I have received excellent care with Dr. Zalkind. After several procedures that provided little relief from severe back pain due to Scoliosis and Osteoarthritis, I was referred to Dr. Zalkind. The combination of a diagnosis from a neurologist at NEBH and Dr. Zalkind’s recommendations of treatments, I have been able to function in my daily activities. I am grateful for her kind, accurate, thorough, and well received treatments...With sincere appreciation, I would highly recommend her services.

Best doctor I’ve had for knee arthritis pain. I’ve been to sports med dr’s, knee specialist dr’s and surgeons. They never mentioned pain management treatment. If anyone has knee pain contact Dr. Dana Zalkind and you’ll believe in miracles.

I've had a few bad experiences with other pain management Dr's.. I haven't with Dr. Zalkind. I was nervous the 1st time that I had a Facet Rhizotomy done. That was quickly put to rest because she explained everything before, during and after the procedure. She is personable ,caring and is very good at what she does. The people she has working with her are top notch. I've been a patient of her since 2013.
