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.

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.

Dr. Poss' Care Philosophy

Patients First

Dr. Poss says...

Thank you for providing feedback or reviewing my profile. My goal is to provide expert and compassionate care to everyone who seeks my advice and treatment. The feedback has been very enlightening and has helped me to become a better physician.

My goal as an interventional pain management physician is to help alleviate pain through the use of minimally invasive procedures and other treatment options.  I always educate my patients on the likely cause of their symptoms, the potential treatment options, and when surgery may or may not be indicated. I hope that when a patient leaves my office they know I am working hard to do what is in their best interest at all times.

I would encourage anyone who has a negative experience to contact my office directly and speak with my office manager or leave feedback on our website or Facebook page - this will allow me to directly address your concerns.
