“Our family *loves* Dr. Shalmi for pain management! He is an incredible listener and artfully walks through possible treatment plans. The office team is efficient and overly pleasant. I’d try and schedule appointments earlier in the day if you’re coming from eastern Long Island and visiting the Babylon office. (Traffic is notably faster first thing in the morning on 27.) 

My favorite thing about this practice? They have an on-site surgical suite that’s run with precision clockwork. A 9:15 epidural had the family in the car at 10:10. (And that’s only because I had to use the powder room, and ask a medication question upon my return.)

This office is on point with technology. Reminders arrive via email if requested. (I imagine their online portal is stellar but I’ve yet to check it out.)”

Thanks Dr. Shalmi! -Irene
