I went to Dr. Poulter for a second opinion. He was kind and genuine. He took a lot of time with me and listened to all of my concerns. I trust him and if the time comes when I would need a surgery I would certainly go to him.

I had an LI STABLE burst fracture resulting from a car accident in Nov. of 2018. UPMC treated me horribly and basically discharged me to me the care of my family members. I'm from Indiana, but couldn't attempt ride home to Plainfield, IN for almost a month! Dr. Poulter and his partner Michael Skonieczka did their own imaging and said I had an UNSTABLE L1 burst fracture. UPMC really messed up. He set up a surgery for some titanium fusions sets, and now I am on the road to recovery. ?? them!

August 2018 Doctor Greg Poulter and his PA associate Michael Skonieczka are worthy of the very highest praise for their professionalism, compassion and surgical skill. A year ago, I was practically an invalid, barely able to walk 100 yards in severe pain from spinal disc degeneration and scoliosis. One year later, I am again walking straight and largely pain free; recently completing an over 4 mile hike with no problems. I can enthusiastically recommend Dr Poulter and his team at Ortho Indy.

Dr Poulter came highly recommended to me by a family member. He and his staff have been nothing but life savers. His brings conversation down to a non physician level and takes as much time needed to answer any questions and respond to any concerns. He makes very complicated things uncomplicated to understand. The level of care he provides is second to none. I always feel like I am in capable hands. Once I am out of his care, it will be very bittersweet.

Spends an incredible amount of time answering any questions, doing all he can to alleviate anxiety and make the patient and their family as comfortable as possible. Truly listens to the patient, regardless of age. Excellent bedside manner.

Don't waste your time if you have a condition that requires more than a simple shot or requires him to to actually look for what is causing the problem. After one visit with him, I was told (by phone) to seek a second opinion. I wasted nearly 3 months being off of work just to be told that I have carpal tunnel. I went to see a real spine surgeon who diagnosed me instantly and correctly and I am now 2 weeks away from having surgery to repair what is damaged in my neck.

Amazing doctor! Very happy with every step of my surgery process from the preparation, day of, and weeks/months after. Dr. Poulter and his team took great care of me. I would recommend to anyone in need of a spinal fusion surgeon.

Dr Poulter has operated on me twice now and could be happier. His bedside is just as good as his surgical abilities as I'm back at work being a Firefighter?paramedic when I was told by other Doctors I would never be able to do my job again. Thank you
