Dr. Mali’s office was fast to return my call. An appointment was set at his earliest opening and I was given instructions as to when to arrive and was taken back in a short time. Procedure was done and I was given time to make sure I did not have a bad reaction . He and his whole office staff are pleasant, Professional and I trust them 100%

Bobby D Carver – Dec 03, 2020
Dr Mali saved me, no exaggeration. I've been to Duke and UNC and they couldn't alleviate the pain in my lower back plus I had other pain running down the inside of my legs. One visit Dr Mali alleviated my SI joint pain (injection) and figure it out my secondary pain was in my hips.

L W Hendricks – Jul 25, 2020
I've known Dr. Mali for a number of years and feel very comfortable with him. He's professional and personable. I had nerve block injections in my knee and a hip joint injection during my last appt, yesterday. Dr. Mali takes care to make sure he administers the shots with as little pain as possible. He speaks very kindly while doing so. I'm pretty tough so I can take needles, but his bedside manner should help the most skittish get through the procedure much easier. I'd recommend him, and I have, to anyone I know.
