I have taken my daughter to Dr Malinas for 2 years. She has very complicated mental health issues and I have total confidence in his decisions. He takes time to listen, is very empathetic, and has an outstanding knowledge of mental issues and medication. I highly recommend him!

I'm a patient in my 50's. My psychiatrist, Dr Yasaar died unexpectedly. I very much liked him and the care given. I never thought I could replace him. I met Dr. Malinas and after my 2nd visit to him I knew I had been blessed with the right doctor! He cares, is gifted in his field, listens to you, lets you participate in your care, and is so compassionate! You don't find many doctors like him anymore

Malinas is a charlatan and a fraud who should have his medical license revoked. He is aloof and completely non-committed to serving patients. A family member was referred to Malinas for treatment. Following misguided and inappropriate therapy this patient had to be hospitalized for an ongoing deteriorating condition which evidently Malinas did not recognize. Worse, he was unavailable for any consultation or advice during this hospitalization, which is a breech of professional conduct and ethics.
