He may be a good surgeon but I did not think he was honest.

Talked about replacing disc. Asked about recovery, his response was I had a women I operated on that was back to work in a couple of days. Made the operation seem like a breeze. Look the operation up see what the recovery time really is. He is very personable I really liked his bedside manor just not honest about surgery.

Awesome physician!

Dr. Malcom has done four major back surgeries on me. I even had complications after my third (not related to his surgery) and ended up being on a ventilator for 10 days in a coma. Being a single mother and my oldest was 18, it was very scary for my children... Dr. Malcom prayed with my children and was there for them and I will always be thankful.. not only is he a educated surgeon, he also has a wonderful bedside manor.

He injured me horribly and left me disabled

He damaged my spine in surgery, paralyzed my left leg, fractured two levels of my spine and did not tell me. I had to go to other doctors to learn the extent of my injuries from surgery. He needs to retire. I was in the hospital and in-patient rehab for months, when he told me I would be home within 10 days. Post operatively, two years later, my pain is 5 times worse than before surgery. I am mostly bed bound now and prior to surgery was an industry executive. He would never answer my questions with a straight answer and from visit to visit would contradict himself. He also showed no specific interest in helping me, and would call my husband unsolicited but never return my call. That is as simple as I can describe my experience.
