I wasn't thrilled to undergo an epidural, however, Dr. Poss was extremely patient, taking the time to answer all my questions and concerns and gave me reassurances. All went well, thanks be to God. I am extremely impressed with the doctors and staff of VA Brain and Spine. Professional expertise combined with excellent patient concern and rapport.

Dr. Poss is very personable. He explained the reasoning behind the three options available to me.
Thank you for your response. We value your feedback.

My first visit for evaluation was with Brian and Chantel, they both was amazingly knowledgeable and informative and diagnostically excellent. I am probably one of the more nervous patients when it comes to procedures of the spine but everyone, from reception to nurses to Anthony the tech and Dr. Poss himself were greatly calming and reassuring -- and incredibly competent. The procedure went exactly as predicted and as it proceeded Dr. Poss explained what he was doing, from beginning to end.
in Keyser, WV |
Dr. Poss was very caring and professional. He told me everything he was doing during my back injection and was extremely gentle. He's done injections twice and was extremely knowledgeable in my condition. His staff was very friendly and helpful and talked to me like I was a person. Thank you to everyone at VA Brain and Spine Center for all your help.
