Not really a pain doc

She doesn't provide any long term treatment. She does injections for her husband the spine surgeon and she is friendly but if you need long term pain management, she doesn't do that and she will tell you so

Dr. Lori Poelstra has helped me in pain management for several years. She has made it possible to be functional and pain free throughout the years. All my experiences with her has been positive and I would and do recommend her to anyone in pain and searching for the best. I love how her care and friendliness make one feel like one of her family. I feel safe and that I'm well taken care of by her and her wonderful staff of nurses.
