Doctor Malik is knowledgeable, professional and courteous and she is an expert in her field. We have had nothing but excellent care and good experiences. She is kind, thorough and compassionate and genuinely seems to care. The staff has been extremely accommodating, friendly and competent (especially Robin). I am very suspicious of any bad reviews and you should be too.

I'm giving a two to Dr. Malik but a zero star rating for her horrible, incompetent staff. If you would like to be treated rudely and have your child's mediations/treatment plans disorganized then by all means, see this doctor. This practice is highly disorganized and the staff is cold and rude. We are extremely happy to have left this practice after two years of horrible care.

Dr. Malik is the absolute best! I don't know what I would have done without her help! I have found Dr. Malik's scope of knowledge is off the charts along with her empathy, true compassion and most sincere care. Five stars? More like five hundred stars! Highly recommended!

Dr. Malik is a great psychiatrist. She sees patients within minutes of the appointment time. She asks questions and actually listens to your answers. She's knowledgable and willing to try a new medication regimen if needed. Her office is cozy. The staff is friendly. The waiting room is comfortable. I would highly recommend to others.

I had an appointment scheduled with the Dr one month out for my daughter. And I missed the confirmation of appointment call which they called 1 day before the appointment and gave me 2 hours to call them back. I was at work and couldn't answer the call in time. So they cancelled the appointment and offered me to reschedule for 6 weeks out. Very upset with their process.
