Came in with lots of pain in my lower back and shoulders from a pedestrian accident. After seeing over ten doctors, he was the only done to offer several treatment options. After the procedures, my pain improved about 70%. He was quick to understand my issues like a expert should. Great personality as well and wonderful staff. God sent!

Dr Panjabi is an excellent pain management doctor. I’ve been a patient for over five years and he has always been great! Sometimes I’ve had to wait awhile for my appointment (he is very busy and takes his time with each patient). Highly recommend!

He's warm, funny, sympathetic, keeps up with the field, and at 56, is at the peak of his skills. He's incandescently bright, NOT a universal trait in doctors. Pain specialists are under threat from hero wannabes who must invent new rules OR expose how useless they are -- a problem faced by all bureaucrats. Panjabi panicked when a nearby clinic was shut down, a normal reaction when one's livelihood is threatened. It was hard to witness his terror, but he's fine now. He was & is a man to trust.
