Of all the doctors I have gone through in last 15 years, by far Dr. Mallvaram has done more for my comfort than anyone else. He explains what he is doing in procedures and even giving you a shot he tells how it will feel. I highly recommend him, he is so kind and has your welfare to make you as pain free as possible.

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.
