Dr. Mallavaram is a wonderful doctor and is straightforward and did an excellent job on my procedures. I love him and his staff! I think all the negative reviews are from people who want medication passed out like candy. Thank you all for your care and kindness!

Dr. M subjected me 3 times to an invasive procedure that no other doctor, including a world-renowned surgeon at U.C. Med, has been able to explain; his reasoning remains a mystery. It was always painful, but no damage was done. His lack of medical expertise was more shocking on the topic of second opinions, an accepted step for a patient to take, supported and even suggested by most specialists. He was deeply insulted. He is, sadly, unfamiliar with both medicine and healthcare decision-making.

I was referred to this doctor for pain management after a large work injury that required two separate surgeries over 7 months. I saw Dr. Mallavaram a few weeks before my 2nd surgery. I called to speak with him 1 week before my surgery and waited 3 days for a call back and then was only contacted by his rude receptionist. After surgery I ended up in the ER with the physician and my surgeon trying to reach Dr. Mallavaram to no avail. After I was released the rude receptionist called me and ask

He was very nice, but not what I call totally encouraging about the procedure. The procedure went well. The shot lasted for about 5 weeks. My right hip is still in a lot of pain. I was hoping and praying for better results. My issue is: I didn't call back after a few weeks, but the office never bothered to call me at all to check to see how I was doing. I sincerely feel that they are lacking sadly in this regard.
