Leo Korotki, MD
Effective Integrative Healthcare, LLC
Dr. Leo Korotki received his Medical degree at the University of Maryland Medical School in Baltimore. Following that he became a resident physician at Sinai Hospital and went on to become both Chief Resident and then an attending physician in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department before opening his own private practice.
Since 1982, Dr. Korotki has been treating people with pain, some debilitating, in private practice in the greater Baltimore Metropolitan area.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is the only medical specialty that specializes in the nonsurgical treatment and diagnosis of pain. Just like any other field of medicine, (orthopedics, neurosurgery, neurology, internal medicine, etc.) to become a specialist you must complete an internship and residency after medical school. We are taught to treat pain by means not commonly used by other physicians.
Conditions that are treated by Physical Medicine Physicians include, but are not limited to, the following: back & neck pain – joint pain – arm, leg, foot and hand pain – numbness & tingling – arthritis – pinched nerves, including carpal tunnel syndrome & sciatica – herniated & bulging discs, fibromyalgia/fibro myositis – headaches – jaw pain (and more). We are also trained in performing complicated but specific tests called electrodiagnostic studies, essential for the diagnosis of certain nerve and muscular problems.
