this was my first visit.. dr gates was wonderful!!! very professional but yet took the time to discuss my autism and how it effects my life and to see if medically he could help!

October 24, 2017

I waited for 2 hours before we want in the office, then another 45 minutes sitting in the room. Terrible!!

Dr. Malek eased our concerns during a scary time in our daughters health. He explained what all he was going to do, her condition, what recovery would be like, and took the time to answer any and all questions and concerns I had going in to the surgery. He was great with my daughter and made sure she wasn't in pain after surgery. I would highly recommend him to any parent whose child is in need of surgery.
