Although I spent my childhood in Los Angeles, CA; My parents decided to move back to our home country, Iran. I was raised seeing lots of pain and suffering in my war torn country. Soon I was determined to do my best to make a difference in helping those in need; leading me to study medicine. After studying in the fields of Internal Medicine and then Anesthesiology I was truly happy to choose the field of Interventional Pain Management as my full time career to be able to use my skills in order to make a difference in people's lives.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ghalambor "My philosophy is simple: Educate my patients about possible pathologies that may be the cause of the Pain, try to narrow down the diagnosis and find the exact source of Pain; and then either stop or alleviate the Pain using cutting edge technologies available to us thanks to progresses recently made in the field of Interventional Pain Management. 

I have found educating my patients and explaining the process of getting to the root of painful conditions; and then let them decide which path to take in the treatment is the best way to approach at time frustrating Pain conditions.

Knowledge about the medical problems significantly reduces the anxiety and frustration; and being involved in the decision making process makes patients more empowered and comfortable with the treatment plan."

in Allen, TX |
I felt very comfortable talking with Dr Ghalambor, he was very knowledgeable about pain relief. I was looking at the implant procedures which would hopefully eliminate my need for the medication or most of it. Throughout the process everything was fully explained and discussed. He even gave me his email for easier communication if I had any questions, or issues. The entire process was great! Great doctor, nice and friendly staff, beautiful facility. Highly recommended.

After two back surgeries and still experiencing leg pain when walking and standing, I was referred to Dr. Ghalambor. After thorough exam and review of surgery report and recent MRI, he injected the lumbar area and I had almost immediate relief. He followed up with another injection a week later. I am now able to play golf and resume my wood turning hobby with no pain in my leg. I am overjoyed to say the least. Highly recommended.

Dr. Ghalambor helped me get my life back 2016. I have been suffering from a herniated disk in my low back. It was hurting everyday, all day and starting ruin my life. Doctor after doctor only would recommend surgery. I cannot afford to be out of work for 6 months. Through Dr. Ghalambor treatments with injections I'm now able to function now without severe pain. I have my life back and avoided a surgery! Please give Dr. Ghalambor a chance to treat you before you have surgery! You won't reget it!
in Allen, TX |
I will definitely recommend Dr. G to anyone needing pain relief. In addition to being very personable, his ability and willingness to take the time to completely explain the reasons for my pain, the probable causes of it, and his proposed treatments as well the reasonable expectations of the outcome were very thorough and understandable. The outcome of his treatments far exceeded what I expected.

Dr Ghalambor has been a godsend. After struggling with chronic pain due to my autoimmune disorder, my rhematoligist referred me to him and it has really helped! I was a little iffy about seeing a pain dr due to my past experiences with them as the one I previously was seen by just wanted to push prescriptions and did nothing to help me outside of over medicating. He listens and explains things very well and his staff is amazing.
in Oak Lawn, IL |
Dr Ghalambor is one of the nicest most knowledgeable doctors I have met and I've met a few! He has great bedside manor and I feel he is very honest in his plan of care. I felt very comfortable with him and honestly felt like I was in great hands as a patient!! Highly recommend the guy.
