Dr. Ghalambor's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ghalambor "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."
