I was referred to him by an ER doctor when I fell and broke my leg. I found him to be reassuring, kind and told me what to expect and what to do to help myself thru it. I think he is wonderful. Nice office staff too.

Just wanted to reach out and thank the doctor and his staff for their service. In 1993 I broke my leg playing high school football. Dr. Pospisil went above and beyond his duty to help with my recovery. 24 years later on my 40th birthday I ran and finished my first marathon. The quality and caring mentality of him and his entire staff will always be remembered in my heart. Thank you.

I visited Dr. Pospisil's office because of the pain I had in my lower back. He is such a great doctor and he has an amazing staff. He really helped me with the pain and now I'm much better, all thanks to him.
