Care Philosophy

Our Multi-Speciality team of doctors include specialists from the fields of Pain Management, Orthopedics, Neurosurgery, Anesthesiology, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Neurology. We specialize in treating painful conditions of the neck and back, as well as other parts of the body. Our providers focus on not just treating pain, but diagnosing and eliminating the root cause of pain.The best treatment of chronic pain requires studying what causes it, how the body reacts to it, and how different medications and procedures reduce or eliminate the pain. Because of the vast number of conditions that cause pain, our philosophy is that it is best to have experts from different medical/surgical specialties under one roof in order to craft the most effective treatment strategies for our patients. This alleviates much of the burden of visiting multiple doctor's offices to resolve problems. Our practice is made of Board Certified multi-speciality physicians who are open minded to workingRead more

I Loved Dr. Malik! I only got to see him once. That was in Rockville MD. At the current pain clinic I'm still going to after 10 yrs. He left this pain clinic. Sorry to say he left because, he was a true class act. He was such a great listener and exactly what to put me on has soon as I was done talking. He was right on target. I wish he would have stayed at this clinic. I would highly recommend Dr. Malik to everyone who needs help with out of control pain everyday. He's one of the best Dr.'s.
