I had two telephone visits with Dr. Malik. I found that he doesn't listen very well and he makes assumptions based on what he thinks he hears. He got several things wrong with our communication. He kept creating these unrealistic opinions based on his desire to hear what he wanted to hear. He also made judgements on the fact that my memory isn't that great and he was grilling me on things that happened years ago that I didn't have a clear memory of. Maybe it was because it was over the phone but the amount of time I had to correct him about things I have said and I feel he still ignored me was a nightmare and the conclusion he came to based on his mishearing and baseless assumptions are in my opinion unprofessional. I would not ever go to him again.

I found Dr. Malik almost by accident because the first doctor my primary had referred me to was booked, and I'm so blessed that my doctor referred me to him. He is kind and caring and was able to help immensely with my ADHD.

Dr Malik has been caring for me for a couple of years now. He over-sees my therapy and provides medications as appropriate. I cannot praise him enough. He is not only a very competent physician, he is also one of the most caring and compassionate psychiatrist I have ever been to. He takes time to know me and is a genuine human being. I moved to Texas since retiring and I will miss him very much. You are in excellent hands with Dr Malik. His skill and ability to connect are outstanding.

I've been a patient of Dr. Malik's for the better part of a year, and I can say he's the most understanding, efficient, and engaged mental health professional I've ever worked with. Much more than someone who manages medication, he brings real care to each appointment. Other doctors are good at listening, but Dr. Malik is able to synthesize what he's hearing into real-world advice that can be applied in life. He's exceedingly professional and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Malik is an exceptional physician. He's wise beyond words and truly looks out for my mental and emotional wellbeing. Our sessions are more than just medication but life updates and how I'm feeling which I appreciate a lot. The best psychiatrist I've had so far.

My life changed for the better after beginning to see Dr. Malik. Beforehand, my struggles concentrating on work and school felt like an insurmountable obstacle that prevented me from accomplishing my goals in life. Once Dr. Malik was able to diagnose my condition and prescribe the correct medication, my life improved exponentially and I became much more productive. Focusing on schoolwork and my job were no longer difficult, and accordingly my grades improved dramatically.

I would absolutely recommend Dr Malik. Of course his education, knowledge and experience is top of the line, it was his keen ability to listen and connect with all aspects impacting life and health that I appreciated most. He easily explained medical terms and information with clarity. He offered insightful guidance as well as medication management. I felt important as he invested the time and attention to ensure I received the best care and returned to a healthy, and happy life.

I recommend Dr. Malik because he is simplistic and easy to talk to. Dr. Malik takes care of hi patients and really cares about them. I feel like I can talk to Dr. Malik about anything and he takes care of my ADHD medical concerns and also asks about what else is going on in my life at the time of visit. I have been seeing Dr. Malik off and on for over two years.

Doctor Malik is an exceptional professional with a vast knowledge of medications utilized in mental health treatment. He is easy to talk to and works in coordination with other behavioral health professionals to coordinate cognitive therapy (if needed). I have seen many similar Physicians over the years in Florida, Texas and Minnesota (for panic disorder) and he is by far the most knowledgeable Psychiatrist I have dealt with over 20 years, especially when it comes to medication management.
