Patient Comments (1)
in Shalimar, FL |
I have had chronic back pain and nerve damage for over 12 years, so I have seen my share of pain management doctors. Dr Poelstra is the best pain management doc that I have ever encountered. I've had more than a dozen spinal injections over the years and none of them had any effect until I became a patient of hers. She really does a good job of finding the right injection spot to maximize the pain relief. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a pain management specialist.
