dr. poor is great

December 11, 2013

Very impressed with Dr Poor. I like that he actually looked at the medical issue and examined it rather than speaking by rote as to what to do. He seems to be a very good clinician.

December 07, 2013

great experience

November 25, 2013

Dr. Poor is a great Dr. The only concern about recommending Dr. Poor are purely selfish :-)

November 15, 2013

I wish he had taken the time to address my depression even though that wasn't my main complaint.

November 11, 2013

Dr. Poor takes a lot of extra time to listen to all of my concerns regarding medication. He types as I talk so he doesn't miss any information in his report. He listens and answers all of my questions and concerns.

November 08, 2013

Dr. Poor is always so great! He is so patient with my wiggly children.

November 08, 2013

He is the best doctor I have been to by far.

October 24, 2013

Dr Poor was very personable and professional.

October 14, 2013

I like a lot that he takes the time to listen.

October 14, 2013

Actually I have already told several co-workers of mine how great the care was.

October 11, 2013

We loved Dr. Poor and will request him and refer him.

September 30, 2013

I am 63 years old and have been to many doctors in my life. Dr. Poor is hands down, the best physician care giver I've ever had. He is always professional, friendly and he listens. This is unusual in my experience with physicians. Dr. Poor validates what I tell him and it appears to me that he bases his medical decisions on what we talk about and what he knows as a physician. Sounds kind of redundant to say it that way but it is rare in my experience and the trust and feeling that someone genuinely wants to understand my issues and help me is really important.

September 23, 2013

Dr Poor was great! seemed genuinely concerned, provided excellent advice

September 20, 2013

Dr. David Poor is an excellent provider, very high caliber professional.

September 09, 2013

Dr. Poor is the best doctor we've ever had. He was prompt so our wait time was short. He took time to answer my questions and explain the problem, how to take care of it, how to avoid it in the future, and how to use the medication. He also printed out a couple of articles for me to take home and read later. He was kind and helpful. We have referred many people to him and will continue to do so.

September 02, 2013

the most thorough exam our son has received in quite some time

August 19, 2013

dr. poor was very good. he was friendly and concerned with my problem and fixed it not only with medication but with suggestions of things I can do at home to feel better and prevent further sicknesses. I really liked him and will ask for him in the future.

August 12, 2013

Dr. Poor is always great!!

August 05, 2013

Dr Poor is SO great! He is very focused and really cares about us as people as well as a patient - is concerned about the whole person!

July 30, 2013

Went in with severe headache. Did not care at all about pain. Never once offered/suggested pain alleviation methods. Even though I brought it up-MD ignored issue!!!

July 05, 2013

Dr. Poor is great. I recommend him to people all the time.

July 02, 2013

Dr. Poor always is on time, concerned and does a great job. I am always recommending him to everyone that needs a Doctor. He is a very good Doctor and knows what he is doing.

June 25, 2013

Dr. Poor was very professional and caring when addressing my concerns. I feel 100 percent at ease.

June 21, 2013


June 20, 2013

very nice experience and would easily recommend Dr. Poor and staff to anyone

June 19, 2013

I came to your facility because my doctor switched offices. I expressed concern about my current medication and suggested an alternative I had learned about. He was not familiar with the medication I was interested in and had no interest in researching and finally said that if I wanted a prescription for what I was requesting that it would have to be prescribed by another doctor. I am very disappointed in that answer and am considering going elsewhere.

June 11, 2013

I waited for 3 minutes to see the doctor, and he only saw me for 5 minutes...

June 07, 2013

Dr. Poor is so great. My son was so sick and sound asleep in the exam room. Dr. Poor was very good to get the information from me and disturbed my son as little as possible.

June 04, 2013

Dr. Poor is very knowledgeable, informative, and trustworthy.

June 04, 2013

Dr. Poor worked with us to find a solution to the problem that made sense.

May 27, 2013

Great doctor. He helped me with problems other doctors had ignored or misdiagnosed. Great care for my concerns and worries.

May 27, 2013

Dr. Poor was very apologetic for making me wait, informative about my new medication, and advisory of its side effects. He was very quick yet thorough.

May 20, 2013

went well

May 14, 2013

Dr Poor was amazing

May 13, 2013

Thank you for the referrals.........thank you and the staff for your thoroughness.

May 10, 2013

the dr. was not very friendly

May 07, 2013

I was with the Doctor for 2 hours and was very pleased with our interaction.

May 01, 2013

Dr Poor was very kind and very knowledgeable. He communicated with me via My Chart to make sure he had all of my tests from my previous doctors.

