    I've been with Dr. Pommier since 07. Had a number of surgeries, have all well. I've been able to hang on with carcinoid and neoendocrin cancer and he's always pointing me to each directions. After infusions on a study at Stanford, I'm in a lot better shape and Dr. Pommier is filling me in on if and when I'll ever need any future infusions and meanwhile, is keeping me on track with CT's. He looked at those the other day, seemed impressed, is willing to help me on a fistula, to organize correct and I got to get back with him and start setting up dates. I'm quite happy. His .bed side manner's the greatest and*

    I think Dr. Pommier is wonderful. He's been great to me coming way from out of town and taking care of me and I have complete faith in him. And he's done, and his staff has done, everything they could to make this work out and I'm scheduled for surgery, which is what I was hoping for and he's been extremely helpful. Thank you.

    Dr. Pommier had a wonderful demeanor, was kind, understanding and had excellent knowledge of pancreas and stomach function. I would highly recommend him and his excellent team. He was able to find solutions to issues I've been dealing with my whole life including GI issues that resulted from my pediatric pancreatic neuroblastoma.

    This man is what all physicians should aspire to. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient friendly, & deals well with supporting family members. I cannot say enough good things about him.
