Patient Comments (3)
in Tuckerton, NJ |
Absolutely one of the best Doctors I've ever met! Extremely confident and reassuring. After being seen by dozens of dr's with no answers I went to Dr. Ponapan's office. He showed me exactly what he saw on my MRI and said he could fix what was causing my pain. I scheduled my surgery right then and there. Now 8 years later I need another surgery on a different part of my back and I will only let him do the surgery! Dr. Ponapan is a nice guy who cares about his patients. Brianna is awesome too!

Takes the time to fully explain issues and any questions you have. Is very compassionate and did a fabulous job on my fusion. If I have any more spine issues I'll be going back. Would recommend him to anyone
