I have been under the care of Dr. Malalis who has been diligently trying to find the exact cause of my orthopedic problem. She is kind, compassionate, caring and determined.

in Sycamore, IL |
Dr. Malalis is an excellent Doctor and I highly recommend her to anyone suffering from pain for the following reasons. She is very technically proficient and knowledgeable in current practices in her field. In addition, she and the staff she chooses, have the kindness and empathy to deal with patients that live with a lot of extreme pain. She has helped me with injections in my back for arthritis and in my head for migraines. I can't thank her enough for what she has done for me.
in Rochelle, IL |
She is a compassionate doctor who truly cares about her patients. I have been seeing Dr. Malalis for over a year for arthritis in my lower back and now recently to help diagnose the tingling and numbness in my hand. She listens attentively and spends time getting to know me as a person and what my health goals are. Every procedure is explained in detail in terms that I can understand. I have never felt rushed and just another patient, she is there for me and gives me her attention.
in Monroe Center, IL |
I have been under Dr. Malalis's care for a little over two years. When I have lower back pain flair ups, Dr. Malalis is quick to diagnose, treat, and correct my lower back pain. With her treatment suggestions and protocols, I have experienced pain relief that has allowed me to get back to my busy life. She listens to my concerns and explains my conditions in terms that I can understand. I would suggest to anyone experiencing back pain to see Dr. Malalis. I'm glad I have her on my team.
in DeKalb, Illinois |
Dr. Malalis is a compassionate, sincere doctor. She has treated my daughter for over a year and I would highly recommend her. She offers other treatments if unsuccessful with one. She is one of the most patient and kind doctors that has treated my daughter's condition. My daughter wholeheartedly agrees with me.
in Sycamore, IL |
I am an over 4 year patient of Dr. Malalis' diagnosed with degenerative disk disease and spinal arthritis. After receiving a summons for jury duty, I informed the court that I am unable to sit for extended periods of time due to my condition. The court advised that a simple letter from her stating that would exclude me from duty. She refused to write the letter stating that she was uncomfortable writing it. I must conclude that she is uncomfortable with her diagnosis and will not stand by it.
