Doctor Polepalle have relieve in one year all my discomfort of lower back pain I experience and live with for 5 years. I recommend Dr. Polepalle to all my friends and family she is a blessing.
in Wallkill |
Doctor Polepalle preformed a nerve ablation on the right side of my back. I immediately had pain relief there. It did not relieve the pain on the other side-that is the next procedure. Dr. Polepalle explained everything in detail, and was verbally supportive during the procedure. I was in a twilight sleep for most of it. You're woken up a bit so that you can tell her if you are feeling any pain that you should not be feeling. I would recommend this procedure to anyone experiencing back pain.
