Dr Malensek sees my 88 yr old grandmother with Alzheimer’s and he is always thorough in her care and listens to the family and caregivers for a total approach to her care.

I was impressed on my mother's first couple of visits to Dr. Malensek. He is prompt and very involved. Later I started to have reservations about some of his recommendations and referrals. Why should my mother need 2 ultrasounds of her heart within 2-3 months when she has a cardiologist and he didn't order any? Dr. Malensek gets caught up in quoting studies, etc. and sometimes seems to lose track of the actual issue. I mentioned I had FMLA paperwork that I would like for him to review and sign. He was upset I didn't mention this when he first came in the room. I told him I had already contacted his office via the patient portal several days before our visit. I wanted to send the paperwork prior to our appointment but they said bring it with me. Dr. Malensek said I didn't seem to be happy with anything (???) and kept saying he had things scheduled, etc. I was NOT asking him to do it then. We left and will not be back

Dr Malensek spends the perfect amount of time with his patients and make sure that they completely understand all instructions. When he comes in the room he has looked over the notes from previous visits so that he is aware of what is going on and ask follow up questions. Great bedside manner. I have recommended him to friends and family. He is a great quarterback and gatekeeper for my medical team.

Unprofessional doctor that was insulting and judgemental. His staff has poor processes in place that don’t work and is embarrassing for them. My only hope is that this review saves one patient, a business professional, from being disrespected by him. Dr. Malensek, please spend the money to update your pharmacy tracking software and office fax number for records release vs accusing your patient of being a drug addict. Shame on you as a medical professional.
