How We Are Different
How Are We Different From Other Pain Management Clinics?
What do you look for when you’re choosing a pain physician? Do you want a doctor who takes the time to get to know you and can manage your needs? Or a doctor who answers your questions thoroughly and maintains firm medical knowledge that will make you feel most comfortable? At Interventional Anesthesia & Pain Management Clinic, we are compassionate about your health and promise that we will treat you as an individual with unique needs.
Sadly, very few chronic pain patients know that today’s injection therapies will help alleviate their pain and minimize their need for pills. Too many have been treated by doctors who prescribe pain medications that may be addictive and only mask the pain without treating the source.
Dr. Malek and his interventional pain management team at Interventional Anesthesia & Pain Management Clinic in Pasadena, CA are dedicated to reducing or eliminating your pain while reducing your drug use to very little or without any drugs or major surgery.
If your goal is to find alternatives to reduce, or completely eliminate, the use of narcotics or other addicting classes of pain drugs, we have a lot of advanced choices and alternatives for you to choose from. We provide effective medication reconciliation methods for best management of controlled substances for pain control and combine medications with our multidisciplinary approach to maximize benefits and minimize side effects. We will take very good care of you, give you hope and help you return to life, work or school as best we can.
Who We Are & What We Do
Dr. Malek is a specialist in interventional pain management and is committed to ensuring the best medical care when you need it most. At Interventional Anesthesia & Pain Management Clinic, we use a multidisciplinary approach, which means that patients benefit from various opinions and treatment options. We are dedicated to serving the community, preventing disease and offering preventive care and treatment of pain disorders.
Dr. Malek, a board-certified anesthesiologist licensed in California through the American Board of Anesthesiology, understands the emotions that relate directly to pain management and works with each patient individually to ensure the best possible experience! His clinical interests include cancer pain treatment and interventional pain management techniques to block the intrusive pain that patients have spent so long trying to manage. He understands on a deeper level what it is like to see someone in chronic pain and has a specific passion for treating pain directly. This stems from his experience and belief that proper pain management is essential and beneficial to patients and their families during an already tough time.
