I highly recommend Dr. Poelstra! The first 2 back surgeries he performed on 10 Aug 2017 were completely successful! I am still in recovery from the neck/spine surgery performed the day after Thanksgiving 2017. I am following his instructions & am looking forward to complete recovery! The surgeries he has performed on my back & neck not only took away debilitating pain but have given back dependable use of my legs, arms & hands!
I had 2 back surgeries on my lumbar spine. Same area. Feb and Sept of 2016. It's now Nov 2017. I am in so much pain! I looked up my last visit on their portal. It mentioned something about post lumbar laminectomy syndrome. I was never told this. I had to look it up online after I read this. I was supposed to have had a referral done to a neurologist for neuropathy after the surgery. I've emailed and called and left a message to remind them. They have never done anything about it. I feel like they make you feel so good about them before the surgery but don't care about you afterwards. It really makes me sad because I put all my trust in the Dr and staff. I feel very let down.
If you are looking to entrust your spine to a surgeon then look no further than Dr. Poelstra. I was terrified of having cervical fusion. I now wish I would have had the surgery done a year earlier. He has is so very kind and is extremely skilled. I had no dysphasia, felt amazing after surgery and my scar looks like it was done by a plastic surgeon! Thank you Dr. Poelstra for giving me quality of life back! I am looking forward to playing with my kids, being able to work out and being pain free!
I highly recommend Dr. Poelstra to anyone experiencing back pain! I was miserable for months until seeing Dr. Poelstra and Jonathan. They were extremely professional and courteous. I was very nervous as this was my first every surgery and the entire staff made me feel as calm as can be. I am 5 weeks out of surgery and my recovery is going extremely well. I was told by many people to my surgery in Birmingham or Atlanta, so I could see the best surgeons. I think we have one of the best right here in Santa Rosa Beach. Thanks Dr. Poelstra!
