I have been to several retinal specialists and have never found any to be as thorough as Dr. Malik. She has always made me feel like I am the only patient in the office. She takes the time to answer every question I have and explains everything very clearly. I trust her decisions completely!
Du Bois, PA |
Dr. Malik has been my retina specialist for over two years. She has been treating me and my husband for age-related macular degeneration. She is very knowledgable and one of the most professional physicians I have come across in my life. She is very compassionate and has excellent bedside manner. She also listens to you and takes the time to answer any questions or concerns that you might have. Dr. Malik is outstanding and I highly recommend her.

I would not recommend Dr. Malik, I found her to be very rude. I have never met a doctor as rude as her and one who didn't want to take the time and answer my questions. Dr. Malik has no bed side manner, she only wanted to speak and didn't care if I understood what she was saying and certainly didn't want to take the time for me to ask questions.
in Clearfield, PA |
This was our second visit with Dr. Malik and both were very positive. We were impressed with the information she gave us concerning the procedure, and in a manner in which we understood what was about to happen during, and after surgery. She answered all of our questions to our satisfaction. She shows compassion and concern. Excellent bedside manner. I am sure this will continue at the follow-up appointments we will have post-operatively.
in Oil City, PA |
She was very understanding, and willing to listen to what I had to say. She made me feel comfortable. I like her.
in Shippenville, PA |
Dr.Malik has been my physician and friend during my battle with Diabetic Retinopathy. She has provided her expertise when performing lasers and giving shots in my eyes when required. She goes above and beyond what is expected of her and encourages the patient to always keep a positive attitude. Thank God for a doctor who truly cares about her patients.
