Doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He is not a pain specialist it’s but a family dr. Will not write you the prescriptions you need.

I've been seeing Dr. Popkow for almost two years now and he's been great since my very first visit. He's very easy to talk to and doesn't "sugarcoat" anything- he tells it like it is, which I love. Another great thingis that he & his staff are very accommodating if someone has an emergency and needs to be seen on short notice. If I had to come up with a negative it would probably be that the office is very small and outdated, so it could really use a makeover. Also, they share a space with another medical group, so sometimes it can get very crowded in such a small space. But, overall Dr. Popkow & his staff are great! 5-stars!

Dr. Popkow spent about 1.5 hours with me going through my med hx in detail, answering all my questions, doing all the recommended procedures, and making tons of useful recommendations moving forward. By the time we finished up, the rest ofthe staff and office had already left for the day yet he didn't rush whatsoever. Highly recommend.

I had to cancel appt due to appt w/ another Dr & I couldn’t be I. 2 places at the same time... However, Dr accommodated me & appt was Thursday last Patient due to Office being closed Friday, Goid Friday... Thankyou for your expertise & caring for me... It’s been years & my hope was for my future medical insurance to actually HELP me to no avail... However, Dr Popkow has been there for me to get me to this place of 4th Spine Procedure... I have a very complicated medical condition but it didn’t scare Dr Popkow... I have been treated with over 70 Doctors since my life changing accident, January 16, 2006... I don’t know what would have happened to me if it wasn’t for Dr Popkow... I would cry in his office & he referred me to a doctor to help my depression. He takes the time to listen to my concerns & if he can’t help me he refers me to a specialist that can... He has overseen & managed my medical condition & NOW I am going to have stem cell Cervical Fusion above my 2 Level Fusion... Dr Popkow is one in a billion!! I owe him my gratitude & my well being... I know most patients give up, I would have as well if it wasn’t for this GEM of a doctor!! I would & have referred my friends & people that are at a loss of direction to go!! I owe Dr Steven Popkow & Mrs Popkow my life!! He has saved me many times by his positive chair side manner... There is HOPE & my hope is with this doctor that took the oath of saving lives & giving ?? %, actually 120%!! Please call this doctor if you have loss confidence in our Medical System!! Give Dr Popkow an opportunity to treat you & it will repair any negative treatment you have experienced in the past... Thank you for this opportunity to set the records straight. gs

I've been a patient of Dr. Popkow's for almost a year now & every single appointment has been a positive experience. He always takes the time to sit down & talk to you, instead of rushing you out the door asI've seen with other Dr's. His assistant, Christina, is absolutely wonderful as well. She's friendly & helpful, and I always enjoy my conversations with her. I'm happy that I found this place!
