Our Family thought Dr Pounds and his team work with a wonderful bedside mannor and listens to the problem. He and his team make sure you understand what is going on and will take time to explain if you dont understand the procedure.

Was sent to Dr. Pound because my case was difficult r/t having a horseshoe kidney and what was thought to be renal cell carcinoma. He was very straight with me, answered all my questions and got me in to have my surgery 2 weeks sooner than I was told it would be. Good bedside manner. Ended up with minor complications and was able to get in to see him when I needed to without a long wait. His office staff was also very helpful.

Staff was helpful and courteous. Wait time was minimal. Answered all questions and did not make me feel rushed. Knowledgeable about my problem. Would recommend him to anyone.

Would not recommend him. Was led to believe there would be a different outcome of the procedure and removes more parts than was discussed in pre operation interview.

I had a horrible visit to Dr. Pound and was very disappointed. He was extremely dismissive of my kidney stone pain and seemed annoyed at the questions I was asking about my own health. I know that hes primarily a cancer doctor and that cancer is more serious than kidney stones, but if he doesnt want to treat kidney stone patients then he shouldnt see them. He made me feel guilty for worrying about stones because his cancer patients were obviously more important and I was taking time away from them. He also referred to the middle-aged women (older than he was) working in the office as --girls,-- which I thought was unprofessional, disrespectful, and a tad bit sexist. I also dont think he reviewed my records clearly, because he didnt even know which side the stone I was concerned about was on. I had to remind him. He was overall just hostile. Would not recommend. Ill probably find a new urologist soon, one that realizes that kidney stone pain is some of the worst pain a human can ever experience.

Dr. Pound was so disrespectful to me yesterday. This was my first visit with him and it will be my last. He contradicted everything I said about my issues. I know more about my body in the 16 years with these issues and getting them checked every three to four months before I moved to Mississippi. . Everything I said he wanted to contradict me and disagreeing with me. I know my body and what has been done to me for the last 16 years. He doesn't. Very unprofessional and irritating!!!

You are fine if you dont ask him questions. If you try to be an informed patient, look out because he will treat you like dirt. I would not recommend him to ANYONE.

His nurse and staff are professional, considerate, caring people. Dr. Pounds has no consideration or compassion to work in the field of urology from my experience with him.

I am very disappointed in Dr. Pound and his staff. My husband was told at his appointment that if any test results were abnormal, he would be notified. Not only did he never get a copy of his test results but he also was never notified of his abnormal results. Six months later, after calling his office ourselves we were notified the test results were abnormal. The time we spent at our appointment with Dr. Pound was neither satisfying, comforting or reassuring. I would never recommend this dr to anyone.

I was referred to him for a questionable adrenal tumor on my left kidney, so he suggested an open flap just in case it was cancerous. Well it came back that it was an abcess that was inoperable now I am scarred for life and have developed hypothyrodism behing the surgery that he performed, and because it is 6 years after the fact that I am being diagnosis even though my current doctor found the link I cannot even sue him, but I just wanted to share my story, because when I told him he laughed and said -- well at least you dont have cancer-- is that a consulation I dont think so I wonder how he would feel if is wife was 55 150 pounds with a belly that is scared and battered looking like she was pregnant for the rest of her life.

I have gone to see Dr. Pound on a couple of occassions. I only returned to see him due to a denied request to switch doctors. I think he is knowledeable however he is very rude and and insensitive. I would not recommend him to anyone at this time due to his abrupt and insensitive way of conveying information. I was not impressed or pleased with my visits and I will not be returning to see him.

My incision from a renal tumor herniated a month after surgery. I wouldn’t recommend this guy. Not able to pass a physical for 5 years, remaining unemployed.

Extremely condescending and rude. Mentioned insurance which in my opinion if you are worried about insurance open a private practice, don’t work for a state funded hospital.
