Dr went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable in the surgery room. He noticed that the X-ray machine was causing my claustrophobic tendencies to appear. He immediately had the machine pushed away from me. This was very impressive and really meant a lot to me

When I first came to Dr Malhotra I could hardly function with everyday activities. Two months later 80% of my pain is gone. Even the procedure given, a steroid epidural, was pain free. It helped me tremendously. Dr. Malhotra ia very professional and excellent doctor.
