Office Experience

Dr. Mallik is an excellent doctor and takes the time to explain everything. However, that is IF you get to see him. Half of the time you are scheduled to see the physicians assistant which are also attentive and informative but the waiting is absolutely ridiculous. If you have an appointment scheduled to see the doctor, make sure you take a book. I was scheduled for an ultrasound at 8am (supposedly the 1st appt of the morning) and at 9am I realized I hadn't been called. Now keep in mind this appt had been scheduled months in advance. When I asked how much longer the receptionist responded that one of the doctors squeezed in an emergency and that's why they were running behind. I understand that situations will arise that are out of your control but a phone call would of been nice to let me know that they were running behind. This is ALWAYS the case with this office. You wait an hour in the waiting room and then another 45min in the room before the doctor comes in. Needless to say at 9:20am I told the receptionist that I was leaving and to cancel my appointment. Not once did she apologize for the inconvenience. Despite the fact that Dr. Mallik is an excellent doctor I will be looking for another office to go to.

The Best of the Best

I've been a patient of Dr. Mallik for approximately 30 yrs. as a Juvenile, insulin-dependent diabetic. I have total faith in his decisions, and even if I occasionally see a Nurse Practitioner or Physician's Assistant, I know that he is still available if I feel it necessary. Yes, the wait is most often long, although this has improved very much in the last few years. But as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait! And once you're meeting with him, he will give you every minute you need, unlike some doctors who are required to keep their appointment times to 10-15 minutes per patient!

Even though one may wait for a while to see Dr. Mallik it is well worth the wait. He will explain all that you need to know on how to care for yourself (a diabetic). If you leave Dr. Mallik's office and you still don't know what to do about caring for your diabeties then you did not listen to Dr. Mallik. My wife and I travel over 400 miles one way to see Dr. Mallik.
