Dr. Pollina was very understanding and sincere. He took the time to understand my pain and together we planned a course of action. After my surgery, we discussed a plan to lower my medication and eliminate it completely. Everything went well and I am free of all pain medication. Thank you Dr. Pollina.
in Roseville, MI |
Dr Pollina was very empathetic at first. After a couple months he suggested injections. I had a caudal injection which actually caused intolerable pain that lasted for 4-5 days.Following that he convinced me to get a facet joint injection with the same result. I had 3 more injections hoping that it would eventually ease the pain. One day I noticed how much he was charging my insurance-ASTRONOMICAL! The injections did not help at all. I then found out spinal injections are rarely effective.
