Worst Dr. I have ever been to. Went for anxiety disorder and was treated so disrespectful. Treating me as if I'm dr shopping and I was a drug addict. I would never reccomend this dr or his assistant Ms. Bark to anyone seeking help for anxiety or depression.

I would not recommend Dr. Malka to anyone. I have been suffering with chronic migraines for 2 years and getting botox injection for them. My previous Dr. didnt take my insurance so I had to find another one in Pinellas county. Dr. Malka wrote off my migraines as just heaches and refused to give the botox injections, leaving me to suffer another 6 months and multipe ER visits because of him. The office staff was always kind and on top of things.

This "doctor" saw me while admitted in the hospital for 2 min. I did not ask to see him but was still billed over $700 for his "visit".

Avoid at all costs. I've never left a doctor's office feeling so humiliated and insulted before.

I want to thank Dr. Malka for his complete understanding of my problem. I just moved here and he was competent,, conciise and had a solution nearly immediately. I do not understand the barrage of negative reviews,. I am assuming he possibly has no tolerance for the ignorance that is too often displayed in this area..

This guy is an absolute quack. Stay away. He could be dangerous. We were referred to him by a doctor in the ER for follow up after my daughter suffered a concussion playing soccer. He told us her symptoms were the result of emotional issues not the concussion. It's been three days! He spent less than 90 seconds examining her and got barely any history. He was rude, accusatory and had my 16-year old daughter in tears. His license should be revoked.

Their billing manager must be very inexperienced! She can't figure out how to bill insurance company even after I gave her all pertinent information numerous times.

Dr. Malka is an arrogant, pompous man. My niece was diagnosed with ADHD prior to being seen by him. He said she wasn't and that she only had behavioral problems. He prescribed her Seroquel. She ended up having a seizure. The dr there said that is one of the side effects. Went for a follow up and he stated that Seroquel doesnt cause seizures. He walked out of the room. Her mom received a certified letter saying that we threaten him, and that he would turn us in to the DEA for being drug seekers.

Worst doctor I've ever seen. I have Frontal lobe epilepsy, and have seen a neurologist prior to seeing Malka. When I told him theven different types of seizures I have... He scolded me for using medical terms and asked if I was the doctor. TERRIBLE bed side manner. He then asked if I ever thought about Xanax or other anti anxiety medications... Knowing that I have Narcolepsy. (Narcoleptic patients can't take benzos.. period)

Don't waist your time. Malka cancelled an appointment for my son 1hour prior to appointment time without a reason, my son missed school and my wife and I had to take the day off from work to make it to this appointment. If I would have cancelled 1hour prior to appointment tome I would have been charged for the cancellation. I want to know where I can send my bill for his cancellation. I was offered another appointment but it would be in another month. Thanks for the delay in care for my son.

Malka is a pompous, incompetent idiot. I was a paramedic, therefore I knew medical terms for my symptoms; he didn't like that. He basically blew me off as a drug seeker. I was there for neuropathy, NOT meds. I then saw Dr. R. Shah, in New Port Richey-10 stars), he ordered MRI's, Nerve Studies, etc. Diagnosis? Nerve conduction delays in ALL FOUR extremities, and lesions on my brain. When I told the receptionist how Malka treated me, she said, "That's because you know know more than he does!"

This is a waste of a doctor; unfortunately, I am a stroke victim at 58 years young. I have to be under Medicaid since I cannot work. I was told I needed to see a Neurologist because of new symptoms of dizziness and went to Dr. Malka in Palm Harbor. Saw him once and was told I may never be well again. His Nurse Linda Bark stinks too – I have told her repeatedly the pills that are prescribed at NOT working. They are completely uncompassionate and rude.

Doctor doesn't care about the patient. Nurse practioner spent one appointment telling me how I was going to die. Since she didn't feel it would be the headache nothing would be done. She stated today, even if nothing is going to ever be done, he always puts down for the patients to schedule another appointment. Staff is great even though they are publically ridiculed for trying to help the patients. Worse office I have ever been in due to the level of care and the condition of the Hudson office.

Rude, ask a question and doesn't let u answer, interups constantly. Ordered MRA and never had a follow up appointment with him. Office couldn't find my report so they text him and he had it with him. He told nurse to tell me MRA was fine and he wouldn't be giving me any meds. That was it! I got charged $50 and paid my deductible $600 and don't know anything. I write dr and explained I would like a follow up with him and never heard back. Very arrogant ADHD man that needs help himself.
