Review of Dr. DePalma

- |

Dr DePalma is focused on me when I’m there. He totally communicates what he is doing, what’s coming next and he is always asking how I’m doing, etc. I am totally comfortable with his approach to my care.

Review of Dr. DePalma

Absolutely amazing that I dealt with chronic and excruciating pain for 9 long months before finding Dr. DePalma. After one treatment, I was pain-free. It is a miracle and I am very grateful. Wonderful, caring and competent office staff to boot. Only wish I had come sooner!!

Review of Dr. Kline

-LK FREDERICK, VA |

Dr.Kline was very disappointed when my first few treatments did not relieve my pain. He persisted and, on the final procedure, he succeeded in helping relieve the worst of my pain. Clearly, he was very happy for me. He listens carefully and his patients and answers all questions. Too bad he is leaving Winchester.

Review of Dr. DePalma

I did not feel that the staff was helpful or supportive. Making appointments was always at least a week away. When you are in pain and no relief is offered, a week feels like a lifetime. He provides no prescription pain medication and if the process does not locate the site of the cause of pain, you may have to wait two weeks for another attempt. They tried to blame the wait on my insurance but even when I checked with the insurance and all was settled, there was a two week wait.

Review of Dr. DePalma

- in Richmond |

My first shot given to me was at the surgery center and it was not even a steroid shot. It was a shot of lidocaine that was explained afterwards as an exploratory shot to ensure the area was correct. $820 later, I was told that it was the patient's responsibility to know their insurance and how much it will cost. Money hungry shot doctor. If the shots work, great, but if not, you will be asked to continue to have up to 4 shots with followup visits in between with the fellow.

I would without a doubt , recommend Dr. DePalma to anyone that needed back or spine pain. I have been going to this doctor for years. He has greatly helped me. I also took my mom to him and he did a great job on her. I dont take my mom to just any doctor. He is a very special doctor.

Review of Dr. DePalma

If his only problem was he has no personality I would give him 5 stars. I was a number to Dr. DePalma and only a number.. When you are in severe pain you need someone who is there for you. This doctor is NOT. He gives you shots etc but if they don't work that's it for you. I saw him once I his office and then at the hospital. When I called in extreme pain his fellow took over. The fellow was leaving and he was interested in leaving.. I think DePalma is into research and that's about it.

It is unfortunate you feel this way. Finding relief from pain can take time. At ViSP, the physicians focus on diagnosing the source of the pain before moving moving forward and this may take multiple... more

Review of Dr. DePalma

- in Glen Allen, VA |

I came to Dr. DePalma having to use a cane to walk due to my lower back and severe leg pain. He correctly diagnosed what the problem was and recommended what had to be done. I am now about 90% recovered, not needing a cane to walk and I look forward to getting to the remaining 10%. Dr. DePalma and his supporting fellows are excellent physicians. Doctor DePalma is very direct and tells it like it is. His staff is excellent, very professional and caring. I definitely recommend I-Spine!
