Dr. Poonia and his team are great doctors. I recently consulted with their practice for my knee pain and Dr. Poonia was able to quickly diagnose the cause of my pain and quickly set me up for treatment. I am able to do so much more of my activities now that I was unable to do before because of my pain. If you are experiencing any type of pain these are the doctors to see!

I have treated with Dr. Poonia for many years for my chronic lower back and chronic knee pain. I see he has some one star ratings which I would like to counter as in pain management many patients do get upset when the doctor does not want to prescribe them high dosages of opioids and then they go and leave such reviews. Believe me when I say Dr. Poonia is one of the best doctors I have ever come across. His bed side manners are amazing and he spends ample time in explaining everything thoroughly which no doctor ever does. I had lost my insurance for a few months and he continued to see me and treat me until I was able to get insured again at no cost to me. He goes to the extent of offering patients transportation services if they are not able to come to the office on their own. My chronic pain is so much more manageable because of Dr. Poonia and his amazing team at Interventional Pain Management & Ortho Spine Spine Center. I highly recommend him and his practice to my family and friend

Money, money, money. That’s what he cares about, not patients. If you don’t want to keep doing pain procedures he gets rid of you as a patient.

I was suffering from chronic pain. I took many treatments and medicines, but no improvement was seen. Then somebody suggested to me to go to a pain management center for the chronic pain treatment. Professional and experienced doctors treated me in a calm way. I did not have to wait any more for the consultation with the doctor. The staff was very cooperative, experienced, and helpful. Now there is no pain.

Dr. Poonia was very helpful with my back pain following a car accident. He was very clear in his treatment and after a few visits I felt much better. I was nervous at first about getting a procedure which required an injection, but it worked very well. My only mistake was waiting 2 months to get it done.
