      Dr. Malik says

      I want you to be confident that if you ask me to see you, I serve only you. Your interest and preference dictates what we decide to do together.

      I enjoy my work and don't feel that I come to "work" everyday. It is fun and rewarding.

      I derive immense satisfaction in receiving your positive response but that is not the reason I became a doctor. Sometimes folks are unhappy because they did not get what they "wanted" from the visit. I want to hear if there is an area where my staff or I performed below your expectation. This allows us to improve our process to help the patients that come after you.

      In our business it is not uncommon to run late for a variety of reasons but you can be sure when I am seeing you, I will spend as much time as you need. You should not leave my office with unanswered questions.

      I can never promise I won't miss a diagnosis or potentially make an error but I will do my best every time to be thorough, accurate and compassionate.

      Worst experience of my life - last case and he was running late. Treated like "a piece of meat." Bruises on abdomen. He rushed off afterwards - showed photos to my spouse but not me as I was in PACU. I'm offended that he would give more info to lay spouse not patient w 20 yr medical background. No followup call post screening colonoscopy procedure to check on patient status.

      Dr. Malik is a brilliant, caring physician who really listens to me before advising, recommending and prescribing. He keeps up with the latest developments in his area of expertise and is always learning how to best treat his patients. His attitude and demeanor clearly exemplify his warmth and dedication. I've been a patient since 1999.

      Dr. Malik has been my gastro dr. for 10 years. I trust him 100% with my gastro health. He cares about his patients and make sure they get the best care available. He also took care of my husband when he was sick until his passing. I would recommend Dr. Malik to anyone who needed a caring and wonderful doctor. I'm hoping his practice gets an office closer to out area, Portsmouth or Suffolk.
      in Chesapeake, VA |
      Having been under Dr. Malik's care at his previous practice, I knew no matter where he relocated, I wanted to be there. His knowledge and expertise is excellent. His attention to detail is very thorough and his interest in all your questions and your answers is truly genuine. He will find the best and most beneficial treatment option for you. No matter what procedure you may need, or any health concerns you may have, you can be assured you will get the great care you expect and deserve.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Malik's Care Philosophy

      Compassionate, state of the art care. I respect your preferences in choosing how to manage you health or disease. Your best interest is the only interest I will consider.

      ×

      Dr. Malik says...

      I listen to you because in your symptoms is where I find clues to the diagnosis. I do tests that will help improve your health or provide you with peace of mind. Your best interest is my ONLY interest. I encourage you to review the material on the internet and ask questions. Do not leave the office with any unanswered questions. 

      Some common conditions treated are: Crohn's, Ulcerative colitis, hemorrhoids, gastrointestinal cancers including pancreatic, esophageal and colon, liver diseases, abnormal liver enzymes, GERD, Barrett's esophagus, GI bleeding.

      Dr. Malik says...

      I specialize in complex therapeutic endoscopic procedures but f I don't think a procedure is going to help you, I will recommend against it. I will give you options with risks/ benefits to allow you to reach an informed decision.

      While colonoscopy is the most common procedure I perform, it is commonly feared and avoided by healthy people at serious risk of missing avoidable colon cancer. I perform high quality and safe colonoscopy.

      I perform upper endoscopy (EGD)  - usually to diagnose GERD, GI bleeding, abdominal pain etc. I perform very careful screening for Barrett's esophagus and treat dysplasia in Barrett's using techniques like endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA). 

      Therapy for hemorrhoids is often misunderstood and I match the treatment to your condition to get you maximal benefit.

      Some examples of the more complex procedure I perform are: ERCP, endoscopic pancreatic pseudocyst drainage, removal of gall stones from the bile duct, stents in various locations to relieve obstruction from cancer, control of bleeding, placement of feeding tubes (PEG and PEJ), complex esophageal strictures, dilation of achalasia.
