I’ve just completed my second series of injections for severe arthritis in my hip.  Dr. DePalma and his staff are extremely efficient and concerned for my comfort and relief.  A pleasant and friendly atmosphere from the entire staff.  I’ve already recommended Virginia iSpine Physicians several times.  –  GH  June, 2016

For more than 20 years I have been in pain due to a herniated disk. I went to many doctors and was given the run around. After seeing Dr. DePalma on T.V. I decided to make a call for an appointment. Everything went smooth from there forward.

Dr. DePalma gave me an injection and I walked out with no pain. I returned two weeks later for another injection, still no pain and the injection wasn’t needed.

Dr. DePalma took my pain seriously and corrected it. I highly recommend Dr. DePalma for all back needs. For that reason I give him 5 stars for his professional service. – TB Jr. June, 2016

I am so glad I saw your ad on TV. I have been in pain for over 3 years and got pain medication but nothing to stop the pain until I came to Virginia iSpine Physicians and I’m so glad I did. As of my last shot, I have been “pain free”. I have recommended you to others. – J.C.

I feel the injection that I have had to my back has really helped me. I am able to do things that I have not been able to do without any pain now. – S.R.

Often when I reflect on the 10 years of unsuccessfully finding someone to recognize and treat the origin of my pain, I must work hard to push out the resentment and examine the lesson meant for me to learn. But now I feel like, ‘I WON!’ I did find the one person (Dr. DePalma) who correctly identified the source and actually had a method to shut off the pain. – P.O.

Dr. DePalma has been a God send for me. I had pain for so long and nothing seemed to help. Chronic pain that kept me from all the things I love. I couldn’t enjoy my grandkids, walks and travel. The only relief was my recliner and pain meds. I’ve had numerous injections from other pain management specialists over many years with very little or no results. Then I found Virginia iSpine Physicians and Dr. DePalma. He has given me almost total pain relief from the injections he has administered. He never stopped until he diagnosed my problem and then took the measures necessary to relieve my pain. I never thought I would ever walk, travel, play with the grandkids and do the little, every day things people take for granted every day. Thank you Dr. DePalma for my life back. The staff is also wonderful. They have always treated me like family. The whole experience has been more than I ever dreamed it would be.– J.B.

Wow, What a blessing and miracle.  I am 100% pain free after one pain block injection. I have been dealing with pain and pain medications since February 2013 and just one injection has caused me to feel wonderful and sensational! What an awesome practice with true Medical Professionals and a delightful and pleasant staff. This is a 5 star Medical Practice… AMEN! –A.A.

At my 1st visit my pain level was probably 150! Had spent many visits to surgeon and my children wanted a second opinion. We did that. One call to Virginia iSpine at 7:30 a.m. and my pain and life with such began to change. Approximately 6 visits later and I am pain free! No surgery, no down time and the entire staff were excellent and professional. If you have back pain and want to get rid of it, call Virginia iSpine Physicians! It worked for me and will for you.–J.C.

My neck feels a lot better since the Radio frequency Ablation Neurotomy procedure. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant to work with.–M.P.

I can’t tell you how happy I am with my outcome. I have had back pain for 50 plus years and have been almost pain free since my last visit. Having a non-surgical approach is the best possible way I believe to treat this problem. The staff here is great and their only goal is to make the patient better. You guys are awesome.–H.C.

I am so grateful to have a doctor and his staff who takes such good care of their patients with gladness of the heart. Thank you for giving me some relief with the epidural injections. May god continue to bless all you and your families.

I am really grateful to have a doctor who listens to me and has such extensive knowledge. I had some epidural injections which were virtually painless. Just proves the skill and knowledge the doctor has here. The staff is excellent too!

In April of 2013, I hurt my back. I was referred to Virginia iSpine Physicians, per my request, after seeing their ad on television. The pain I was experiencing was excruciating. I could not bend over to put my socks and boots on. I could not turn over while in bed or stand up from a sitting or lying position without being in agonizing pain. Going to work was not an option. I am an Ironworker, a physically demanding job. After seeing you and two weeks of rest with no improvement Dr. DePalma decided that I should have Epidural Steroid Injections. He and his staff were pleasant and professional and saw that I was informed and cared for during this procedure. I left the office around 10am and by 5pm I was feeling a change. That night I slept better than I had slept in weeks.The next morning I got out of bed with no pain. Monday morning I went to work and I could do my job.The guys I work with could not believe how well I was doing. I told them about you and your practice and recommended that they come see you for their back problems. I’m living without the excruciating pain I had and can enjoy my life. I can not thank you enough for what you have done for me. B.W.

