I had my first visit with Dr. Kaushik and it will be my last. I had to change drs for my pain management due to a insurance change. She hardly looked at my records that I had brought in from my previous dr. She didnt do any of the proper manipulations of an impaired SI joint and said my pain was muscular. She said next time I come in we are going to do trigger point injections. My previous dr. told me do not let her do any injections on you. Never Again!

Excellent! I am an RN (w slight OCD tendencies) & extremely particular about my care. Dr Kaushik is meticulous, knows exactly what she's doing, & performs procedures w precision. She has done quite a bit of teaching w me, prescribed medications for me, & given me both facet & epidural steroid injections many times. Each and every thing she has done for me has been helpful, w absolutely no negative experiences or side effects from treatments. Shes a rare find, who I hope never retires!
