Upon my daughter's recommendation, I brought an xray report and consulted Dr. Pokhrel because of a chronic, severe pain in my wrist and hand. She did a thorough evaluation and ultimately gave me two injections plus a brace. I've had three months of relief. Great people skills.

Worst experience with any doctor and doctor's office! I called to make an appointment and was informed that my records from my out of state surgeon must be mailed to the office. I later confirmed that my records were received but was told Dr. Pokhrel "took them with her". I asked that the office call me with an appointment. Nothing happened. I subsequently left 3 messages requesting an appointment. No response from this doctor or her office.
