My primary care physician recommended Dr. DePalma to me after having had severe back pain for about 9 months. I had had a MRI and a x-ray prior to making my appointment. I also tried chiropractic care, physical therapy, medication, and exercises prior to seeing Dr. DePalma. I found him and his staff to be caring individuals that wanted to see me improve. It took four injections, but the results have been amazing. I can now function as I did a year ago. I feel like I have my life back!

My experience with Dr. DePalma has been life changing. For five years I dealt with lower back pain due to an accident. I saw over five doctors for my pain. I was sent finally to MCV VCU Sports Medicine and then to Stony Point where I met Dr. DePalma. Since then, I have not seen any other doctors. Dr. DePalma is the best spine surgeon out here. I have recommended him to family and friends, any their response was just like mine. Dr. DePalma is a GOD SEND.

It has been a good experience. My pain has went from intolerable the first 6-mos to manageable as long as I do not irritate the area.

I would highly recommend NOT using Dr. DePalma for any care. Had horrible experiences with scheduling appointments, having to wait over an hour for the doctor to see me in a very uncomfortable treatment room, had to abort a spinal injection because they hit an artery. Do not go to this practice,.......
