“I’ve been in pain for 20 years and until Dr. Puppala, I lived with it. After his injections, I am feeling better with every one. I have already sent a friend to him. I look forward to being pain free as I continue to see him.”



“Before the shot, my pain was a “9.” Now after the injection, I feel numb from the waist down with no pain. I would like to follow up 2-3 days.”


“This experience at Alliance Spine and Pain Centers was remarkable. I was in excruciating pain for the past 4 days and got recommended to visit this clinic. I was amazed. I came in with horrible pain and 30 minutes later, I am not limping anymore and feel no pain whatsoever. Dr. Puppala and his staff was very caring, helpful and informative with all of the procedures I would expect. I would recommend to anyone suffering with lower back or pinch nerve pain. I will definitely be back. I am so grateful for this clinic.”


“Since I had the procedure, my lower back pain has improved at least by 90%. Mobility and quality of life is also much better.”

“My pain has decreased some from the 1st block and I am hopeful that it will be decreased, or hopefully eliminated, with this second one.

“I received the trial for the DCS two months prior and besides the pain from the implant I could tell the pulsing would help a good deal. The permanent DCS was put in on August 26 and aside from the pain of the surgery which has almost ceased over the last few days it is helping lots. I was standing and sitting bent over forward 24/7 and to the right 24/7 I. Now I am almost standing and sitting with my back almost all the way up to normal for the first time in 5 1/2 years other than the injections given which didn’t last for long. I still sit to the right side and stand this way also, but just to be able to sit and stand out word is tremendous and I am so very thankful for this machine. Thank you again!”


“Having the trial stimulator was the best thing that Dr. Puppala has done for me. I would recommend it to anyone that is having lower back pain and tailbone pain. Without it I have been miserable and in pain. My pain medication hasn’t been helping to cease my pain. I will be hoping my insurance will approve for me to get the full-time simulator.”


“I thought the idea of having the simulator put in for a year at which time I had leg and back pain so bad that I couldn’t live my normal active life. I decided to hurts so bad that I had nothing left to do, so I tried it. Paying left the same day it was done. I highly suggest anyone in such pain, do it. It’s wonderful to feel no pain.”


“My experience was awesome. I could sit, stand, walk, work, and I would say it took away 90% of the pain.”


“I am more mobile now that I have my stimulator than I was before it was done. I am hoping he gets better and better in time.”


“Since coming to CPM, my pain management “journey “has been wonderful. I have spinal cord stimulator implant in 2013 but it was constantly shocking me when it was turned on. The experience was so bad that I literally had to stop using it. After speaking with Dr. Puppala about my situation, he told me about the Boston Scientific Stimulator and asked if I would want to try it. That was the best move I made and trying to control my pain. It deafly allows me to take less medication which makes my life much better!”


“I feel so much better by getting the shots and treatments given to me by the pain clinic here in Carrollton. I am capable of spending more time with my grandchildren, and I am enjoying my life so much more. I absolutely love the doctors here.”

“In April 2015 Dr. Puppala began a series of injections, RFA’s, and epidurals on my lower back. It has changed my life. I now live mostly pain-free, and my walking is gone from a noticeable limp to a normal gait with no limp.

Now since the ablation, I can get down and play with my grand babies and I am very excited about my life.”


“Thank you so much. I feel so much better then before I came in. It’s wonderful. Not much pain at all.”

“I came in for a cervical mbb injection. The results were very positive. I could feel a 50% improvement immediately.”


“I was awake during all my procedures with Dr. Puppala and I am now pain-free. If I have a complaint is that he failed to play Indian music for me while being worked on. I hope I never had to have his procedure again but if I do I will return to Dr. Puppala.”


“For years, I couldn’t sleep on my left side. After SI joint procedure, I can sleep on my side and walk short distances without terrible pain.”


“This procedure has helped tremendously. When I came in, I was having headaches so badly I could hardly see. I had to visit the ER a few days before. I received at least 60% relief and still have relief. I understand this is a diagnostic test but it has helped with the pain.”


“Before I have this procedure I was having severe pain on my right side of my face, mostly in my mouth area. The pain was like the most horrible stabbing pain I had ever experienced. Dr. P gave me an injection on my temple on the right. I have been pain-free for over a year, and 14 months later, I am back for another injection. Hopefully I will have the same results as I had from the first one.”

“I’m a patient of Dr. Puppala and I received an ablation on my right shoulder after having several blocks/trigger point injections. The previous injections help some, but the ablation helped 50 to 60% more. I have much more mobility and less pain. I would definitely recommend it.”


“My experience was awesome, and everything I’ve done works 100% every time. Everybody is very nice and makes you very comfortable. Awesome place to have my procedures done.”


“I entered OR1 and was asked to lie flat on my stomach. Each and every single step, from beginning to end was explained to me. Dr. Puppala then began procedure. I did not have sedation and felt very little at all. During procedure, the most that I felt was a small “jolt in my arm. But absolutely no pain throughout the procedure. I was amazed, as I expected that “worse.” I think each and every staff member for their time and attention. Very professional and attentive! Awesome! Pain 7/10 to a 0/10!”


“My back has been hurting for five or six years. Went to multiple doctors but no luck. Then I found Dr. Puppala and he found the problem in my back and went in and burned the nerves and in three days, I had 100% pain gone. It has still been gone almost one year. Then he fix both my shoulders. They have had 100% relief for about 14 months. Then he worked on my nerves at the base of my skull. He burnt those and my headaches were gone after about 3 to 4 days. I have a huge fusion in my neck and he has worked on that diligently. I couldn’t make it without Dr. P.”


“I was taking Oxy and Hydro Codon before I met Dr. P. I have been to sports medicine doctors and chiropractors for years. After seven years of medications, Dr. P started nerve burns and epidurals and after approx. 2 years, no more pain meds. Injections helped so much I can hunt and weld again like I was in my 40’s again. Doing things with the grandkids and my children out doing physical activities with them. I will be 59 this year.”


“I feel 50% better after the shot.”

“As I come out of the procedure, my headache has went from a seven to it two.”
