Dr. Pope is THE best pulmonary doctor ever. Not only is he determined to turn over every stone, he is determined to find answers. His demeanor is off the charts and he has a ton compassion for each and everyone who walks through the door. He takes his time and doesn't rush through appointments. If he runs a little behind....I have absolutely NO problem waiting to see him. The staff is always on the ball so things flow pretty smooth and efficiently and I've been to both Tolland and Enfield location's. Not only do I see him, but my mother and cousin also in his care. Hopefully that tells you just how good his reputation is.
