Dr. Poelstra performed micro vascular compression for Trigeminal Neuralgia. The disease used to be called the “Suicide Disease” because of the pain and lack of options for the patient. Dr. Poelstra was an excellent surgeon! Combined with his profound ability to communicate simply and to understand my fears made this surgical experience the best decision my wife and I could have made. Thank you, Dr. Poelstra.

Takes his time explaining procedures and answers any questions you may have. I had a 4 hours successful surgery, so glad to have been directed to him.

Dr Poelstra ordered a test for me, went and had test, then COULD NOT make an appt. to go over that test with me, Andrea in the office wouldn't let me make one, and then was told Dr couldn't help me anymore.