Facing an unwanted fusion of my lower back, I searched the Internet for options and found a CBS program featuring Dr. DePalma’s approach to spinal intervention. My first contact with Dr. DePalma generated a great deal of trust in him and his science. After viewing my records, he explained my condition as well as my options in layman’s language. In the words of a colleague, he is “wickedly smart.” Although I bombarded him with questions, he patiently responded to each describing what he could do and not do. Convince I was in the best medical hands I could find, I decided to make the 920 mile round trip drive to Richmond for treatment. After each treatment He followed up with a phone call to assess my condition. His staff was most courteous and helpful. I heartily recommend Dr. DePalma’s diagnostic and treatment process. L.J., PHD

Thank you very much for giving me a new life. You and your staff have made me a whole person again. Your services were professional and done in a timely manner. The stimulator that was surgically implanted is awesome and from that I now have mostly drug free life. Thanks again!

I had seen eight different doctors during the last couple years. None of which were able to help me with the severe headaches I had been having. I had tried just about every medication there is, with no success. I traveled from Florida to Virginia to see Dr. DePalma. With in two visits, (the first one being a consultation), Dr. DePalma was able to diagnose and cure my headaches. After being out of work for two years, I was finally able to return! Thank you Dr. DePalma and all the staff at Virginia iSpine Physicians!!  Sincerely,  G.G.

I have had severe back pain for over 10 years. These past 2 years have been worse. I had to rely on a cane, scooter, walker and finally a wheel chair to get around. I was hospitalized for a week because the pain became unbearable. My pain doctor suggested Dr. DePalma. I saw him in February and had the tests that proved I was a candidate for the injections. The 2 injections were in February and March. Dr. DePalma and his staff are patient-oriented and well-trained. His procedure was so much better than the three back fusions I had. Virginia iSpine Physicians has helped me to become a more active member of society and to hopefully return to activities done in the past.

My lower back pain was keeping me from my normal activities.  My primary care doctor suggested I visit Dr. DePalma, who took care of the problem in two sessions of shots.  Now I look forward to walking my dog every day and have even lost weight.  I recommend Dr. Depalma and Virginia iSpine Physicians to anyone with back pain.

I have had this lower back pain for 14 years and now I feel great. Nice and slow, but great. Thank You, Dr. DePalma.

I am so Blessed by God to have been under his care. He and his staff had a lot of patience with me. With his knowledge and wisdom he had the ability to understand my pain. He took me through nerve ablation procedures and steroid injections.I can say that through these procedures, I now have no more pain, sharp pain, or pressure in my head. His care has helped me to have a much better quality of life, and I am so thankful for that. Thank you so much for your care.

I was recommended by another ortho doctor. I was in this ortho’s office with my husband and was complaining about my back. My husband’s doctor handed me a note and said go see this doctor and you will not have that pain. The doctor’s name on this note was Dr. DePalma. He has helped me so much. I would highly recommend him to others with back problems. He is very caring and kind. I feel blessed to be his patient.

Years after having a lumbar fusion, I developed chronic back pain that greatly affected my daily activities. My orthopedic surgeon referred me to Dr. DePalma saying, “He’s the doctor for you”. He was right. Dr. DePalma performed procedures that have been so successful that I am about to begin playing tennis again, a goal that seemed impossible a short time ago.

Dr. DePalma first treated my facet joint osteoarthritis in 2008. I had been suffering from lower back pain for many years. After diagnosing my condition, Dr. DePalma used radio frequency ablation to heat up a small area of the nerve that sensed my back pain. This procedure decreased the pain signals to my brain. The stiffness and discomfort in my lower back were much reduced. The entire diagnosis and treatment were done on an outpatient basis and the procedures were practically pain free. Relief was immediate and I was able to return to work the next day. I highly recommend Dr. DePalma for spinal pain management.

I have been very fortunate to have Dr. DePalma as my physician. Living with chronic neck and back pain used to be very difficult. However, under Dr. DePalma’s care and pain managment plan I have been able to increase my level of function at work and at home. It has been my experience that Dr. DePalma is a highly skilled physician that spends time with his patients, promptly returns phone calls, and is very thoughtful and compassionate.

Congratulations Dr. DePalma. I wish you all the success with your new practice. I commend you on a job well done with your work and my acheivement with getting back to a normal life with my health. Without your help I don’t think I would be where I am today with my health. May god continue to bless you with your TALENT and your PRACTICE. As long as you are around I will continue to be a patient of yours. Again, CONGRATULATIONS!!
