Dr.mambalam is not the doctor you should see ever. He does not allow thc Evan if you have a medical card. Dr.mamalam prescribed me 5mg 4x a day of needed. I've been on them for 4month and prior to going to the pain management clinic I was referred by my surgeon I was also on perc..same dose...Well today when I went to my appointment he had the nerve to tell me no more pain meds because of thc. Hes a cold hearted man..
in Everett, WA |
He is closed minded, and he comes up with excuses for why he won't perform a procedure. Some of his offices and the labs he uses are not on major insurances and they do not notify you in advance. He is a bully. He makes up his mind for a course of treatment , then it's his way or nothing - meaning no meds. He has a terrible bedside manner. He was not my first pain management experience, so I have some insite of what is to be expected- I do not recommend this clinic.
Terrible experience with this doctor. His bed-side manner is poor. Like the majority of pain physicians, he is focused on keeping patients on pain medication long term. Inside of three minutes he told me my pain is chronic, plan to be on pain medications for the rest of my life, and dismissed researching the root cause of the problem. After asking a question, he interrupts every time and then tells me I don't have time. He then stated if I didn't agree with him he wouldn't help me. Stay away!
