I went in for lasik eye surgery and went out with mild discomfort. Dr malinowski told me to take phytizanafol antibiotics, without remembering that I was allergic to penicillin. I suffered a severe reaction and had to spend 2 weeks under the care of dr. Lester at Beaumont Troy. I have just been sent a hospital bill of $600,000. Which could’ve been avoided had dr malinowski double checked my chart. I do not recommend

I'm so disappointed
I saw her 3 months ago & she told me I had a stroke in my right eye. The headache & pain & lost of vision has continued to worsen. I ended up in the E.R. this morning & they said "did you know you have glaucoma" ? I said NO, I was never told that. They sent me to the eye institute right away in Royal oak & your pressure should be 6 & mine was a whopping "60", if Dr. Malinowski knew this 3 months ago she could of sent me somewhere to save my eyesight. I will not or would not ever trust her again. She just wanted the money & could care less of my eye sight. She just kept saying she was a retina specialist & she could of sent me to somewhere else for the help I needed ! She was only concerned about money in her pocket !!

After my cataract surgery, I had an inflammation and was only able to read the first letter E on the chart. I asked my surgeon if it could be fixed. He said no. I love to read and was devastated. Dr. Malinowski saw a reason for hope and after working with me for a few months, my vision has improved. I can read books on my IPAD and believe my eyesight with improve even more! Dr. Malinowski is patient and kind and a great Dr.

I was very impressed how the practice was prepared to receive patients during these times to keep us safe and still get the care we need. I came into the office and had my tests run with a follow-up by telemedicine appointment. All timely and safely orchestrated. Everyone was masked, temperature taken, few patients scheduled, I was quickly taken care of and was out of the office within twenty minutes. Did not have any fears about returning for any appointments in the future any one seeking a physician in this practice should also have no worries.
