      I felt very good coming to this office. My prayers was answered and she did a beautiful job for me today. I will return for my back condition. She helped me to walk again and I full of tears.
      in Walden, NY |
      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.

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
