I found the doctor to be extremely quiet, passive and vague. I originally went to him because my primary care physicianhad him on a list of referrals. What turned me completely off was the fact that I have no doubt in my mind that this doctor cares more about billing than his patients. I had 3 separate treatments that he administered. After the 2nd treatment, he clearly told me that I would not need an office visit as long as I signed off on it. When I required the 3rd treatment and in immense pain and needed to get in right away, he and his staff kept pushing for an office visit. When asked why I need an office visit after I had already signed the form as well as common sense would tell anyone that there is nothing that changed because I told him so and that an office visit would do nothing from one day to the next, he and his office staff finally agreed to schedule me for the injection the next day. Several weeks later, I received a bill in the mail for the treatment and an office visit... An office visit that never occurred and no examination was ever given. Thinking this was a clerical error, I contacted the billing company who eventually in turn contacted the doctor and returned a call to me advising me that the doctor was standing with his decision.

Dr. Malhotra is amazing – extremely knowledgeable in his field and tremendous bedside manners. I found him to be a great doctor who treats his patients with the utmost professionalism. I appreciate him being very attentive to my concerns and addressing each one to put my mind at ease and most importantly, help relieve my pain. Beyond actually meeting a Dr who cares and knows his stuff, you get treated to an awesome staff who is always on point and the nicest medical office. I was beyond pleased with my visit and would highly recommend anyone go out of their way to see Dr. Malhotra.

Dr. Malhotra is one of the kindest and calmest doctors! He saw that I was experiencing great back pain and was able to help me in less than 24 hours. He went out of his way to see that I had an MRI and was able to have a procedure to help me with my pain level when the other doctors I had called couldn't see me for weeks. He has been so kind and understanding through this experience. Great Doctor!
