It's truly a sad day when I have to review my former doctor/friend but unfortunately his actions are so egregious I feel obligated to inform others. Dr. Malamet used to be a very skilled surgeon but all of that changed in the past couple of years. Last January he performed a tummy tuck on me (for more than 7 hours) that has left me deformed and requiring another invasive surgery. To add insult to injury my former "friend" has refused to give me my medical file and has forced me to file numerous complaints about him just to get what's legally mine. Dr. Malamet's unethical behavior is not just limited to patient care but it has recently come to my attention that he fraudulently billed my insurance multiple times last year for appointments and procedures I never had. If you've been a patient of his I implore you to check with your insurance provider, review every EOB, etc... And lastly I have personally witnessed Dr. Malamet violate every single HIPPA rule when it comes to patient priva

This Dr. cancelled my surgery 4 times! I was promised a refund and did not get it. I went to Small Claims court and he did not show. I was awarded the Judgment. He has still not paid!!! This started in December 2017 and is still ongoing. Please beware! I am not his only victim. His assistant Jessica will tell many lies to cover and always deflected blame. He has yet to respond to any email or certified letter. I am taking my Judgment back to court.

Unaccredited Facility I had A breast augmentation by this man. Everything wet well in the beginning.The surgery was 8,500.00 Cash. A 7 hours of surgery and waking up to pay more money to the anesthesiologist and unaccredited facility. Days later a hematoma over 230 cc was in my right breast. More complications. Reconstructive surgery I didn't need happened. Now the breast are lop sided. Needless to say when I called for my surgical notes there was none. Never followed up w the areola reduction

This is a sad moment for me, I read all of the other reviews and that’s why I chose this Surgeon. What a roller coaster of bad experiences! First; the price was a lot higher than many other offices but since he was well qualified then I chose to undergo my tummy tuck with Dr M. My fee was $$$10,000$$$$. I am a single mom and took out a credit line for this, I am 45 and waited long enough to decide on doing this. While I was in middle of surgery he claimed to have needed an additional hour an

Im in my early 40's and I was already seeing the signs of aging more and more. He was able to give me a refreshed look without making me look like a different person (my biggest fear). It's obvious that he took his time to do things right. The subtle changes made such a difference. Especially, when I compare my before and after pictures. I will definitely recommend Dr. Malamet to any of my friends or relatives. Again, thank you Dr. Malamet and Jessica. You guys are the best in the valley.

Dr Malamet is a good doctor. We did not have any issues with the Doctor. His office staff on the other hand is completely incompetent and/or dishonest. We were told that if we paid for the procedure up front and the insurance company reimbursed their office, that they would remit the money. After a year of attempting to get them to do the right thing and remit the money that is not due them, I'm going through my insurance provider to force the issue.

I am two weeks post op and can say nothing but great things for not only Dr. Malamet but also Jessica. I immediately felt comfortable with the both of them and they were truly a pleasure to be around. Dr. Malamet has wonderful bedside manner and will make sure you are happy with your results. Jessica is on top of any questions or concerns you may have and responds almost immediately to any needs. I absolutely love these two!!!

Dr. Malamet was amazing! Great experience. I had breast augmentation surgery and the whole experience was excellent. Great bedside manner, very smooth process, fantastic results, and his staff - Jessica - was by far the most incredible person. Would recommend Dr. Malamet and his office to anyone!

Great, friendly bedside manner, huge attention to detail during surgery, pre and post op services second to none. Just a fine surgeon who cares about his patients. I had a breast reduction and a tummy tuck. My breasts are perfect and have never looked better. My abdomen is as flat as a board. I am extremely satisfied.
