Detroit, MI |
Dr Malas was incredible to our family. He treated me like an equal. He made my daughter feel safe and secure. He then referred us out to Motts Children Hospital when he knew he needed bigger facilities and more specialized doctors. This man saved my daughters life. He went to bat for us so many times.

Update from last review: using a new "IBS" diagnosis to explain failure to treat.
