Patient Comments (6)
in Louisville |
Dr. Arthur L. MalkanI in my opinion is the best knee man in the region. He has replaced both of my knees and I could not be happier.
in Louisville, KY |
I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Malkani for shoulder tear. First available appointment was over four weeks out. One week before my scheduled appointment, the office called me to reschedule since he was leaving early. Next available appointment with him was another five weeks from the time they contacted me to reschedule. I can understand if the doctor has something come up, however, I don't think the patient should be made to wait another five weeks to see him. Office staff was rude.
in Speed, Indiana |
Listened to what I had to say. Took X-rays, had mri, examined my knee and told me my options. Together we selected best option. Had excellent therapy and recovered very fast.
in Louisville! KY |
Terrible experience with him. Doesn't listen, doesn't return calls (even when he tells you to call), I went to him about an injury-his practice is a joint replacement factory for seniors and he doesn't want to waste his time on anything else. Awful.
in Brandenburg Ky |
Had my right knee replaced 6 1/2 years ago..back to work in 6 weeks..great experience...planning on the left knee replacement this year..not a worry in the world about having the procedure! He is great!
in Brandenburg, KY |
I have had two knee replacements with Dr. Malkani. When my physical therapist found that Dr. Malkani did my knees, he said this is going to be easy. I was back to work in 3 weeks and 4 weeks after the two replacements. I was running again in 5 weeks. He is something special.
