Visit was great except I had to fill out the paperwork again. Everyone was very friendly. This is really annoying as this can be very time consuming. I hav an extensive health history and really didn’t see why I had to do it a second time.

The check in staff was polite and very professional and courteous. Wendy was very nice, and the young lady in the lab with glasses and short haircut that took my blood was very very sweet. I regret that I do notrecall her name. She had already inserted the needle and I was still waiting for the pain. I really did not detect that she had inserted the needle and was filling one tube of blood. That was amazing! NO PAIN. After 18 years with Kaiser, I did not want to switch providers, but my employer no longer offered Kaiser. I feel like I selected the best possible location and staff. I have a new appreciation for my new provider Cigna. One of the most enjoyable doctors visit in many years. I don't normally enjoy going. I am glad I was force to change. V.Reinoso

The doctor, staff and office were nice. However, he was very rushed, did not take my concerns seriously and the visit ended up being a waste of time, as I ended up going to another doctor a week later. We discussedmy medical history as is routine at most doctor visits. None of the conditions in my history were the reason for my visit, yet he billed my insurance company for "consultations" on every single condition. Could be an industry practice, but I've never noticed it before. I chose him due to the glowing reviews posted and I can see why some people are very enthusiastic about him, but I just can't agree based on my visit.

The Dr. was very knowledgable about my condition. He prescribed a medication, but also knew that my insurance would likely require a preauthorization, so he gave me 8 days worth of samples so I could start right away. That shows thathe's knowledgable about insurance companies and how they work as well. That is a big plus for me, especially with all of my conditions.

I saw Dr. Malik for back spasms when I did not have a primary physician. He had an immediate opening and I needed quick relief with a prescription. I got the prescription, but no other advice, so when my prescription ranout, I went back to see if I should get a refill just in case I needed it. He gave me one, but asked me if I had been doing stretching exercises, which I hadn't been, since he hadn't advised me to do anything the first time. I guess he thought it was obvious, but it wasn't. I would have thought he might have had suggestions as to a few basic stretches, but I got nothing so went home and found some good ones on YouTube before I eventually was referred to a Physical Therapist after a separate orthopaedic consult, not arranged through Dr. Malik.

Dr, Malik cares about patients very much. He is very passionate and responsible! He always asks questions and follow up after blood tests etc. He use tests a lot and that is good to patients especially older people. He is verycaring and make sure to give right medications.

Dr. Malik is thorough and very serious about ensuring that your health and care are the best. Dr. Malik is realistic about the fact that the patient must do his or her part in their health and well being, and assuch, a patient who is not prepared to do their part in their care is not coddled by Dr. Malik, and in fact is told that if he or she can't do their part in the care plan and personal health, then Dr. Malik cannot continue to serve as their physician. I very much like this transparency and honesty from Dr. Malik, and appreciate the depth of his concern to motivate me towards wellness and sustained qualify of life through his excellent medical care.

The asssistant or nurse asked me all the questions that I had already answered in the long paper work I filled out. She said, these questions are stupid, but I have to ask them - so unprofessional! Then an internsaw me for a few minutes, asked me questions again and left. She said the doctor would see me shortly. I was left waiting in the room for one hour, until I opened the door and asked if someone was going to see me. Yeap, they totally forgot about me. Then someone told the doctor about it and he rushed in, and leaned against the wall with his laptop in his hands and asked me again why I was there while looking at the screen. He spent only five minutes with me. They concentrate on technology, but NO personal touch whatsoever! I did get a call back from the doctor a week later telling me that my bloodwork came back from the lab and I was low on vit. D and I was a borderline diabetic. He asked me if I wanted a prescription for vit. D or if was going to get one over the counter. He also said to excersice more and eat healthy. It was nice to receive a call from the doctor himself, but the office visit was a total mess! I will not be going back.

My son had an ear infection but his pediatrician was booked for the day so I decided to call Drs First and they were able to accomodate him to see Dr. Malik within 30 minutes. Dr Malik was very friendly andhas great bedside manners. I definetly recommend Drs First as a primary care doctors or if you are in town for a day or two and dont know where to go if you get sick dont hesitate to call this office. Also, a big plus the staff is very efficient and friendly and believe me I've been to a lot of doctors and specialists and its very difficult to get a smile from the staff. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND DOCTORS FIRST!!

I found this practice when my existing doctor who was great moved to Las Vegas. After visiting this practice for about 2 years, and battling negative feelings towards aspects of it, here is how I feel presently after voicing my concernonly to be met with being told to go elsewhere. Doctor Malik often times has his PA's see his patients. This can get confusing and frustrating for them and the patients, as information can differ from PA to PA. Some of the information that they put on my file seemed inaccurate to me, but when I questioned it, they only adjusted it one time, and the rest I was told by Doctor Malik himself that they write the truth, if I dont like what they write, go see another doctor. Doctor Malik himself can be very condescending to his staff, he has corrected them in front of me, as the patient a few times. However when I had a concern with one of the PA's, he defended his PA and called me a liar. When writing his reports, which the patient has access to via the web portal, he was very condescending towards me, would not give me the benefit of any doubts, and was very quick to place blame. When I brought this up to him as a problem, and questioned some of his diagnoses', he told me to go find another doctor. Doctor. I feel that Doctor Malik has very poor people skills, and it is his way or the highway. I would not recommend him for new patients, and am in the process of finding a new doctor.
