For the 7th year in a row, Patricia S. Poling, M.D. and Robert A. Poling, M.D. have both been selected by Castle Connolly as Top Doctors in Southwest Florida. Every year Castle Connolly Medical of NY partners with Gulfshore Life to recognize the top doctors in Collier, Lee and Charlotte Counties. Castle Connolly uses a physician led research team to select the recipients based on the doctor’s educational and professional experience. Both doctors are primary care physicians that practice together in the Poling Medical Center on Marco Island. “Doc” Patty is board certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. “Doc” Bob is board certified in Family Practice.
The Polings reside on Marco Island and have 4 children. Two will be attending Tommie Barfield School and two will be students at the Marco Island Charter Middles School. Both the doctors are active members of the community. They can be found in their spare time participating in local fitness events as a family. They try to live by example by practicing healthy habits. They feel privileged to be honored by Castle Connolly. “There is no greater joy than to help our neighbors.”
