It was extremely fortunate for me that my family physician referred me to Dr. Mark Yelle when I described my pain to him. I was no longer able to take the pain medication that had kept me able to function and I faced returning to pain. Dr. Yelle has given me treatments that allow me to resume my life without the constant spectre of pain. I am very grateful!
Dr. Yelle listens patiently, then asks questions and knows quickly and exactly how to locate the painful areas. He explains his procedures as he goes. He never rushes but takes the time to help me to understand what he is doing. He is also on time for his appointments. Members of his staff, Kaneshia and Edna, whom I have met are always pleasant both in the office and on the phone.
I live in a 55+ community of 143 homes which is less than 2 miles from his new Wake Forest office. It is very convenient for a senior citizen like myself who wants a nearby doctor. I am so pleased with the entire Carolina Pain & Spine practice especially my favorite doctor, Dr. Mark Yelle!
I've been seeing Dr. Shrimanker for some time now and can really see an improvement. He's so easy to talk to and doesn't rush with treatment. Some doctors want to get you in and out! Not Dr. Shrimanker, he's on top of new treatments and has several options. The facility and staff are wonderful. I've had six spinal procedures, two of which were fusions. I've had spinal issues for 30 years and tried just about everything that can be tried. you will not go wrong visiting Dr.Shrimanker
My wife has been a patient with BROOKIE WOODS for four years. If we did not have her talent and knowledge my wife would probably be confined to a bed in a rest home. She has minor pain from major back and neck surgery . Brookie has controlled her pain so she can stay at home with little pain. If god put an angle on this earth, she is one of them. We thank her from all our hearts. Outstanding staff and Doctors. Joyce Staton, Wake Forest, N.C.
I have been a patient since 2012 due to failed back surgery. Dr. Williams-Toone has been wonderful in addressing my increasing symptoms from deteriorating back. She has listened carefully to the history of the onset of the nerve pain which was a result of one of my back surgeries and helped me reduce the constant pain. I feel she has been in my corner all the time and genuinely cares. She is responsive to any new concerns. I highly recommend her practice and the rest of the staff.
Outstanding staff and service. We have seen CP&SPINE for five years in regards to extreme back pain after surgery. The group has controlled my extreme pain with extreme knowledge of my situation with my pain management. Outstanding staff. Five stars. God blessed us with BROOKIE WOOD and the other Doctors. Five Stars
I have been in almost constant pain and discomfort for 4 years. I've been to other doctors who did not take the time to listen. I saw Dr. Choudry and he LISTENED to me, evaluated the problem and helped me with one visit. He is VERY PATIENT and KIND and he made me feel much, much better. He is truly an AWESOME doctor and I APPRECIATE everything he has done. - James Springer
I have seen Brookie Wood a number of times as she works with my pain specialist Dr. Choudry. I have been impressed by her professionalism and her caring approach. She is well qualified and knows the answers to all of my questions. She is always concerned with any issues I bring up and she takes the time to answer all of my questions.
Dr Choudry is great he has helped me with my knee pain so much he is also very personable and cares for his patients. I was very impressed with dr choudry
Dr Choudry saved my life. With numerous spine issues due to a horseback riding accident when I was 16, my spine has been causing so many different types of pain for 45 years. I kept adjusting my lifestyle over and over. But when the sciatic nerve pain began I needed serious help. After trying a few treatments, Dr. Choudry performed an epidural. He knew exactly what to do and it has worked wonderfully. That was 4 years ago and still no sciatic pain. I do have other pain issues managed with medication by my general practitioner. I know, definitely, should that sciatic pain return, I will call Dr Choudry. The staff and nurses were very nice. My only problem was when I wanted a sedative to calm my nerves prior to the procedure, the nurse could not get an IV in, which hurt considerably. I had to tell her to stop. She was very embarrassed that she could not do it. Otherwise, everything was fine. I continue to be very grateful for the treatment Dr. Choudry administered. I would see him again. Thank you Dr. C... from the bottom of my heart.
June/July 2018 - My mother came to town visiting from another state and had 4 fractured discs in her spine and in immense pain. She is unable to take pain meds and we were referred to Dr. Marc Yelle. He was able to perform 2 successful Kyphoplasty surgeries and my mom has her life back. My mother suffered for 3 months with chronic pain, weight loss and inability to move until we met Dr. Yelle. Dr. Marc Yelle was extremely compassionate and patient with my 83 year old mother. Anyone that has legitimate reasons for needing a Pain Specialist, Board Certified physician should see Dr. Marc Yelle. My family and I highly recommend him.
