Patient Comments (6)
in Edison, NJ |
I did not even see a doctor! I had a 12:30 appointment scheduled on a Saturday. Go there 10 minutes early. After 20 mins a receptionist appeared and brought me to a room and had me fill out a stack of paper work. The receptionist fitted me with a back brace (I thought that was something a doctor would need to do based on my issues) and handed me a Tens unit. I sat there for a total of 2 hours before I walked out! I never saw a doctor or anyone that resembled a doctor. I do not recommend them.

Don't bother. He's not allowed to write scripts anymore

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.

Horrible experience with back pain management
in Jersey City, NJ |
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.
