A personable, patient Doctor. Apparently did a good job placing my stent. Was determined to lower my cholesterol with statin dtugs which made me so miserable I finally refused them and quit worrying about it.. I haven't been sorry. I was hositalized at Palomar for the stent when I caught a male nurse stealing my morphine. Unsure what to do, I told Malek thinking he should handle it. He brushed it off as if I was mistaken. I wasn't. I believe that was irresponsible. I no longer see him.

DR MALEK: He did my Stent Surgery, and has been my Dr since 2008....I love DR Malek, he is the most patient kind and conscientious, Dr that I have. I wish all my Dr's were the same.. He made a very difficult and scary situation for me, so much easier, because of the way he dealt with me. I am a nervous "Nelly", and this would have been so much harder for me..if he had not been there to guide me through all of it...... Carmen Kimble
