Leran – Jul 28, 2021
Dr. Pociask treated me like a drug seeker (I'm not, I'm scared to go on opioids, but it's the next line treatment in my disease). Dr. Pociask told me that I have two options, I can doctor shop or buy off the streets!!!! I do NOT recommend Dr. Pociask, for a pain doctor, he had ZERO compassion. And not because he wouldn't prescribe what I needed, he had absolutely NO interest in even pretending to want to help. He wouldn't look at studies, wouldn't prescribe what my referring doctor asked for.

My wife has been seeing Dr Pociask for over 5 years now, and she would not trade him for any pain management provider anywhere. He is always professional, and always does his best to take care of her pain issues. He listens to what she has to say, and genuinely hears her concerns, and does his best to minimize her pain, and give her some quality of life that her spinal issues have taken away. He has been a life saver for my wife.

Dr. Pociaski took more time with me than any other pain doctor I have ever seen in the past and I have seen alot seeing as though I have been dealing with pain for over 40 years. His bedside manner is fantastic and he really put me at ease about my condition and gave me hope that he could help me.

Dr. Pociask has been a blessing and is a class act. I have always felt he listens to my concerns and addresses them accordingly. I have referred him to family who are equally as happy with him. Very happy I have been able to find a doctor like this!

Charlotte, NC – Feb 19, 2019
I would highly recommend Dr P. to everyone. He actually took the time to explain what was wrong with my back, even bringing out a spine model and explaining everything in layman's terms . He then went over everything he was going to do to help me. Only had one other doctor years ago that spent that much time with me.

Not sure why he only has 3 out of 5 stars, but I have found, he listens to what I say. He suggests courses of action. I feel he spends enough time to accurately judge my problem, not rush in and throw a med at you.

Kim Hatem in Indian Trail, NC – Aug 10, 2017
Dr. Stephen B. Pociask and his staff are by far the rudest, most unprofessional and uncaring group we have ever dealt with. Instead of caring about my husband's pain management (he is a former athlete who worked physical jobs his entire career), Dr. Pociask and his staff choose to treat to profile my husband instead of treat him. While our doctor in CA and his staff were amazing and dedicated, we now have the exact opposite experience here in NC. Absolutely awful people to deal with.
