I highly recommend this specialist. He listens to your concerns, answers questions, and is very open-minded. He's not afraid to pull out a medical reference book if your case involves rare conditions. If you've got migraines, vertigo, processing issues this is the doctor you want.

The experience was remarkably helpful and informative. Dr. Abduk-Malak was serious, responsive and thorough in his questions and examination. I was especially impressed in his sympathy and understanding of my husband's problems and his interest in finding if there were additional factors that were contributing to his condition. It really is wise to get a second opinion from this caring doctor. Amy Hnatko

My situation is complex; however, Dr. Malak makes me feel at ease. He is by far my favorite physician.

Same response as the other comments. It was awful. Didn't even say hello. Very condescending. Didn't explain anything. Did not take me serious. Acted like I was an inconvenience. Didn't come up with a plan. I never want to go back to this doctor again. Worst experience I've ever had. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone.
