About me

Hello! My name is Dr. Neil Mandalaywala. I am thrilled that you have chosen me, along with Kaiser Permanente, to serve you and your family. Kern County reminds me of home, and I am thrilled to be part of this thriving community. My goal is to provide you with comprehensive and individualized care to help you live a healthier and more functional life. Read on to learn more about me to see if I am the right fit for you.

Biography

When I was growing up, my parents always said, “There is no greater joy than that which comes from healing.” I was raised in a small town in upstate New York and come from a long line of physicians. I have always felt medicine to be my true calling. My mother and father both instilled the values of compassion, hard work, and altruism from their dedication to serve an underserved community. I carried these same values with me throughout my education and medical training. I received my medical degree from Albany Medical College in New York. After this, I went on to complete my internship in internal medicine at Georgetown University Hospital before transitioning to physical medicine and rehabilitation training at the prestigious Rusk Institute at New York University Langone Health, where I also served as chief resident. Within my last year of residency, I pursued training in medical acupuncture at the Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City. This allowed me to use complementary and alternative forms of medicine during my educational career. I also found a true passion for treating and managing acute and chronic pain. To further subspecialize, I decided to pursue a comprehensive and integrative fellowship in pain medicine at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle. Looking ahead, I am excited to bring the skills my previous training programs and patients have taught me. I am double board certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation and in pain medicine. Most of all, I am honored to be a physician and continue to live by my parents’ words of wisdom.

About my practice

I am certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. I am part of Kaiser Permanente in Kern County’s Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department and work alongside talented and compassionate physicians, nurses, physical therapists, and psychologists. I have a strong passion for treating both acute and chronic pain complaints that include but are not limited to low back pain, neck pain, headaches, diabetic nerve pain, neuropathic pain, nerve injury, and complex regional pain syndrome. I accomplish this with a multifaceted approach, which include physical therapies, medications, biofeedback, cognitive behavioral therapy, interventional procedures, and alternative treatments. I also coordinate care with therapists and counselors that are tailored to your needs. I perform the following procedures: trigger point injections, peripheral joint injections, nerve blocks, botulinum toxin chemodenervation, and spinal procedures including epidural injections, rhizotomies, and spinal cord stimulation.

How I thrive

I believe that health and wellness come from a combination of physical, emotional, and mental well-being. To that end, physical health has become increasingly important to me. I maintain mine with regular workouts, cycling, and playing sports such as table tennis and badminton. I also feel that it is important to take care of my own mental well-being through relaxation, social dinners, reading, listening to music, watching movies, and spending time with my family. My hobbies include traveling abroad, cooking, and experiencing varying cultures.
