Dr. Poisik is very thorough and understanding. He performed a microdiscectomy on my back and I had NO issues whatsoever. His office staff is nice and there is never a wait for more than 10 minutes. I was hesitant having spine surgery, but Dr. Poisik and his staff put me at ease. Dr. Poisik is a perfectionist but is the best at what he does.

Dr. Poisik saved my life! I am so grateful for having him as my neurosurgeon at my recent stay in Westside Regional Medical Center for my Craniotomy surgery. I can say so many great things about this miracle maker but I want to highlight a few: GREAT bedside manor, SUPER CARING and the ability to connect to my situation and explain everything so my wife and I felt extremely comfortable knowing everything going in before and after the very successful surgery he preformed is what stand out as the most important things to share about him. Even his Physician Assistant AJ was super caring, available and helpful at all times making my wife and I feel comfortable and educating us on what’s going on with my progress. I am beyond grateful to him and his team and I would highly recommend him if you need a Neurosurgeon for anything! Thanks Dr. Poisik! -Michael Mack