April 30, 2013

Didn't seem to really know what was wrong with my eye

April 29, 2013

My son loved the doctor, which was a big plus

April 22, 2013

Dr. Poor is awesome! We were there for just a simple medication refill appointment. He made sure all my questions were answered and that we were happy with current medication. He took the time to discuss whether we needed to try other things or if the current med is working. He could have just signed a new script and sent us away.

April 01, 2013

Dr. Poor is outstanding.

March 27, 2013

I had to ask for meds for my nausea, because he didn't offer anything. He told me that he ruled out appendicitis...(which was obvious, seeing as I have already had my appendix out). He basically sent me away telling me to drink gatorade. Didn't check for influenza A or B. I felt like I could have been my own doctor.

March 26, 2013

This was a follow up visit for an emergency room visit 4 days earlier, Dr. Poor did a great job of looking over my ER visit notes and discussing treatment and future follow up to check progress

March 14, 2013

Great experience even thou we were all sick. The staff gave my grand daughters juice to drink. Very nice of them.

March 11, 2013

We've followed Dr. Poor around for several years because we believe in him. He is an EXCELLENT Dr. & ALWAYS takes his time with us. He ALWAYS answers our questions as well & is VERY professional.

March 03, 2013

I really like Dr. Poor. I will be using him as my pcp going forward.

March 01, 2013

I really like and trust Dr. Poor.

February 26, 2013

This was my first visit to Dr. Poor. He is an EXCELLENT doctor. He listened to my concerns and got me the treatment I needed.

February 26, 2013

He was very considerate and concerned with how comfortable I was, I'll definately be recommending him to others.

February 15, 2013

Dr. Poor is wonderful. He took the time to explain everything and answer questions.

February 15, 2013

I really liked Dr. Poor. He was very nice and explained everything so well.

February 14, 2013

Dr. Poor is a very approachable and friendly person. He always seems glad to see you and is polite and reassuring. I have been to several UUHC physicians since I changed my insurance and a couple of them shouldn't be practicing medicine due to the outward lack of interest in my needs.

February 14, 2013

I loved meeting with Dr. Poor. He not only listened, but he was truly concerned about my health issues. This is the first time that a doctor has listened to me. He is very professional and approchable.

January 29, 2013

Dr. Poor is great. He listened to my questions about several diffent things and was great at explaining things on a level I could understand. He is very personable and caring.

January 24, 2013

I had Dr. Gibson until she left. I am not yet comfortable with Dr. Poor yet. I loved Dr. Gibson so it may take me a while to feel as comfortable with someone else. Dr. Poor is very nice but just not there yet.

January 21, 2013

I really appreciate Dr. Poor. He is very professional, concerned and complete.He listens respectfully and is gen homely

January 19, 2013

Dr. Poor was excellent. We felt like we had his full attention and that he listened carefully to the things we told him. We are very happy we were referred to him.

January 14, 2013

Dr. David Poor cares about his patients. He gives you eye to eye contact and listens to your concerns.

January 14, 2013

This was my first visit with this Dr. he was very nice.

January 07, 2013

I expected to be shuffled through as I have my entire adult life by every doctor I have ever seen. What I actually experienced was the most meaningful health consultation of my life. Thank you Dr. Poor.

December 17, 2012

Dr. Poor is a very good emissary for University Health Care and now that it has been some time since my visit, I am well again and I owe it to his diagnosis and care. I had been in at another University clinic several weeks before and what was provided there didn't seem to help anywhere near as much as Dr. Poor.

December 17, 2012

You are lucky to have Dr. Poor as a physician with the U. I have followed him from his previous clinic because I feel very comfortable with him and confident in his abilities. Also, he has an incredible bed-side manner.

December 12, 2012

Dr. Poor was wonderful, he did a great job and made me feel very comfortable being my first visit with him

November 19, 2012

Dr Poor is very thorough when he visits with us and shows genuine concern for our health.

November 19, 2012

My experiences here have been fantastic. The staff is always courteous and helpful and quick to resolve any problems.

November 19, 2012

I felt comfortable with Dr. Poor and am extremely satisfied with his service.

October 29, 2012

We had to freeze a wart off my son's finger. Even though he was screaming and crying, Dr. Poor was very patient in waiting for him to calm down between freezes. I feel like Dr. Poor is going to be great as our new family physician.

October 29, 2012

excellent treatment

October 02, 2012

I've never felt so taken care of by a doctor before. I'm very happy with Dr. Poor.

October 01, 2012

Dr Poor was very informative and pleasant to talk to.

September 10, 2012

He didn't take me seriously because my pain was abnormal and he ran an unnecessary test, then gave no follow up recommendations. I felt like I was just left on my own, still having the problem. I won't be seeing him again.

September 04, 2012

The care provider was very rushed. He did not spend much time with me and was not very available for questions. He was not yet confident in the computer system or patient care.
