      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,.......

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
