Courteous, professional. Dr. Poonia was able to review MRIs and explain medical diagnosis in a straight forward, easy to understand manner. He was able to prescribe a program for mitigating my cervical stenosis, that brought relief and improved my condition in response to ongoing inflammation and back and neck pain.
