Reviews of South Jersey Surgical Spine Practices
“Dr. Ponnappan’s strong work ethic and professionalism is hard to find in this ever changing healthcare industry. Balance that out with his compassion and humility and you have a first class surgeon that will give you the time and attention you need. I would highly recommend Dr Ponnappan.”
“I feel very fortunate to have found Dr Ponnapan. He is an incredible doctor with an impeccable bedside manner. His care and knowledge of his field have relieved me of chronic back and leg pain! His staff is very responsive and a pleasure to deal with!!”
“Absolutely one of the best Doctors I’ve ever met! Extremely confident and reassuring. After being seen by dozens of dr’s with no answers I went to Dr. Ponapan’s office. He showed me exactly what he saw on my MRI and said he could fix what was causing my pain. I scheduled my surgery right then and there. Now 8 years later I need another surgery on a different part of my back and I will only let him do the surgery! Dr. Ponapan is a nice guy who cares about his patients. Brianna is awesome too!”
