I was awake during my procedure and am now pain free. If I ever need help with back pain again I will return to Dr. Puppala.

I came in with A LOT of pain – around a 9 – and Dr. Puppala suggested we go ahead with an epidural. Within minutes my pain was down to 0, which had not happened in a very, very long time! Thank you Dr. Puppala and staff for taking great care of me!

I, Theresa R, was in so much pain, but after the procedure my pain isn’t there. I was a little nervous, but I didn’t feel any pain when Dr. Vin was doing the procedure. Thanks for everything I felt so comfortable and the pleasant feelings with the staff. I recommend everyone to come here. Thanks again.
