What People Say About Dr. Ramon Malaya, MD

Dr. Malaya is a first rate doctor who took me in when another surgeon had treated me horribly. He listened and took as much time as I needed to explain every step along the way. He called me twice in one day to give me updates on my procedure details because he was going above and beyond to squeeze me in within 48 hours of meeting him bc I was so miserable. I would recommend him to anyone!

Absolutely one of the best doctors I ever had. Great listener, explained everything I wanted or needed to know, went out of his way to make appts to specialists and follow-ups himself. Very personable and great at what he does. Can’t say enough good things and I’ll leave it at that.

Absolutely horrible. My daughter went in with an abscess on her rectum and was misdiagnosed as having a hemorrhoid - simply because he DID NOT LISTEN to her symptoms. We went for a second opinion the following day because we knew she had been misdiagnosed - she was in so much pain. The new (competent) doctor properly diagnosed her (for abscess) and scheduled surgery immediately. Problem solved. This guy does not listen to his patients. Even after a visual exam of the abscess, he got it wrong

No, I would not recommend him at all. He is a rude unprofessional jerk with a nasty disposition.
