Mount Prospect, IL |
He is the best. I have had several hand issues - all of them have been resolved.
in Palatine, IL |
I last saw Dr. Pomerance 5 years ago, but I did see him on and off for a period of about 6 years. I saw him on separate occasions for my shoulder, elbow and wrist problems. I did end up having surgery on the wrist , and the elbow and shoulder problems were treatable with a couple injections and therapy treatments. He's highly knowledgeable, and the only reason I came online to look for him was to refer him to someone else.
