Patient Comments (4)
in Cazenovia, NY |
I was seen by Dr. Malak in the hospital after having a stroke that affected my vision and balance. He identified the location of the tiny blockage in a narrow blood vessel deep in my brain which had not been noticed by other doctors. He gave me concise explanations of what had happened and differentiated my stroke from a TIA. Personable and focused on my case. I appreciated his expertise and would recommend him highly.

My situation is complex; however, Dr. Malak makes me feel at ease. He is by far my favorite physician.
Liverpool, NY |
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.
Syracuse, NY |
He was rude, condescending, dismissed and made diagnoses without any diagnostic tests coming back, TOOK A PERSONAL CALL DURING MY VISIT, and when I asked a medical question, he immediately changed the topic to how women tend to have my issues and why did I see a psychiatrist? All because I dared to ask hi a question, as his statements were contradictory. I will NEVER set foot in his office again. His staff is visibly intimidated by him. Arrogant and sexist. It was a horrible experience.
