Cardiologist extraordinaire
Dr Malek has been my fathers doctor for decades and when my husband needed a cardiologist I didn’t hesitate to request Dr Malek to be his cardiologist. He saved both my father’s life and my husbands!

Dr. Malek treated me during a heart attack and I'm an ongoing patent. I find him to be extremely knowledgeable, higly skilled, very professional, compassionate and a great listener. Having a heart attack has to qualify as one of the worse events of your life but encountering Dr Malek in the midst of that chaos has to be considered one of the most fortitous. A very impressive guy.....

Dr. Malek is so so skilled. He performed a very complex procedure on my aunt and it went wonderful. Excellent bedside manner too. Hard to find a combo of skill and manners like those of Dr. Malek. Truly if you want your loved one to get the best service, this is the doctor to go to.

I highly recommend Dr. Mikhail Malek as an outstanding cardiologist. Thanks to his skill and experience during two difficult procedures, I benefited from successful outcomes. I found his attention to detail and sensitivity to my concerns to be thoughtful and reassuring and he took the time to be thorough and made sure all my questions were addressed. Dr. Malek is a good example of everything a patient wants and needs in a doctor.

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
