Patient Comments (12)
Littleton, CO |
Healthcare needs responses, None from this provider absolutely nothing. As a healthcare professional I am appalled that this provider acts as if he is above anyone else. Staff is very Lax. Do not go to this provider if you are looking for compassionate care.
Colorado Springs, CO |
Doesn't explain much nor seems to eant to take more than 10 minutes with you. Also, quite aloof. If I'm agreeing to a treatment, I want it explained why, what the risks are and what it will do.
Lewisville, TX |
Dr. Malinky listens and really cares. He continually searches for new solutions. As for the office experience it is HORRIFIC! The front desk speaks to you like you are an idiot. The MA cannot do math and then always blames it on the patient for not taking care of their health. Every time I go in there I get spoke down to until you talk to the doctor.
St Paul, MN |
My first appointment to receive an injection was challenging, the front office was packed and I waited over an hour for my procedure. The staff was apologetic and explained there was an emergency. Once I was seen the procedure was fast and effective. I began having relief from chronic low back and hip pain within 12 hours, even though the expectation was a few days.

Front office made a big deal about being on time and being sure to make appointments or they'll charge you anyway. I showed up on time and waited over an hour...wonder what I should charge them for MY time

Dr. Malinky is a very competent doctor specializing in interventional pain methodologies. He has decreased my pain levels and meds by a mean of 60%. I couldn't be more satisfied with the level of care that I have received.

Very professional, yet personable and friendly. He and his entire staff made me feel very comfortable on a really nerve wracking day.
Aurora, CO |
Honestly took a while to get my chronic pain under control. 5 years with them and after basically being forgot about was tricked into signing discharge papers. They completely lied to me. I have extreme pain daily . They really made my life hell still suffering and quality of life sucks currently . Maybe because my insurance is medicaid and the money hungry Dr didn't like my copay not being in the hundreds like it seems to be for the elderly. I will never see any Dr from that place they suck....
in Colorado Springs, CO |
He is amazing. Just amazing.

Dr. Malinky is fantastic. He is patient and unlike many doctors, he will take the time to listen to you and brainstorm ideas to get you the treatment you need. The P.A. Adam Haeffner is also a fantastic physician. Dr. Laub, however, is just awful. I don't like to be negative, but this guy just reminded me why I let myself suffer for years. He is cocky, thinks if it works for him it would work for me, and he takes no consideration into the truth, only the disrespectful opinion he already had.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
He listens and then suggest alternatives which do work, thank you Dr. Malinky

Dr. Malinky is VERY EASY to schedule with.His bedside manner:FANTASTIC.He describes everything in detail and clearly.The STAFF at IPM are AMAZING.When I walk in I am greeted by name and they are already done with my check-in before I even reach the counter (3 feet from the door)! They are strict which any pain management facility SHOULD BE and HAS TO BE by law, yet they are VERY FRIENDLY and COURTEOUS.I have NEVER WAITED more than 10 min, probably 5 minutes avg in the 6-10 times I have been. A+
