My Husband had to have surgery for colorectal cancer, needless to say we were both confused and scared. Once Dr opened the door and walked in I knew he was the right one to assist us during this journey. He was very direct and left no stone un-turned as he addressed not only my husbands questions but mine also. To this day he is still with us during this battle, I would not have it any other way. Truly is the best at what he does. All the hospital staff even commented on how we were lucky to have Dr Malellari as our surgeon. God has he own way of putting the right people in our paths.

Sept. 2019. Dr Malellari performed a sigmoid resection to remove damaged intestines, using robotic technique. He and his surgery team did an excellent job and I left the hospital after a two night stay. Everything about the surgery and his office staff has been positive. I would highly recommend Dr. Malellari for cholo rectal issues.

I was referred to Dr. Malellari when I found out I had Stage 3 colorectal cancer. I was very concerned about treatment and considered going to Cedars-Sinai. I prayed and prayed about treatment and felt comfortable moving forward with Dr. Malellari as my surgeon. I was not disappointed. What I like about him is that he is direct, accurate and to the point. He always answered my questions and I never felt "rushed" out of the office. I also like that he showed up early to see me every day I was in the hospital. After my surgery all of my margins came back clear. I feel like his attention to detail makes him an excellent surgeon- and that is very important when you're dealing with cancer. I also felt like he was progressive (no heavy meds and they had me walking right away which helps). I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Malellari to anyone. His bedside manner is good too, but that was just the icing on the cake as far as I was concerned.

I had to have a portion of my colon removed. My doctor recommended Dr. Malelleri. My experience with the doctor and his staff exceeded my lofty expectations. Dr. Malelleri was very patient explaining the procedure and the outcome was better than I had prayed. I would recommend him for any family or friend and heaven forbid if I would need further procedures, Dr. Malellari would be the first person I would call.

Dr. Malellari took his time to explain to me everything that needed to be done along with what I should expect after surgery. While you could tell he had a schedule to keep at no time did I feel rushed when asking all the questions I had. While I pray I never need to have his help again I would trust him if I needed to.
