This doctor is the best doctor I have had in Killeen I would never switch him him and his nurse Lydia are the best and care so much about patience you may spend some time at his office but it's well worth the wait to have a doctor that cares about you and cares about your health

This doctor used to be a fine doctor and person. I guess he's gotten greedy now. He cares more about shuffling patients in and out instead of seeing to their needs. My last visit he stared more at the computer instead of seeing what was wrong. I used to recommend him to everyone, but no more. I'll never go back to him again It's sad to see someone like him change the way he did. His staff has no idea what's going on(Too many people), and no ones on the same page.

Dr. Malave has been a great doctor to me. I see many complaints on wait time but it's not often you find a doc that actually takes his time understanding your issue and providing care. If he does it with me, he does it with everyone so I don't mind the wait. How many doctors rush in, listen half way and rush out. I also love the directness he provides although others find it rude, I find it refreshing.

Horrible office to deal with,. The rabid office manager is a nightmare. Dr malave doesn't respond to complaints about his office. Avoid the whole mess. Go somewhere else.

This doctor is a great man, and he cares about his patients. I met him in 2015, I was in Fort Hood Texas helping my daughter with child care. Well once I got in Texas, I signed up for indigent. When I made to him once my indigent kicked in, he ran test and found out my cholesterol was threw the roof. My good and bad cholesterol, was very high and he asked how in the world I was walking around and could have fell with a stroke or heartattack. I think the world of him and his office staff.

Dr Malave was friendly but easily sidetracked. The appointment lasted far too long because he spent a lot of time telling me about his wife, children, new car and TV he just ordered. He sent my script to the wrong pharmacy and though he prides himself on giving out his personal cell to all his patients, when I finally called him after 2 weeks of being unable to get his staff to follow thru on my script with my insurance, he answers and just hands them the phone. We are now on week 3, no script.
