Dr. Joel is a godsend. I have seen Dr. Joel for 4 years and have had only the best experience. I have a complicated case. Dr. Joel addressed every issue with compassion and care above and beyond previous doctors. I went from chronic pain and little hope to now being on the world. If you are looking for the very best I encourage you to see Dr. Joel. Dr.Joel is a 20 on a scale of 1-10!! Thanks to him and his team I am happy and feel like I have my life back.

Dr Joel has given me hope for the first time in the five years that I’ve had peripheral neuropathy. I’m in pain twenty four hours a day and until I came here, never thought it’d be possible to find any relief. I have tried everything! I now believe that there is a way to manage my pain and I will be able to have a quality of life again. He’s given me the ability to start living and not surviving! Thank you so much Dr Joel!

I've been a patient of Dr. Joel's for 6 years. I'm a women who has had accelerated arthritis, stenosis and back problems since my early 20s, from a genetic inheritance. I'm in my 40s with back problems of seniors. Problems with walking, limping. I've followed him and his team to Pain and Spine Physicans of Atlanta. I'm treated with compassion, dignity and understanding. The staff are very compassionate and helpful at every level. My quality of life has been restored because of him and his team.

Dr Joel is a five star doctor. He is patient and great listener. I've lived with chronic pain from shingles for two years. He went above and beyond to help me. I highly recommend him. Also, his staff is helpful and friendly.

Dr. Joel is a very caring, compassionate doctor and has been a godsend. I had been suffering with debilitating lower back and leg pain for three years. In my first meeting, I knew he was the right doctor to help me. He listened, asked questions and spent the time to really understand what I had been going through. Then, he recommended we try some intermediate procedures before even considering a more invasive procedure. Finally, I have experienced relief from my pain. Thank you Dr. Joel!
