Patient Comments (11)

I made an appointment for a routine eye exam and after three cancellations and a two hour wait, Dr. Malik spent two minutes with me. What a disgrace. If someone had spent a little time with me on the phone, I would have gone to someone else.

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!
